It is the best price/performance card available today, but it might be overkill for a simple NLE like PP. If you are into 3D, using Maya, Vue, Poser, 3DS, or similar you will benefit. Be aware however that the current drivers have some problems with overlay.
Thank you for the information.
Can you go into more detail about the overlay problems for me, I would appreciate that.
Yes, I would like to know more to. I can buy one of the cards for 250.00 from a friend right now.
Thanks in advance. Can it do HD?
Hi Harm, or anyone,
does anyone know what Harm was talking about with the problem with the 8800 and overlays ?
I've started using Magic Bullet Looks in my productions. Wonderful software. Really steps up the 'look' of my videos. (Clever name, that.)
Because Looks uses OpenGL 2 for rendering, the faster the GPU in your system, the faster Looks effects will render out. And these are NOT normally fast effects, so any help I can give them is good. A card such as an 8800 would be a good investment for such things.
Magic Bullet Colorista is the same way.
The GPU should be a good platform for video acceleration transcoding, right? Parallel processing and so on. Is there any solution? I'll check the NVIDIA web site.
Premiere on it's own will use the GPU in a limited fashion. Right now, the CPU is the transcoding workhorse, though.
I just found this on the NVIDIA web site: http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_showcase.html
The last entry shows some transcoding being done
