    Video Editing Card or Not?

    seanbrennan Level 1

      Hi. Currently I do not have a Video Editing Card but am using Premiere Pro CS4 quite successfully, capturing footage through the IEEE 1394 and editing in the timeline.

      I'm being told to get a proper Video Editing Card like (Matrox RT.X2) but my question is, since I have a fairly fast PC (Core 2 Quad, 4 GB Ram/Win XP Pro), do I actually need one, what else would I gain?

      I'm fairly happy with the rendering times, they're pretty quick and I'm not interested in realtime effects. I'd like to know if you guys all have powerful video editing cards or if anyone edits without, relying on processor and system?

       

      thanks
