    Videocard for PME 7.0


      Can somebody advise me an videocard for the program. Im using it for edit sd-material so it's not very exciting . But are there any (budget) cards that perform well. Wich series do i have to look for? And aTi or nVidia?

          Virtually all video cards are made by either ATI or nVidia -- but stick with these two brands anyway.


          Beyond that, the program is not terribly video card intensive. Even a 128 meg card is good enough.


          Try to get a card that includes pixel shading, however. That way you can use some of the more advanced GPU effects and transitions in the program.

            I also responded to this request at the end of another thread.


            Basically, I said the same thing as Steve did, but he added the Pixel Shading aspect, that I had not thought about.


            Good call Steve.

              According to the Adobe information, I do not believe that a GPU with just Vertex Shader is going to work. Please read further.


              I would offer the following into the mix if you are trying to use the GPU Effects in Premiere Elements 7 or 8, namely, Page Curl, Refraction, Ripple (Circular). Same considerations for Premiere Elements 7 and Premiere Elements 8.

              GPU must support:

              DirectX 9.x and

              Pixel Shader (PS) 1.3 or later and

              Vertex Shader (VS) 1.1 or later.


              Refer to GPU Effects in Premiere Elements 7 or 8 Help PDF. A link to the version 8 Help PDF on the GPU Effects is posted below. Same as version 7.

                  Wish that I could help, but one of my nVidias is on my laptop, GeForce 8800m GTX, and the others are high-end nVidia Quadros, for 3D work. These are far more card, and far more expensive, than what you need.


                  I hope that others can help you more directly.


                  Good luck,
