Because the MPE with a supported card plays back stuff in RT, pressing Enter only plays back the timeline. To render when the MPE is hardware accelerated, you need to go to Sequence | Render Work Area. The hardware-accelerated MPE will always(?) put up a yellow bar.
When you use an effect or transition that isn't GPU accelerated, the MPE drops back down into software rendering mode. That triggers a red bar for the affected footage.
The hardware-accelerated MPE will always(?) put up a yellow bar.
for difficult codecs. For easy codecs, like DV AVI, there is no render bar at all, at least as long as the source material and the sequence settings match.
Thank you very much, that was the problem.
Sure do appreciate it!!
You are most welcome, and glad to help.
Every now and then the WAB hangs me up too. I'll go to Export my Audio, and poof - done! "Hey," I think, "that's much too quick!" I know that the WAB was set to partial.
