    Mercury Playback Engine with Nvidia 9600m GT 15" Macbook Pro (early 2009)


      I recently upgraded to CS5 for the sole reason to transition to Premiere CS5 for the Mercury playback engine with use in Canon DSLR footage. I saw a demo of the Adobe video evangelist (his name escapes me at the moment), editing DSLR footage in realtime using a 15" Macbook Pro. I looked at the system requirements for the MPE and it seemed that even the newest Macbooks do not contain one of the few supported graphics cards needed to have the hardware support for MPE. I figured since the demo video showed otherwise, I was safe.


      But I have spend hours over the last week trying to get my Nvidia 9600m GT 15" Macbook Pro (early 2009) to perform like in the demo with no luck. Instead it plays a few frames and stops. Even if rendered. Any ideas of what I am doing wrong? I saw some people hacking some files in Windows to get Premiere to run with any graphics card, but is there any solution for those of us in SnowLeopard?
