I have installed the trial version of Premiere 5.0 on my brand new msi ge 620 with intel i7, 8GB RAM on win 7.
When I tried to preview a footage from Canon 5D with color correction filter it did a perfect job. I was able to watch real-time playback.
Then I tried Mojo's Looks plugin and it gave an error saying that I don't have the drivers for my Nvidia installed. So I went online and installed them.
But with Nvidia, the preview performance dropped like a stone. I couldn't watch the preview even at 1/4 size. I switched back
to the onboard graphics card and it played fine again.
I know that I'm not supposed work with h264 files but still, isn't something wrong here?
What am I doing wrong?
Your Nvidia card is not supported by Adobe. There is a hack that might make it work Search Nvidia hack on this forum, or the hardware forum. Do what it says and you should be fine.
That's not a particularly powerful nVidia card. It's entirely possible that Looks, which is processed on the GPU, will run faster using the Intel graphics than the nVidia.
