      Uh, am I missing somthin' here?

      Are we watching Edius edit SD on a mac using this?

      How is it with a real workload?

      How much CPU actually gets used?

      Can you have Edius and After Effects open a the same time and still get along?

        Yes SD alas...its still usable for the internet and delivery.

        Its pretty responsive. And yes I could have other Mac Programs running quite quickly. Take into account that I grabbed the whole 1920x1200 screen with a screen recording program as well.

        As Far as CPU Load Look up in the Right TOP Corner of the Video.

          Looks promising BUT what about output to a monitor? None? and How did you get the dongle to work?Or should'nt I ask?

            One point of intrest may be memory, if its using OSX then you can flood it with memory to get better performance. The downside is if its anything like parralles it cuts your memory in half so you would have to double it.

              Dongle works fine its a legal version

              The funny thing is that the Fusion Version renders (Xplode) faster than the actual Windows XP Boot.

              I don't use an external monitor ... anything I do goes straight to the internet for playback on a computer.

                I'll have to download that demo to try it on my Hackintosh quad 2.4 now. In theory wouldnt a NX board work? Does VM reconize windows drivers and such?

                  Why not just use the Bootcamp drivers with your Intel Mac? It runs natively and has hardware support. I think Fusion is ok for people who are just doing basic things such as using Microsoft Word and other applications that aren't available under OSX.

                    Yes I don't get it. Bootcamp is free easy and as you say the hardware support.
                    For EDIUS use bootcamp.

                      True but this shows me how much Edius tied to the Graphics Driver.

                      What I was saying for people who have macs there is an easy way to run edius with out having to quit out of OS X and re-boot into bootcamp. Plus I don't have to create another partition to boot into XP like you have to with Boot camp. Fusion uses a Hard Drive file to Boot from. I can Dynamically resize that Drive as well.

                      Also this is the strange part explained again.

                      My System is a Apple Mac Pro - Graphics Card Nvidia 8800 GT. When Running in BootCamp. My rendering time is quite slow. When running under Fusion my rendering times are much faster. This shows that Fusion somehow emulates a Graphics driver & hardware card that is more compatible with Edius.

                      Traditionally Emulation has been slow. I was just blown away by how well edius was running under Emulation. So basically I'm running Edius on OS X.

                        I tired it out, the main reason I thought about it was I find myself using Windows less and less for editing. Edius is the only thing really keeping me on XP. Id like to be able to use Livetype and Motion without restarting but after playing with the beta I see more than one thing that pretty much makes that impossible. 1. It crashed on me twice 2. It couldnt see any of my drives 3. It ran really slow and only showed 512 megs of ram 4. I couldnt get a dual monitor working. Maybe if I played long enough theres solutions to these issues plus its only a beta its definatley a step in the right direction.

                          Rendering is done by the cpu not the GPU so I don't get your logic.?

                            Not necessary in Edius. I think it uses video card buffers to do the rendering as well.

                              No it does not. Video card handles the overlay and as far as my information goes it has nothing to do with rendering.

                              Rendering is CPU.

                              So the reason for using fusion is not accurate at all.


                              RENDERING = CPU
