  • Whitch video card support edius 5

    I am into buying a new video card and want to be sure to get
    one supporting Edius 5 gpu transition.

    Thanks

      There is an updated hardware compatibility list via the support pages, which EDIUS V5 tested.

        OK...so I have E5 on order already. I was thinking I should upgrade my graphics card. I currently have a 256mb geForce 8600GT. I understand that 512mb will help with GPU in HD.

        How much of a difference will I notice if I go with a 128bit card as opposed to a 256bit card. My problem is the main editing machine is in a small form factor case. It appears I have room in there for a full size card but it may be a tight squeeze. I was hoping to get a smaller sized card that will fit easily. When looking around it appears most of the smaller ones are 128bit.

        Any suggestions?

          256MB will be ok if you are still using 1440x1080 presets. When you move into 1920x1080 presets using 1920x1080 files, 512mb is the starting point.
          I do not know how the 1gb cards will improve performance.
          So, if you are doing SD or HDV presets, stick with what you have. Unless, you just want to upgrade.

            Cool...I am just doing regular HDV at 1440x1080. There may be only one or 2 GPU transitions I will use anyway since most of my stuff is straight cut or dissolve.

            Does the better graphics card help with the Vitascene stuff or any of the 3rd party stuff. There are a few things in there I plan to implement and if it helps there it will be worth the investment.

                I've got the 9800GT with 1Gb but the only problem is you need a good power supply. The GPU effects are all very quick and all available.

                  Check out the GT260 or GT280 NVidia cards, not very dear now, NVidia had to drop the price on them to compete with ATI, as for the 9800 cards very power hungry cards, up to 225 watts, WOW!

                  Cheers

                    Vitascene is full GPU. My answer was based on Vitascene experiences.
                    For anything that is GPU based, video ram is the key. As I said in my previous post,
                    I do not know how much of a difference you will get with a 1gb card as opposed to a 512 card for the price.
                    Even on my lowly Sapphire 2600xt 512 card ($75), Vitascene works quite well. But, I do have a PNY 8800GTS 512 ($300) on my main machine. That replaced a Quadro FX 1500 256mb card. 1920x1080 effects worked flawlessly after the change out.

                      Jerry, I think this is not only amount of RAM (You mean video RAM, right?), I checked on X850, X1950Pro, X1950XTX, 8800GT cards, every next card worked better, all of them had 512 mb vRAM. I got GeForce 280 now with 1Gb of vRAM, but I will replace my motherboard to make it work...
                      I will describe what I got after all those adventures...:)

                        So, you coughed up close to $700 for the card? I hope you can see a major improvement.

                          i. The number of processing cores varies by model. GeForce GTX 280 has 240 processing cores. GeForce GTX 260 has 192 processing cores.
                          ii. GeForce GTX 280/260 GPUs ship with hardware support for NVIDIA PhysX technology. NVIDIA PhysX drivers are required to experience in-game GPU PhysX acceleration. Refer to www.nvidia.com/PhysX for more information.
                          iii. NVIDIA SLI certified versions of GeForce PCI Express GPUs only. A GeForce GTX 280 GPU must be paired with another GeForce GTX 280 GPU (the graphics card manufacturer can be different). SLI requires sufficient system cooling and a compatible power supply. Visit www.slizone.com for more information and a listing of SLI-Certified components.
                          iv. Requires application support for CUDA technology.
                          v. Playback of HDCP protected content requires other HDCP-compatible components
                          vi. Feature requires supported video software. Features may vary by product.
                          vii. Requires an NVIDIA HybridPower-enabled motherboard.

                            Steve,
                            Your definition and my definition for major improvement is probably different.
                            At 700 bucks, and a new power supply and probably a new motherboard, I would expect full RT Vitascene effects within 1920x1080 preset with 1920x1080 files for more than 1 sec.
                            There is no doubt that it is a very powerful card. I will be interested in reading what it actually does with GPU effects. If it won't do the description above, I would have a hard time shelling out for that puppy.
                            I'm trying to hold off on buying hardware until after the 1st of the year. Nehalem is coming and the Mac Pro version definitely has my interest.

                              There was no 700 bucks card. I got a crazy deal-I paid $300 for the card and sold all the old ones... So I am ok. Next thing is you will NEVER get FULL REALTIME with Vitascene. Even on $10000 card.
                              Again, REALTIME is when you put your timeline cursor at the exactly beginning of transition/effect and, when you hit space, it will run with blue line AND BUFFER SIZE WILL INCREASE!
                              Approx 20% of Vitascene is not realtime.
                              And yes, I wii buy new motherboard, but I wanted it long time ago.
                              The only my concern that IN REAL WORLD you not always benefit from new hardware for a simple reason- some older software will not recognize your card/s and will not work properly... For example, this card has 512bit memory interface, which is a little unusual and new for hmmm... some software developers.
                              Anyway, we'll see.
