just set up Premiere Pro CS5 on a totally new Win7 platform. When working with a native Premiere Pro sequence scrubbing, fast forward and all other timeline responses are very fast (footage is XDcam EX 35 mbit) and we could even manage up to 7 layers same time.
So now we set up the BMD Decklink Studio card with the new DeckLink 7.6.4 drivers and created a sequence (BMD XDcam EX sequence). Well, the thing is that now the response of the timeline is much slower and we are able to playback 4 layers of HD footage only.
Does anybody else has such problems with the performance?
Regarding the preview quality in Blackmagic projects being locked to 1/1 - it#s the same over here but I think this is because the output of the BMD card is directly mapped to the program windows hence pixels can not be reduced, so guess this is normal.
