Mac Grinds to halt when exporting
on Jan 14, 2009 at 12:57:26 pm

Hello,
I am doing a fairly simply pan and scan with some maps at the max resolution motion can handle, they are PNG's, with some basic strokes arrows etc. the project is HDV size and i am exporting to ProRes.
I realize motion is not exactly fast when it comes to exporting which is fine can deal with that, got used to it and now time it in with the jobs, but the annoying thing i am finding which has not occurred before is it is slowing my mac to a crawl when exporting, i cannot even go on the internet let alone work in FCP, its like being in slow motion land. I understand Motion uses the graphics card, but it is a good card in the machine NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 Graphics 1.5 GB.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance
Miles

What's the resolution? Might want to knock it down a bit and use PSD instead of PNG.
