From what I understand Motion solely depends on the graphics card for real-time playback and renders. (1) Is this true? (2) How can I make Motion faster, from my Mac Pro specs below, its already pretty quick with a ATI Radeon X1900 XT with 512 vram? (3) To my knowledge Motion doesn't rely on help from either a Kona card or in my case the Black Magic Intensity Pro card. Is this correct?
When working in 3D, my machine gets a bit sluggish. Is the only way to deal with this by adding in a faster graphics card? What can I do to speed up the process?
Is it true that After Effects work on line with a Kona or BM card? And does this help releave stress on the processor and graphics card?
