Best upgrades to speed up Motion?
on Jun 5, 2009 at 9:01:59 pm

Hi, I'm a motion newbie, mostly working with templates and stuff like that.

A lot of these templates use a huge amount of power.

Right now I've got:

Nehalem 2.66 GHZ 4-Core
8 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeoForce 8800 GT


... From watching the activity monitor when rendering big Motion and FCP processes, the bottleneck does NOT seem to be either the processor (usually at below 150%) or the RAM (usually 4 or 5 gigs free at any time).

.... Am I then correct in thinking that the only thing that would be make a difference be to upgrade to the ATI RADEON 4878?

Thanks any opinions....

RAM helps but the 4870 card is the only thing that matters in the currently available rev of Motion.
Just a few weeks ago the 3870 was the last word in graphics so on a few months, the 4870 will be obsolete, no doubt.
