Hey Guys...

while we routinely rock thru SD commercials building them completely in Motion.

HD performance has been pretty dismal so far.

I'm wondering if anyone out there has tried the new NVidia 4800 for the mac with motion for HD work and how it performs?

Don't waste your money - the drivers aren't optimized for Motion. Best card right now is the ATI Radeon 5870. 4870 is almost as good.

Thanks Mark!

good to know.

How does the 4870 and 5870 handle HD?

the Gforce 8800 GT we're using crawls unless I do a lot of pre-baking.

Depends on what you are doing, but lots of RAM and this card make a big difference.
