So we recently bought a Red Epic and would like to get the most out of our main workstation
Mac Pro (Mid 2010)
2X2.66 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
24GB 1333MHz DDR3 ECC
2X ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB
So my main problem is smooth playback of files in PP even at low playback resolution. The Mercury engine in Premier does not support the graphics cards and i think this may be part of it. This led me to beleive that it may be worth replacing one or both cards to one of the supported cards.
Any suggestions for hardware or software configurations to get smooth playback.
Ideally we want to avoid the online/offline workflow and work natively on the R3D files.
