Resolve 9.1 10 to 8bit monitoring issue.
on Jan 22, 2013 at 10:36:27 am

Hi there.
I've upgraded to 9.1 and now when switching from 10 bit to 8 bit, monitoring shows full scaled video out when paused. While playing it works fine. I like monitoring in 8 bit to get the extra 2 or 3 frames playback speed when I have a lot of nodes, specially when adding mattes and grain.
Did anyone else experienced this behavior?
Best regards

Hi.

I see you have 4000 as gui


I'd change that if possible.
Then you would not have to bother with this 8 bit stuff.

GT120 is ui by the looks. 4000 GPU.

yes but 4000 is insanely weak.

120 for gui and 4000 for gpu.

it would be not to expensive to get lets say 285 or 470 and have 10 bit running smoothly.

i myself would go 6xx seres.

yes one could maybe go and see 8 bit but it does not help as much as swapping gpu
is just my point.

Yeah dump the 4000 as GPU and get a 580 at least, I think you could then use the 4000 as a GUI card. Correct me if I am wrong but I think there is enough power in the Mac-Pro for this, your machine will be allot more powerful with the newer GPU.

Thank you all for the kind suggestions.
And I know I should put more ram in it, as it only has 8g.
But tha's not the issue here as this is not my machine, and please note that the specs are still within BM recommendations. Yesterday it was working pretty well and today its not. I mean, not the 8 bit part anyway.

No, for 580 you'd need an external power supply. I'd recommend 570 with no external PS.

No, an external power supply is not necessary. You do, however, need an adapter cable.

The statement above is based on the information provided by David Pirinelli from MacVidCards, who knows a thing or two about GPUs and their power requirements. If that is not enough, in addition to GT 120 I use GTX 570 and it is just barely works. Once in a while, when 570 is pushed extra hard, the power for the extra GPU exceeds the power envelop of a Mac tower and the system just shuts down. I would strongly advise against using GTX 580 without an additional external power supply.

And my statement is based on almost a year of running a GT120 and a GTX580 together in at least 5 Mac Pros running Colorfront software, never turning them off for months at a time, and never having one fail. And, BTW, having that configuration designed, blessed, and supported by Colorfront and its reseller for both us and numerous other customers.

Regardless of what you sometimes seem to think, Jake, I don't make this stuff up. I have at least as much experience as you do and when I say something here, I'm not guessing. That doesn't mean I'm always right, but I really don't take well to your insisting on turning every statement I make into some sort of contest.

No Mike. You're not running those computers, your company does. If something happens to those computers you will not be paying for the repair from your own packet. It's not a good idea exceeding computer power envelope and 580 is outside of it. I have yet to see a single user, that is running the 580 inside the tower. Everyone here (much more, than 5 users) only uses 570 for that task, successfully. But, hey, if you're fine with taking the risk of damaging your own computer, go ahead. I'm not willing to take that chance with my computer and I would strongly advise against doing it, as it may harm the computer, like here http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/277/22982.
You may feel, that I have no better things to do, but to constantly squabble with you, but I feel this opinion is ill advised, that shouldn't be followed.

I give up. Clearly my experience means nothing since I didn't pay for every machine out of my personal bank account. I guess the fact that I set up and am responsible for maintaining every one of them - not to mention that the configuration is approved by a major vendor - is just not valid enough. I bow to your superior experience, intellect, and arrogance.

Mike.
I stopped contradicting and answering your posts a long time ago. I suggest you do the same.
With this dangerous advice, that I felt needed a clarification and a clear warning.
And with this I bid you adieu, hoping to never to hear from you again...

Nerd alert.

Get a super-size shake for the haters!

We also have the GT120/5803GB card combo and know of a few other people running this setup for Resolve, CS6, Nuke, etc. But its not the overclocked 580's just the standard stock pc model 3GB running OSX10.8.2, if you run that with a quadro4000 i believe it would be too much of a power drain but with gt120 ok. Regardless I would say why not get the external power booster just to be safe ya know, especially if you have 4HD's RAID, SSD, Decklink, redrocket or whatever? That is a beefy card my friends, i think i found a slightly used one if you need and cant afford a new one:

http://www.amazon.com/Apple-MC002ZM-GeForce-Graphics-Upgrade/dp/B001V3DZD4/...

My interactions via ebay with macvid guy have been really poor gotta say people, terrible customer service. If i were building a new macpro for Resolve with no cubix i think the 120/570 combo is actually a great idea if you don't want the external power source, BUT that Booster is not expensive and its super easy to set up.

My two cents.
