Macbook Pro 9,1 OK for resolve?
on Jun 21, 2015 at 8:30:43 pm

I was under the impression that my Macbook Pro 9,1 which i believe is the most loaded and last pre-Retina version was approved for running Resolve 11. But when I look at the configuration guidelines it says it must be a Retina model.
Mine is has a 2.7Ghz icore7 processor with 4 cores and 16G of RAM. It has 8MB L3 cache and dual graphics cards - the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M and Intel HD Graphics 4000. Will this work with Resolve 11. Any limitations?

I certainly can open resolve and have done minor color correction with it but haven't done anything stressful yet.

One thing I notice is stuttering while playing XAVC-I 1920x1080 material. Seems like ProRes is OK though.

Are there settings to facilitate real time playback as there are in FCP 7.

I think it has to do with screen size-- real estate. My non retina 15" won't allow me access to the buttons at the bottom of the interface to select color room, edit, etc. If I plug in my 27" thunderbolt monitor it all works fine.

I also have a 27" Apple monitor running through a Belkin T-bolt express dock , so screen size isn't an issue. I was just wondering if I should expect that this will work OK and what issues am I likely to come up against .

Are there any settings like "RT" in the old FCP 7 that facilitate real time playback in Resolve.

Warren,

I just got answer on the blackmagic forum that my 1GB VRAM was way underpowered for UHD and not even good for HD . What's your experience been on your 15" in Resolve? any UHD?

Leonard,

I haven't done UHD but HD works perfectly fine. I think I have more than 1 gig of gram in my Macbook Pro, but I have to double check.

[Leonard Levy] "Are there any settings like "RT" in the old FCP 7 that facilitate real time playback in Resolve."

No. WYSIWYG for playback speed is determined by your system build.

There is a cache hierarchy for complex corrections or add-on FX filters, but you need to play the clip through once for it to build. Search for "smart" cache.
