Edit Card Troubles
on Mar 10, 2007 at 4:51:56 pm

Hi

I am having difficulty finding a edit card that lives up to my expectations and also is compatible with my new build computer.

I have recently tried a Canopus Edius DVX and a Matrox RTX100 Xtreme Pro. The Canopus did not work with my system and had to be returned, and the Matrox RTX has irritating limitations such as no full size preview within Premiere Pro, slow timecounter refresh rate etc.

What is annoying me is that I have had my new PC built for quite some time and this card is the finishing touch to it which I cannot seem to achieve. Both cards I have tried are also the only ones that were really in my price range.

Could anyone offer any help/ideas?

Many Thanks.

I wouldn't use 945 chipsets for video stuff (they are OK for gaming and general stuff), 955, 965 and 975 are far better (955 only support pentium 4 and D).

Matrox RTX100/10 are about to be discontinued; and actually they never were that good IMO, but you should be able to output full screen video to a tv monitor. I prefer Canopus cards but u should build the system based on their suggestions.

Back to your system:

- Are u working with win XP or Vista?
- Are u working only SD video?
- Are u working with Premiere Pro 1?

Capture cards

Also since your using Adobe there is always the option of Decklink. Their software installs plugins/presets into Adobe. They have cards for pretty much any flavor of capturing you need with uncompressed quality and I havnt seen any Intel chipset boards that they dont work with. I would take a look at their website depending on what your capture needs are and your camera/deck connections are.
