I'm quite confused about the capabilities of a few of the video cards mentioned on here, so I was hoping that someone could please explain the difference between WYSIWYG enabled cards such as the Matrox Parhelia APVe, the accelerated cards such as the RTX100, and the faster Open GL cards that support multiple monitors and TV out (nVidia 7800, Quadro, etc.) when used with Adobe Premiere and After Effects.
Specifically my questions are:
1. Does the WYSIWYG feature of the APVe accelerate the TV output or does it only display as fast as your system display/render?
2. With the Open GL cards such as the 7800 and Quadro allow you to view Premiere and/or After Effects on TV out (e.g. provide WYSIWYG)? I'm assuming it doesn't accelerate either program, is that correct?
3. Am I correct in assuming that the RTX100 only accelerates Premiere and not After Effects?
4. It's my understanding that After Effects likes fast Open GL cards. If this is correct, will a fast open GL card accelerate After Effects rendering/preview times?
1) No, it does not accelerate - only provides the output.
2) These cards provide no acceleration, and unless there is a specific plugin for Premiere or After Effects from these cards, you can essentially only use a TV as a second monitor... your usage as a preview monitor in software is not as good as a WYWIWYG plugin.
3) Yes. Although it does supply a WYSIWYG plugin for AFterEffects for NTSC preview (as well as Photoshop and a few other things)
