I've exhausted my google searching capabilities... figured this was the best place to go.
I'm running Avid DV Xpress 3.5 on a 2.8ghz P4 w/ HT, 1 gig of ECC RAM, 30 gb main drive, 300 gb sata video drive, audigy, and a dual-head Matrox g550 video card...
This is my problem... when I play clips within Avid, the video stays frozen on a still image while the audio proceeds as usual. When I fastforward or rewind, the image moves... once I hit play, it freezes again.
Here's the weird thing... when I use only *one* display (disabling dual head), avid works. The video plays like it should. The problem resumes the second I go back to dual-head, regardless one if the two displays are set w/ separate resolutions, or locked into the same one.
What am I doing wrong? Is there a setting I need to enact? Something I'm overlooking? Because as far as I knew, the G550 was compatible w/ avid.
When you suggest trying to change the preview windows to the other monitor, are you referring to simply dragging the preview over to the other side? Or is there an actual option to select within Avid xpress? If it's the first, then I've already tried that to no avail.
