kona and rendering in pro res 422
on Apr 7, 2008 at 6:03:32 pm

It's my first post here, so hello I'm Core.
For the first time I'm doing a project loaded with effects and the render times are killing me(color, motion, speedchange with twixtor pro, super imposing in fcs) and this all in the apple pro res 422 Can someone inform me on shortening these render times on a mac pro, maybe with the Kona 3 or the Kona io you would make me real happy
I'm on a mac pro dual core with 6GB RAM, and a LaCie biggest as the media storage(5 discs in a raid 0)
thanks, Core

Twixtor is very slow due to all the calculations.

Motion and Color render faster with beefier graphics cards like the ATI 1900 or even the 2600.

Kona 3 and Io HD do nothing for render times. They allow the machines to work faster in more realtime and realtime previews in FCP but do not speed up renders.

Thanks for your reply,
So I better check out other graphic cards
But is that the only way to speed up renders?
Your Color tutorial on DVD was a great help by the way

graphics cards yes- FCP uses GPU processing on them. ( not on a capture card like the Kona)



[Core van der Hoeven] "is that the only way to speed up renders? "

Once you render the file - export the rendered version, then import back into your project.
then it is just video.

I do not think that a new graphics card will speed up Twixtor. It will speed up rendering & improve real-time previews of any FXPlug filters that you use, though.

Anything that helps is welcome
I believe the Ati 1900 is the fastes graphic card I can get for my first generation mac pro
I know, it's getting off topic

I'm on the same machine and just installed a new Nvidia 8800GT, which is available from Apple for two weeks now, so this is what's nominally the fastest, even though there are reports with the new MacPro that the 2600 is faster in Color and Motion, but I think this will be solved with new updates.

Cheers,
