Shamefully obvious mercury playback enquiry
on Apr 10, 2012 at 4:25:26 pm


I am an FCP user tentatively looking into switching to PP at the agency where I work.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a good guide to setting up PP to get the best realtime playback? We currently have PP installed on a 12Core Mac Pro with 32Gb of Ram running Lion.

I realise that the pre-installed Radeon GPU is not supported by CS5.5 but can I count on getting better realtime performance using PP on this setup than I get using FCP? If so, are there any setup procedures or gotchas I should look out for that I might miss, not being familiar with PP?

We just tried putting a DPX sequence on the timeline and our playback was terrible. At first I thought this might be a hard disc limitation, but I've seen a video on the Adobe site where we saw a DPX file playing on top of about 12 other HD files. Can anyone suggest what I might be missing here?

Sorry for being such a bumbling simpleton, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
