Is the Extruded Text filter extremely demanding on the CPU and graphic card in such a way as it could cause my NLE (Avid Media Composer) to freeze very often, after dropping it onto a clip?
I have 2 computers which are giving different reactions when dropping the Extruded Text filter onto a clip.
1. Windows 7 64bit Pro, CPU Core2 Duo, NVidia Quadro FX 3700. MC 5.0.3 (also tested with MC 22.214.171.124, MC 126.96.36.199r) Freezing almost always when dropping the filter onto a clip. If it doesn't freeze, and I later click on the "Open Text Editor" button to redo the text... it usually freezes then.
2. Windows 7 64bit Pro, CPU i5 Quadcore, NVidia Quadro FX 3500. MC 188.8.131.52 Working fine without freezing.
So the difference is mainly in the CPU.
Other BCC 3D filters seem to work correctly on both machines, as do all the other ones I have tried in BCC 6 and in AvidFX (Boris Red)
Is there any workaround to fix the problem with Machine 1?
I will eventually be upgarding it to a newer processor, but until then... any ideas?
Thank you for such a speedy reply.
I will indeed contact your support team and I will try and give them as many details as possible.
I hope we can solve the problem as I am just getting started on a series of video tutorials on MC and the BCC Filters.
I feel that Boris products are always being overshadowed by Adobe AE.
That is a shame, as Boris products can match AE in many repects - if you take the time to learn them.
