I have a graphics card question. I'm currently running a mac pro (mid 2010) with 2 x 2.66 GHz 6-core intel Xeon processor. 24 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC Ram. A NVIDIA Quadro 4000 2048 MB graphics card. Here is my question, is there a faster graphics card out there for mac? I'm having issues with smooth play back in HD in Premiere and of course I would love faster renders in Premiere as well as AE. Normally I have both Premiere and AE open at the same time, do you think 24 GB of ram is enough?

In your prefs for PPro...

how is your Ram Allocated for Adobe apps?

How much is left for the OS?

what kind of HD?

what kind of drive is it playing off of?

Hi Steve...

sounds like a pretty good configuration.

The Nvidia card should be quite good.

I'll let another expert chime in on the RAM but more certainly can't hurt.


Some workflow questions:

1) is 422HQ absolutely necessary? maybe it's a data rate issue with the amount of streams you are calling

2) what do you have your playback resolution set to in your program window?

3) What's your Preview Set up to in the Sequence. If you set it to match your working Prores codec, those preview files generated for any renders you may do during working can be used during export (if you enable use previews), which can speed exports significantly.

hth,

The Quadro 4000 is actually a bit underpowered: it sports only 256 CUDA cores.

Do you notice a big difference in performance between Mercury's software-only mode and hardware-accelerated mode?
