    Default Rendering speed test !!!

    Hi All

    Recently bought a
    HP XW6600, Quad Core Xeon E5420, 2.5GHz, 8GB RAM, 250GB HDD, DVD+/-RW, +extra 500GB (7200rpm) second drive, Nvidia quadro FX 1700 512MB Graphics, - mainly to edit HDV/SD footage In Premiere CS3.

    I captured 30 secs of HD footage, applied a duration/speed of 50% which extended the footage to 60 secs and then rendered it.
    I was hoping that it would render in a few seconds but it took 2.5 mins. My previous pc - this test would take 5 mins.
    So the HP is 2 times quicker at rendering then my old machine (pentium 4) but for me this seems really slow still.

    What times can you guys achieve?, and what can I do to speed up rendering time? Will a matrox card (RT.X2) make any difference?

    Any ideas would be really appreciated .

    Thanks

    Maxx

    Matrox - no, prob not - Alan is the expert, he might see this.

    Does s ware use all the cores - probably does.

    If you want sensible render times stick with SD - shit render performance and sluggish behaviour on the time line is why I am still sticking with SD.

    Default rtx2 provids realtime

    Hi Maxx,

    What Mark is saying is not true, with a rtx2 your speed changes would be in real time. No rendering needed! So it's much faster that what you're getting now.

    You would get many more realtime layers of video and graphics and more effects in real time including color correction, chroma/luma keying, speed changes,blur/glow/soft focus, 3D DVE and much more.

    You can get some additional info here:

    Hope that helps,
    Jaro

    Sorry not trying to post another reply that sounds like an endorsement haha. But you should mabye take a look at upgrading to premier cs4.

    Your video cards nice, but cs3 isnt even taking advantage of it. CS4 does gpu video encoding rather than plain old cpu encoding. Imagine if you had 3 of them with sli?



    Whats the differnce? Well cpus can process 1 bit at a time. Where GPUS are ment to process everything at once. Mythbusters explain it best if your interested.
