I purchased the RTX100 a few months back in effort to upgrade my suite. My computer guy and I did everything possible including a purchase of a Matrox recommended mobo. The RTX100 was a complete disaster and we sought outside help/advise.
If I stayed inside of the "Matrox project" parameters and used only the Matrox toolbox/effects package, the experiance was pretty good. Problem is I find the Matrox tools incredibly clunky, far too many keystrokes and frankly ll the custom presets were cheesy and a problem to hurdle. When I went "home" and used Premeire 1.5 (love it) the "realtime" promised by matrox fell quickly by the wayside. Worse than that, my projects became so horribly unviewable in the timeline preview that I lost most of my capability. Needless to say, I had to remove the RTX to get my suite's productivity back.
Has anyone else had problems such as this with the Matrox 100? If you've had a good experience with it I'd like to hear about that also and it would be great if I could see a finished production or two.
Can one use the 100, forget about doing "matrox projects" and employ PPRO all at the same time? And finish some reletivly complex projects with out going crazy?
