Maximizing Real-Time Playback

There are a few things you Avid and Final Cut Pro Users need to consider when building or purchasing a workstation to achieve maximum playback performance from software-based real-time effects.

- Workstations with dual processors have a considerable advantage over single processor computers when it comes to real-time performance.

- The larger the cache (Level 3) the better the realtime performance.

- A faster memory bus allows for greater real-time performance.

- A fast hard drive is advantageous to the performance of real-time playback, especially when you are compositing multiple layers of superimposed video.

- A fast graphics card is a must. Final Cut Pro uses OpenGL to accelerate realtime display.
