Frustrated

I'm working on a new piece and I have noticed that the Aspect Hd effects are (putting it politly) limited. And if you try and use a premier effect you have to render it even to preview. Is there a work around for this? Am I just doing something wrong? I want to purchase some more effect plugins, but not if they are going to be basically useless. The system is a Dual 3.6 Xenon, 2 gigs of ram and a quicksilver 400 gig drive. PP1.5.1 and Aspect 3.3, and Nvidea card. Everything else seems to work well.

Aspect HD is just like all other accelerators in that is provides it own filters for RT processing -- the lack of real-time preview of Premiere filters is the same on hardware based accelerating products (it is the nature of acceleration.) Aspect HD comes with all the commonly used transitions and color filters, plus it supports real-time motion and opacity controls. The filter set is targeted to the majority of film and television production, which don't a lot of 3D or custom filters. A real-time keyer might be nice, yet the commercial non-RT keyers would be preferrable to most users. Are there particularly filters that request for a future version?

Well as i get deeper into this project I'm finding some other things that it doesn't like. ie... 20 min render time for a 30 second video clip that has been speed up. A green blip when that video goes in or out of a title or other piece of video. Any ideas?

Xeons can be a little slow but not that slow, you need to contact tech support if issues continue. Note: your speed up may have frame blending on, if you are going 10X faster you will be mixing ten frames to produce one output, that might explain you render time. Turn frame blending off for speed up, then test your render speed.

Thanks that helped some. Green blip is still there. so it's off to file the ticket. One thing that I have to say is your tech people are great. Very fast and professional.
