windows xp 64bit support...

will aspect 5 install and run on xp 64bit? thinking of installing it and running production suite on it instead of xp 32bit. kind of been reading around and people seem to find speedwise its the same as 32bit however it appears to be severely more stable.

Yes we have many customers using XP 64-bit. Just watch out for driver support, the Panasonic P2 drivers are only 32-bit (last time I checked.)

Someone working with AspectHD, and Adobe Production Suite in XP 64?

Can you say there is a relevant improving performance?

What about the RAM issue, have you more than 4 G RAM installed?

Thanks

I`ve tried to work with prospect in xp64 but Production Studio had a lot of issues, for example i couldnt scroll the bars, sometimes i couldnt render even when using 8gigs of ram?

Someone of cineform support told me that there are some issues with Production Studio that are corrected on the new CS3

On my Dual processor, WinXp64, I tried to download ProspectHD but it would not install, but NeoHD did and it seems to be doing all we need. I have already converted several M2T files.

However, we will be testing the entire workflow on Wednesday.

well, no problem with prospect installing on my xp64. running a quad core with 4gig. btw, I read that the production studio does not like 8 gig and has some sort of check that will cause it to screw up if it sees more than 4gig. could be bs but I saw it a couple times on the adobe forums. it seems to run like a champ, the only issue is that after the studio finishes installing u lose your dvd-rom (code 19) b/c of something encore does in the registry. now there is a registry fix for that but I can't seem to find it. other than that it is definitely is more stable than my 32bit machine. I've thrown lots at it and not a single crash/error yet. render times are bout the same as my 32bit machine.

I run connectHD with no problems in XP 64 bit

The issue I have is that I can not convert P2 footage because panasonic does not have 64-bit compatible P2 drivers (at least that I know of - someone please tell me if I'm wrong)

Hi Brian,

Sadly that still seems to be true. You need the P2 drivers installed to install the Pansonic MXF demux and decoder, yet we don't need the driver to perform the conversion. Also the Pansonic demux and decoder do work on XP 64-bit, but getting them there will likely require breaking a license agreement. Plus, as the Panasonic MXF files are less than standard, other MXF demuxers don't work well on that media, so it rule using Raylight out. We are looking into solutions for 64-bit users of P2 cameras.
