Faster version of Magic Bullet is out

A faster version of Magic Bullet is out, and it's suppose to be 3.8x faster then the current version. But the update, as far as I read, is only for P4 systems.

280% faster, so they say.. shesshh, this just tells you how unefficient the algorithm was in the first version.

Most software algorithms are... I mean, what really does work
faster on 2 GHZ PC compared to a 400 mhz celeron system?
Only the highly optimized graphics rendering engines mostly.

Optimizing engines & algorithms is a real hard thing to do. It
takes practice, a lot of time and knowledge....

I went to my friend's studio and they were rendering a corperate video (2min) in Magic Bullet, and even on their dual 2.4Ghz Xeon system with 2Gb of ram it was painfully slow.

It's a free update, but 1.5 hasn't been released yet, it's still in beta. It's optimized for p4, but runs fine on AMD too, haven't done comparitive speed tests yet :-)

Magic Bullet Suite 1.1 doesn't run well on AE 6.0.

Magic Bullet Suite 1.5 will fix this and is currently in beta.
