Cineform Neo HDV & Vegas 8.0


I´m using the latest version of Vegas Pro 8.0
Lately I installed a trial version of Neo HDV. I wanted to see if the performance under that version changes something in my Vegas System.

To my surprise the speed of the intermediate files I rendered out from original HDV material (Canon XH A1) was pretty slow, I only reached about 10 fps instead of 25 fps. Nothing changed although I switched from "Best" to "Preview Mode".

Then I uninstalled NEO HDV an put the cfh.dll (Version 2.8) back in place ( I have read in older threads that sometimes Vegas makes problems when trying to install the latest Cineform software, so I saved it... --> windows/system32 an in the Vegas directory. But: Nothing happened. The old cineform codec 2.8 was back, but the files I rendered afterwards with the "old" cineform codec were as slow as before.

Does anyone has a clue what´s wrong with my system?

If you go to the cineform website and look at the technical stuff, cineform changes things I believe to the better I thing to yuv. I use cineform all the time to capture, usually to avi and edit that way. I have never really had to go at the film rate, usually its about half, but never let bother me. straight m2t I can edit at full rate. but as soon as I fx it the rate way down. Render rate is slow for me but its because the clips have been changed some. I render usually at a higher bit rate which slows it down again, a 5 minute clip for me might take a hour or two.
