Not to put down what your card is doing Steven, but,
My old GT240 could do that, 25 fps 6 tracks of Cineform 1080p with no FX at best full, no problems.
It would fall over when adding color correction or other fx.
My new GTX580 is better, but still not as good in Vegas as it is in the Adobe MPE.
1080p with heavy CC at best full is the dream.

Re: Your personal opinion on Vegas 11

Same here Steven, I found Cineform to be a piece of cake. It's the files that come directly from the camera that give me fits. But since AVCHD was primarily meant to be a delivery format, what can I expect, right?

Grazie
Grazie,

I am planning a 2013 project and am doing my homework. I am wide eyed at the new cams coming out and of course the software is a huge part of that. I was also doing a little project on computers. In addition, it would take an old fart like me a long time to get a feel for the Good the Bad and the Ugly !! So the communities experience would be priceless. Software is like a box of chocolates ............

Oh yeah, big guy? Did your old GT240 sound like a hairdryer at full bore? I think not. :)

One of my joys is applying Magic Bullet Looks as event FX and getting full frame rates at Preview/Best or Full/Best. Before my card upgrade, it was just awful.

Re: Your personal opinion on Vegas 11

I agree with Steven that Cineform files playback very well

With Edius and PP badly showing up Vegas for preview ability of raw video files, I'm with you Gerald, still dreaming. Transcoding to Cineform for every project as I had done previously was a nightmare workflow wise. Projects went from 60-100GB to 600GB or more, the nightmare portion being storage and backup. I had about 10TB of data storage space filled with up and constantly had to struggle choosing which files to delete to make room for another completed project.

My old system handled Cineform just fine as it was. I could've skipped $2500 worth of upgrade had I known that playback would still be choppy with a multicamera 1080p project.
