What software are you using at the moment?

You would also probably have to upgrade the specs of your computer, I would check the specs on Matrox's web site.

Ah it makes a bit more sence if it were tracks. I'm using premiere at the moment. I tried the but you are correct in me needing to upgrade my system before buying an RT X10 etc...

to be honest after what David said above i'm not so keen on buying a card just yet, it seems like a luxury rather than a necessity and i'll have to get used to waiting to see the results of my work.

While you are at it, you owe it to yourself to check out the Canopus products. They've had real-time products for a long time and should be considered if you are looking for a new editing suite.

Like the Matrox, you will be happier with a faster computer system but you can run realtime using something like StormEdit (which, given what you need for editing may be exactly what you want) with your present system.

As with any editing system, check the compatiblity pages (Canopus web site) on your computer hardware before you decide.

And Canopus is realtime for DV and analog outputs (Composite and S-Video).

Demo software is available for download.

Double check the compatibilty charts, and then search through the forums on their websites. You are never really sure what bugs might be a problem, and which just need a tweek.

I have been using the Canopus Storm with Premiere 6.something, with no problems. My Abit KG7 raid Mobo was a different story though... I spent a year with major problems, until I discovered I needed to just tweek a setting or two. Rock solid ever since.
