hey, thanks

yeah i spent the afternoon trying things, it seems to be a limitation with GL buffering??? and going over 2048 pixels wide

resolume even at standstill with no clips loaded drops fps to around 30fps when comp size is 3072x768

i bit the bullet and went back to 1920x480. running fine, though theres no great improvement over my old HD with the new SSD when it comes to vj'ing and playing clips back via resolume. but apple limits the sata to 150mb/s in this 1st gen mbp.

Going with a SSD and a nVidia GTX 470 with 1280 MB next week to help playback of 1920x480 clips which has been mediocre, even with DXV codec. One are is the size of the clips. A two minute clip is 1GB. My GPU is has only 800MB of ram, plus I only have 3.5 GB of volatile ram. Hoping to see some improvement with the new drive.

My system:
Win xp
HD 7200 rpm
4GB of ddr2 800 ram
CoreDuo 8500 3.16GHZ
Nvidia GTX 260 896MB

Next month, I will be updating to Win 7 64bit and 8GB of ram.

I should install Resolume on the SSD?
I'm sure it will help since it takes so long to load already on the HD.

Okay, went with a brand spanking new Nvidia 470 card with 1280GB of memory and a 120GB solid state drive. Everything is working very well so far, no hiccups so I'm very happy :-)

Think I finally built something worth performing with. 1920x480 x 3 layers no problem (each layer about 800MB). DXV is running smooth as can be. Will post later when I test more effects. But for now, I'm sure the SSD is helping the most.
