I am close to buy Scratch Cine ,for various reason i had to buy another MacPro Last Week (2x2.23 Nahalem (corei7)),so i am considering to use this machine , that should be pretty powerful to Run Sratch.
Off course i am planning to add the 5600 FX.
I did some test ,but i am confused by the fact that Rendering out R3D to jpeg (just for the speed test and to be fast without huge raid 0 drives) using half res decode ,My Macpro render out at 10fps ...but the CPU stay at 35-40% usage...
At the Moment i have the standard Nvidia 120GT (but did not color corrected the images at all,no multy layers etc...( just exporting test)
is this card the the bottle neck that stop the system to render faster ?
Half decode R3D should use way more than 35% CPU , so maybe having the GT120 slow down the processing because scratch use the graphic card to resize etc...?
Or this 16 Cores is not the right machine ?,honestly seems that this 16 cores is running slower than the old 8 core in many application...
Anyone have scratch with Quadro FX5600 on a MAcPro?
Speed rendering out DPX? (or Jpeg if you don't have 350MB/s Drive ?)
Thanks a lot
