Videowave: Software Or Hardware


malatekid

Question

In EMC7.5, I can see all available 3D transitions and other stuff that now no longer appear when I use EMC8.

 

I have the following video card (I hope I got the right information):

 

Intel® 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family

 

I used the Graphics test and it selects Software.

 

Thanks.

 

By the way, how do I attach an image? I tried so I can give a better visual image of the Device description but Paste does not work. I am using SnagIt to capture the image I would like to paste onto this issue.

'Off-loading' means the application actually uses the Graphic Processor on the video card to 'render' that portion of the video. It will then use the CPU to render the other parts. Rendering video uses very complex mathematical computations. For the 3D parts, the graphics processor is better at that than some CPUs.

 

Thanks for the info.

Actually you don't have a card, that is a chip set (on board). You can try to update the drivers for that chip set and it may work, you can continue to use what you have (without the 3D transitions ) or you can add a card. You didn't state if you have a desktop or laptop. You should be able to update the drivers here.

 

If you can't find it below the message posting window, you don't have the ability; it must be turned on by the administrator.

MyDVD and Videowave 8 can now take advantage of better video cards by 'off loading' some of the video processing to the GPU on the graphics card. This process is used mainly for the 3D transitions and effects. If your video card does not support this, then the 3D functions will not be available.

Ok, I'll look into an updated driver. I have a desktop (Dell GX280).

 

Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

Sorry but I don't know what "off loading" mean?

 

Also, what I cannot understand is that in EMC7.5 I was able to do all those 3D transitions in all my Videowave projects and I am using the same machine. And now they are not available to me in EMC8?

 

So, based on those info above, does my card (or chipset) support 3D functions?

 

Thanks for your feedback.

That's the way of progress for you ! :) Since you have a Dell, you might be better off getting the updates from that site. Although there were some 3D transitions in V7/7.5 , V8 has many more and they are more complex requiring more rendering. That's why the video display has to be up to date.

I went to the Dell site and there are new drivers and an updated BIOS (12/2005). If the driver update doesn't fix the problem, you may want to considet the BIOS update. Be careful if you do, errors in procedures result in new boat anchors.

I will try the driver update.

 

Thank you!
