    Media Composer 6 Video hangs

    I've just upgraded my system to Windows 7 and Composer v6 but the video is hanging on playback.

    I'm wondering if the video card could be the problem, it's an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512.

    Composer 4.5 worked fine and I upgraded the drivers to be compatable with Windows 7 but it's not part of the NVIDIA Quadro FX family, so could that be the issue?

    Would it work if I rolled back the driver? I really don't want to have to buy a new graphics card.

    I've a Quad core 2.4GHz processor with 4 GB of RAM

    Hi,

    The drivers are most likely the problem.  Since the Avid-supplied drivers are all for Quadro FX cards, you've got some work ahead of you trying different drivers until you find ones that work.

    When I went from Vista to 7, I eventually let Windows Update find whatever drivers it wanted to run, and that worked, so if you feel like you've tried all the drivers there are and still aren't getting anywhere, that's worth a shot.

    One other thing is to make sure you've got the right version of Quicktime installed.  Check the version matrix to make sure:

    Use 285.62 for Geforce or the newers always for plain Geforce.

    What I have seen at my laptop which has a 540M, is that not only works fine

    but it uses OpenGL for Looks 2 which speeds the rendering up to 2-3x from CPU rendering.

    And as Carl says you need 7.7.1 for 6.0.1.
