    Real time proxy - not real time.

    Hi,

    I am linking to 2K dpx files that are on my local .gen storage in a properly configured project. the clips playback in real time on the timeline but when i click on the real time proxy button to view them on my monitor they need to be rendered to playback.

    I'm running V10.1.1 on the xw8400 64bit Nitris platform with 8gb of RAM.

    Is the issue lack of RAM or is it an issue running V10 on the 8400 not on the 8600???

    Cheers

    Siôn

    You need the xw8600 with an nVidia FX3700.

    Though it was possible on the xw8400 with the FX3500 running DS V8.4. Is it because V10 tries to use the graphics card for this process whereas V8.4 would be utilising the Nitirs hardware? If so is it possible to force the DS to use the Nitris hardware?

    In order to use the Avid Nitris hardware, you need to scale the media to a size that the Nitris can play in real-time, and that is why you must process the proxies into cached media.  This process occurs quickly, unless you have hours of material...
