There have been a number of additional posts on this thread on the Digidesign User Conference since I posted the main findings here. But this one caught my eye as being in the same vain as the first. There had been some discussion on whether a USB to VGA adaptor might work so ‘Mubeau’ tried it and posted his findings…
I´m on G5, HD3, 2PTs screens, PT 7.4, VVTR and Canopus (on the PT mac and on the VVTR System, depending on the project)
Today i tried a USB to VGA/HDMI external video solutions.
1. I would not use this for video playback
(even SD has no good playback)
2. it was usable for the PT Mixer or HD content or something similar.
BUT: it also eats up power from the CPU, of course.
WHAT TO DO NOW?:
I have to upgrade my MAC since the G5 dual 2,5Ghz is getting to slow for me.
HD 3 accel with decklink (my favorite setup) means: PCIe expansion (I really dont want this!) I would also love to use a third video monitor.
Having said this: has anyone of you tried the new 3 x PCIe Expansion Box
I would be very surprised if this expansion bow would work with Pro tools. How many times have we been here before? Anyone up for an experiment?
