NAS drive ?

March 4, 2007 | 4:49 am

Greetings folks

I am wanting to connect an external RAID array in order to get a speed benefit with playback

I will be working with a gigabit networked powerbook G4 1.67 GHZ and a new intel machine (waiting for santa rosa in may…)
and I would like to share video files between the two machines and with the external drive. (possibly including HD footage)

so some sort of gigabit NAS RAID currently seems like the best idea to me but I was wondering if others have a thought

thanks

hi all-

so, i have some really nice 720X480 video (DV-NTSC) running
through jit.qt.movie (set for 720×480) and it looks good
in a jit.window on my display of 640X480, but as soon as i
move it (the jit.window) out to a second display (projector) at 640×480 resolution
it looks a little pixelated…

frame rates are good and system handles fine…what am i doing wrong?

ive checked the jitter appendix for optimizing performance, and i dont
think it addresses this specific issue, but i could be wrong…

Im on a MBP, 10.4.8 and 4.6/1.6.2

thanks in advance!

Brian

Sounds like the secondary monitor is actually set to a resolution
larger than 640×480. You can either change the monitor resolution to
be 640×480, or use jit.window @interp 1 to use linear interpolation
to smooth our the pixels as it upsamples.
