I've got a g5 dual 2ghz 2gig ram running max 5 etc. Any suggestions regarding increased performance in jitter? Specifically I'm grabbing video from 2 cameras via 2 separate 1394a busses (unibraine fire i 640*480 uncompressed, not dv). I'm not doing any reading or writing to disk... it's all video processing to trigger midi. So its all cpu. If I put in more ram, would that conceivably increase frame rate??
At the moment it's pretty sluggish (one major factor is that openGL calls get referred back to the cpu rather than being processed on the video card as I have to do other post-openGL matrix processing and apparently mac os x won't allow this to be done on the card).
or should i get a faster computer (would prefer not to for economic reasons)? How much faster would the frame rate be on an intel mac-- any experience in this regard out there?
any advice Ta muchly
