Open GL for my GFX card
show user profile  geoffneck
Hi all, I'm currently using a DirectX9 card for Max, ProEngineer, Premiere, after effects...

I really struggling in ProE, Premiere and after effects with speed and display. Recommended specs suggext they use a GFX card that uses Open GL2. I'm familiar with the Workstation cards Quadro FX and Fire GL, but the money scares me.

I've always been ATi for some time now, but notice the Geforce Cards have DX10 and Open GL2.1

Are any of you using the progs listed above, and experiencing good performance using a Geforce? Im mainly interested in the performance for After effects and Premiere when rendering direct from the timeline!!!

OpenGL ONLY helps in AfterEffects with regard to its 3D functions,...referring to the positioning and lighting of 'planes' in AE (its version of 3D which is really 2.5D)......and ONLY with regard to viewport manipulation.

So if you do not do alot of heavy major 3D comps in AE you will not benefit from the OGL.
Either way,...the OGL will not help with rendering in AE.
