nope, I just stretched Premiere across both screens.

the reason the timeline doesn't line up is because I am running 2 different resolutions 1680x1050 on the left screen and 1440x900 on the right screen, 20" LG and 19" LG.

now im jealous...gotta be your killer graphics card??? did you see post 60 about the win 7 drivers? I forwarded it to NLE, they say it sounds feasable and to bring my machine in to install the ATi graphics card, but, that doesn't explain why yours works and mine doesnt.
is your card new? like post win 7 ultimate release?

If I have time tonight, I may swing over to my friends place and test his machine, he has an 84 or 8600 series NVidia card and a spare 19" screen and see if his does the same as mine or the same as yours. His machine is similar to both of ours too, Quad core intel, Asus mobo, nvidia card, 8GB ram, win 7 64bit, CS4 suite

I did see post 60 but I don't think you need to toss more money at the machine that is not guaranteed to work.

I'm putting together a video myself (good thinking you) i'll post the link and you can check for yourself exactly what this beast will and wont do, when I call up my standard old 'workspace' customized by me when i had xp where i have my program monitor on the right and my source monitor on the left all i get when i click play on the program monitor (right) i only get audio and a view of my desktop where the video is supposed to be.
I'm thinking I'll upload the video to 'SendSpace' it's a file transfer service I use for large video files where you can click to download the vid instead of posting it on my youtube page.

Please, Zepher, can you tell me if premiere cs4 is accelerated by the gtx285? Do you use some plugin to activate it or it is working by default? I bought HD5870 and i7 920 and ati stream encoder works only with amd cpu. Now, I have to sell my hd5870 to buy gtx285, but I didn't find any concludent review if I need only the gtx285 or i have to search for any programs or plugins. Thanks a lot I please excuse me for offtopic.

20" and 19" LG monitors, Premiere CS4, Win 7 64bit, GTX 285 and Premiere works fine across both screens, so I am not sure what your NLE Vendor means when they say it doesn't work.

MusicUCanSee, did you ever get your issue resolved? I just upgraded to CS5 and added another screen, so now I have the GTX285 running the middle screen and a 9600GT running the side screens.

CS5 uses the GPU for acceleration on the timeline as well as encoding the files, which is pretty nifty.
Going to do some render tests this weekend with footage from a Canon 7D that a friend shot for his documentary.





I can move the Program or Preview monitors across all the screens while the video is playing with no glitching or anything.

adoase: Premiere CS4 doesn't have any sort of GPU Acceleration built in. You have the option of using a 3rd party card like the Matrox RT.X2 to Accelerate real-time effects and encode DVD Compliant Mpeg-2 video streams, but a fast CPU like your i7 920 may render faster than the Matrox for encoding.
And right now the only supported non-Quadro card for Premiere CS5 is the GTX285.

Laptop monitor dilema. Is it the monitor or the intigrated video card.
I didn't know if I should have put this in the general discussion page or the video card page but here it is. :D My laptop has been acting up today. I would open the lid and it would have strange colors. For example blues would be a strange red color. But it would automatically fix itself and...
