do I even need a Matrox card?

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.matrox (More info?)

Okay, I don’t know too much about graphic cards and need some help
here. Currently I’m working on a dual Pentium 4 3.0GHz system (1GB
RAM) with a GeForce 6200 graphics card and use Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5
for editing. I capture using a Sony DSR-11 VTR through its firewire
out. I also use the same VTR and firefire to connect to a video
monitor for realtime previews. Now I want to get a second system but
not too sure whether a Matrox really is needed here. People tell me
that I MUST get at least a RTX100 Extreme Pro if I’m considering
editing, but I’ve been doing that without a Matrox and it seems to
work fine.

My question is where does the Matrox come in handy and am I
overlooking a very important aspect of video editing? And should I
just get a display card like the Parhalia or is a capture card an
absolute essential element of editing?

Any comments / suggestions? Anyone?

  2. Matrox comes in handy when you need to do real time image processing while capturing and displaying the video stream.
