[filmscanners] Re: Onboard Graphics and Filmscanning



I use an onboard video card (8MB?) in an 800MHz Pentium 3, 512MB RAM PC. I
can't compare speeds to a 32MB video card but the speed of my editing is
fine. Maybe I don't appreciate the speed of a 32MB video card but I can't
imagine a huge difference when I manipulating 27MB (8 bit) or 55MB (16 bit)
images. Changes in PS7 are very quick, a fraction of a second usually.
Scanning is a different story but that has nothing to do with the video card.
