Video Card?  

In the panorama field, hardware is also part of the success. You can discuss here about it: camera, computer, pano head, anything

Video Card?

by C.J » Tue Jul 28, 2009 6:28 pm

The computer I use at work is a quad core with the ram maxed out (32bit, so under 4 gig)....but the computer was built without a video card, just the onboard one which is a nvidia 256 mb (shared).

Is the addition of a better video card something that would improve the performance and speed of autopano giga ?

Oh! A dedicated GPU is something amazing! You'll get real time panorama editing, 100% real image zoom and and and... ok I'll go cool off now :D It won't speed up the rendering, but having the ability to move and rotate the panorama, change projections and color anchors in real time is amazing time saver!

Just get a decent recent GPU, like 9800GT or something similar.

Hi C.J......
Well I suggest you to go for "PNY Geforce GTX 260 Video Card" which I purchased before few months.The outputs are good with good quality of video processing.I purchased it in worth $154.99.If your budget makes you to buy then this will be the good selection.Have a nice selection.

I would go for a 64 OS with 64bit software and get a "SINGLE" 2gb video card for the job. Palit 285 gtx 2gb is a decent choice and a decent price as well. Large images like lots of gpu storage and I find it much faster to work with really large panos. 200 images is a breeze.
