First of all, really fantastic product! Truly opens up a new world. I can’t wait to use this, but I’m a bit worried about whether my Mac is able to render things properly. I’ve been playing around with Ebosuite for a couple of hours, and I’ve run into some problems with larger files.
What I want to do:
- I basically just want to render ISF’s on single video’s. There are some really cool ones, and if I can get them to play off audio inputs, I’m sure that would be amazing. Video’s can be short, and I don’t need multiple ISF’s playing at the same time.
- Possibly connect external video (smart phone, I guess only iPhone is an option right now?), to switch between a live feed and these shaders.
All in all nothing too crazy. One ISF at the time is enough, and I’m willing to compromise on the external video. The video & ISF does, however, have to play smoothly, and as I said this wasn’t the case yet.
My specs: MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017), 2,3 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 1536 MB.
EDIT: Some extra stats: CPU usage within Ableton stays very low (around 3-5% I think). However, Ebostudio itself gives over 70% when playing large (unconverted MP4) files. Converting (not too large) files to HAP makes a big difference. I’d still be interested in hearing other people’s thoughts on my specs, should this be able to do the job?
Thanks a lot!
