    If I turned off the Matrox presets when beginning a Premiere project,
    and left them like that, would there by ANY Premiere Pro features that
    I couldn't use? Basically, this would mean that I bought the board
    just to get analog capture and the bundled software. Does anyone know
    if the capture part works if the Matrox presets are turn off?

  2. What features of Premiere are there that do not have a Matrox counterpart?

    It's my (newbie) understanding that (1) voiceover and (2) viewing of
    the safe margins during preview, are Premiere features that can't be
    used when the Matrox project presets named "Matrox DV and DVCam" are

  4. Have you actually tried the voiceover function to see whether or not it
    works? I have several real-time cards here by various manufacturers and they
    all work just fine using their loaded presets and the Premiere voiceover
    function. Give it a whirl. The worst that can happen is a Premiere crash and
    that won't harm anything.

    I have brought your question to Matrox and a number of other "experts" who
    also say it won't do it. The problem is none of them have actually tried it,
    even Matrox support has not. For all the many system we have built and
    shipped having the RT.X100 I have never tried it.

    It does seem funny that for all the things the Matrox card will do that the
    Canopus DVStorm would not do, the DVStorm can perform this function without
    a hitch. In fact so does my Canopus DVRexRT, which is an original model of
    the first ever real-time editing hardware card to hit the market.

    Come on, the guinea pig!

    well, the box that that Matrox came in, is still un-opened on my desk,
    because as you can guess, after I ordered it, I read that it can't do
    voiceovers, so I'm hitting the news groups trying to find out more
    about it in case I want to return it.

    Looks like I will keep it as it's the last product that bundles that
    many Adobe products, and there's a few work-arounds.

    Can I ask if you have any modern (still being sold) real-time cards,
    what models they are?
