Isadora 2.0 - 1920x1080 H264 x 4 -- Performance Test

  • Dear Users,

    Thought you might like to see this clip showing Isadora 2.0 in action. Here I am playing four separate 1920x1080 H264 clips on a mini Mac i7 with a standard 5400 RPM drive. (There are actually four separate files, even though the content is the same.) I'm getting a full 30fps and 235 cycles.
    Performance with the same four clips in version 1.3 is about 3fps. So it's a pretty massive improvement.
    *Please forgive the quality of the video recording! I grabbed this quickly this morning with my little point-n-shoot camera...)
    Best Wishes,

    I can confirm that, just tested with my Retina MacBook Pro even eight separate .h264 HD movies with solid 30fps.

    What is it like with 4 or move different movies?

  • Dear @Skulpture,

    There were four separate clips on the disk So -- while the image was the same -- there were four streams of video playing from four separate files. Performance wise, using four different clips should give the same results.
