Chapter

Installing Your Matrox RT.X2 Hardware
This chapter describes how to
install your Matrox RT.X2 card.
6
Before you install your Matrox RT.X2 card
Read the following information carefully before attempting to install your
Matrox RT.X2 card in your computer system.
Start with a functioning system
Before attempting any Matrox RT.X2 installation, you should have a computer
system with Windows XP Professional fully installed and functioning smoothly.
This will avoid potential problems later on.
Avoid costly damage
Static electricity from your body can damage your Matrox RT.X2 card or your
computer. Although you may not notice it, static electricity is generated every
time you move. It’s often too small to cause a spark, but it can still cause damage
to sensitive electronic components or at least reduce their lifespan.
To avoid damage, please observe the following precautions:
• Do not remove your Matrox RT.X2 card from its antistatic bag until you’re
ready to install it. Before removing the card, place the package within easy
reach of the area where you intend to perform the installation.
• You should avoid touching the chips and other components on the circuit
board. Try to handle the card by its edges.
• Try to work in an area where the relative humidity is at least 50%.
• Do not wear wool or synthetic clothing. These fabrics tend to generate more
static electricity than cotton, which is best for this kind of work.
• Turn off the power switches on your computer and its connected
components.
Once you’ve opened your computer, drain static electricity from your body by
touching a bare metal surface on your computer chassis before you install or
remove any parts of your system. If you have a grounding wrist strap, use it while
handling and installing any components in your computer.
Providing adequate ventilation
Because your Matrox RT.X2 card produces a significant amount of heat, forced
air ventilation is extremely important. Inadequate ventilation may result in erratic
operating behavior.
¦ Note Your Matrox RT.X2 card is equipped with a temperature sensor to let you
monitor the operating temperature of your Matrox RT.X2 system. This
temperature is displayed in the Matrox X.info program. For details, see the
chapter “Monitoring Your Matrox RT.X2 System” in your Matrox RT.X2 User
Guide.
Chapter 2, Installing Your Matrox RT.X2 Hardware
7
To provide as much airflow as possible over the card, it’s recommended that you
install a fan as explained below:
• Position a fan directly facing the back of the Matrox RT.X2 card. You should
make sure the fan directs air over the card. When installed, this fan works in
conjunction with your PC exhaust fan (located at the back of the PC case) to
blow warmed air away from your RT.X2 card.
Airflow
• Choose a fan that has a minimum rating of 40 CFM (CFM stands for cubic
feet of air displaced per minute and is a measurement standard for fans). An
example of a fan that meets this requirement well is the Sunon model
KD1208PTB1, which is a 12 VDC fan with a rating of 42.5 CFM.
• Make sure to mount the fan as close to the card as possible. In most systems,
you should be able to place the fan directly behind the card guide slots.
• Make sure to close your computer’s cover once you’ve finished installing
your hardware. This ensures that the airflow generated by the fan is directed
over the card and does not escape through the top of your system.
²Caution Fan installation should be done by a qualified technician. Improper
installation procedures can result in damage to your RT.X2 components and/or
your computer system. Matrox Electronic Systems Ltd. is not responsible for any
damage caused by faulty installation.
Before you install your Matrox RT.X2 card
8
Format your A/V drives using NTFS
Your A/V drives must be formatted using NTFS for use with Matrox RT.X2
because NTFS overcomes FAT32 file size limitations. When a hard drive is
formatted using FAT32, files saved to this drive cannot exceed 4 gigabytes in
size. This translates to approximately 20 minutes of DV/DVCAM video, which
poses a serious limitation to a nonlinear editing platform like your Matrox RT.X2
system.
With NTFS, you also have the option of creating a striped volume, which consists
of multiple hard drives formatted as a single partition. This allows you to work
with multiple drives as a single large drive, which offers more disk space and
enhances hard drive performance. NTFS also provides better audio and video
synchronization than FAT32 when you play back your clips.
If you already have Windows installed on your computer, you can check the
format of your drives. In Windows Explorer, right-click the drive letter (such as
D:), then choose Properties. Under General, check the format of your drive
next to File system.
If you need to format a drive using NTFS, right-click My Computer, then
choose Manage. Under Computer Management > Storage, select Disk
Management. In the Disk Management utility, right-click the appropriate
drive and choose Format. In the provided dialog box, specify a volume label for
the partition you are creating. From the File System list, select NTFS. Leave the
Allocation unit size at Default. Do not select the Enable file and folder
compression option. If you are formatting the drive for the first time, do not
select the Perform a quick format option either.
¡ Important
All information on the designated drive will be lost.
For more information on how to format your storage devices using NTFS, see
your Windows documentation.
Disk defragmentation
It’s important to make sure that your storage does not become too fragmented.
Overly fragmented drives will lead to a major reduction in your system’s
performance, which will in turn seriously reduce Matrox RT.X2’s ability to work
properly.
¡ Important To ensure that your storage is operating at optimal levels,
defragment your hard drives regularly (daily or several times a week).
For information on how to defragment your storage devices, see your Windows
documentation.

About the PCI retainer bracket
Many computers contain card guides at the front end of the computer chassis.
These help to stabilize cards. If your RT.X2 card is equipped with a PCI retainer
bracket, the following diagram depicts the retainer bracket’s use:
RT.X2 card
Card guide
PCI retainer bracket
With some computer models, you may have to remove the PCI retainer bracket.
In such a case, once you’ve drained static electricity from your body and removed
the RT.X2 card from its antistatic bag (see “Before you install your Matrox
RT.X2 card” on page 6), simply remove the screws holding the bracket in place
and then carefully remove the bracket.
Preparing the internal power supply cable on
your RT.X2 card
Your RT.X2 card must be powered by your computer’s internal power supply by
way of the internal power supply cable. The female end of the internal power
supply cable is connected to the internal power supply connector on the RT.X2
card at the factory. If for any reason the internal power supply cable is not
connected to the RT.X2 card, connect it as follows:

Installing Your Matrox RT.X2 Software
This chapter explains how to
install the software required to
use your Matrox RT.X2 system.
22
Overview of the software installation
Once you’ve installed your Matrox RT.X2 hardware and properly connected your
devices, you can proceed with the software installation. This includes installing
Adobe Premiere Pro and Matrox Mx.tools. Matrox Mx.tools installs the drivers
for your Matrox RT.X2 hardware and the Matrox realtime plug-in for Adobe
Premiere Pro.
Hardware detection
Turn on your computer. Once Windows restarts, the “Found New Hardware
Wizard” detects your Matrox RT.X2 hardware. Because the Matrox Mx.tools
Setup program will automatically detect your devices and install the appropriate
drivers, simply press ESC or click Cancel to close the “Found New Hardware
Wizard.”
¡ Important The “Found New Hardware Wizard” will appear for each of your
RT.X2 hardware components. Make sure that you close the “Found New
Hardware Wizard” each time it appears. To ensure a smooth Matrox RT.X2
software installation, it is essential that you do not let the “Found New Hardware
Wizard” try to install any drivers.
The “Found New Hardware Wizard” will only appear the first time you start your
computer after installing your RT.X2 hardware.
Installing Adobe Premiere Pro
You must install Adobe Premiere Pro before installing Matrox Mx.tools.
¡ Important You must install Adobe Premiere Pro and Matrox Mx.tools on an
NTSF-formatted drive (usually your system drive).
° To install Adobe Premiere Pro:
1 Close all Windows programs.
2 Insert the Adobe Premiere Pro installation DVD in your DVD-ROM drive.
3 From the displayed menu, choose to install Adobe Premiere Pro. When the
setup program starts, follow the onscreen instructions.
¦ Note When you install Matrox Mx.tools, Matrox plug-in files will be added to
your Adobe Premiere Pro’s Plug-ins folder on your hard drive. Therefore, if you
later re-install Adobe Premiere Pro to a different directory, you’ll need to
uninstall and re-install Matrox Mx.tools.
Chapter 4, Installing Your Matrox RT.X2 Software
23
Installing other third-party programs
There are a number of programs for which you can choose to install a Matrox
WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) plug-in that lets you see your work
directly on your video monitor. For example, the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in for
Adobe After Effects lets you display the contents of your composition on your
video monitor to see the exact color temperature, safe-title area, and any
interlaced artifacts as you work. The following programs are supported:
• Adobe After Effects (version 5.0 or later).
• Adobe Photoshop (version 7.0 or later).
• Autodesk 3ds Max (version 7.0 or later).
• Autodesk Combustion (version 4 or later).
• eyeon Fusion (version 4 or later).
• NewTek LightWave 3D (version 7.5 or later).
If you have any of these programs, you should install them now so that you’ll be
able to install the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in for them when you install Matrox
Mx.tools. You can, however, install the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in for a
program at any time after installing Mx.tools as explained in the section
“Installing additional Matrox WYSIWYG plug-ins or removing unneeded
plug-ins” on page 25.
¦ Note When you install the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in for a program, Matrox
plug-in files will be added to a folder for that program on your hard drive.
Therefore, if you later re-install the program to a different folder, you’ll need to
also re-install the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in.
Installing other third-party programs
24
Installing Matrox Mx.tools
1 Insert your Matrox Mx.tools installation DVD in your DVD-ROM drive.
Windows automatically starts the Matrox RT.X2 menu.
2 From the Matrox RT.X2 menu, choose Install Matrox Mx.tools.
3 If your Matrox RT.X2 card needs a firmware update, the updater will be
launched automatically at this point. Once completed, the Mx.tools
installation will continue.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to install Matrox Mx.tools on your
computer. You’ll be prompted to install the Matrox effect patterns (GFX
files) for selected video formats. For example, you can choose to install the
SD NTSC and HDV 1080 patterns only. You’ll also be prompted to install
the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-ins for any supported programs that are
currently installed on your system.
¦ Note Some versions of LightWave 3D may not be automatically detected
by the Setup program. If this happens, click Browse to select the folder where
you installed LightWave 3D.
5 If required, the Setup program will restart your computer when you click
OK.
Chapter 4, Installing Your Matrox RT.X2 Software
25
Adding the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in to
NewTek LightWave 3D
When you install the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in for NewTek LightWave 3D, the
plug-in is copied to your hard drive. You must then add the plug-in to NewTek
LightWave 3D as follows:
1 Start NewTek LightWave 3D.
2 Choose Layout > Plug-ins > Add Plug-ins.
3 Open the Input-Output folder or the folder where you chose to install the
Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in, and double-click the mvelwpreview.p file.
4 Click the OK button in the Add Plug-ins dialog box.
Installing additional Matrox effect patterns or
removing unneeded patterns
When you install Matrox Mx.tools, you are asked to select the video formats for
which you want to install the Matrox effect patterns (GFX files). If after you’ve
installed Matrox Mx.tools you find that you need to install patterns for additional
video formats or remove patterns for formats that you no longer use, you can run
the Matrox Effect Patterns Setup program by choosing Install Matrox effect
patterns from the Matrox RT.X2 menu. You’ll be prompted to select the video
formats for which you want to install the Matrox effect patterns, and clear the
selections for currently installed patterns that you want to be removed.
Installing additional Matrox WYSIWYG plug-ins
or removing unneeded plug-ins
When you install Matrox Mx.tools, you are prompted to install the Matrox
WYSIWYG plug-ins for any supported programs that are currently installed on
your system. If after you’ve installed Matrox Mx.tools you want to install
additional Matrox WYSIWYG plug-ins, or re-install or remove a currently
installed plug-in, you can run the Matrox WYSIWYG Plug-ins Setup program by
choosing Install Matrox WYSIWYG Plug-ins from the Matrox RT.X2 menu.
You’ll be prompted to specify which plug-ins you want to install, re-install, or
remove. For information about using these plug-ins, see the chapter “Using the
Matrox WYSIWYG Plug-ins” in your Matrox RT.X2 User Guide.
¦ Note To install the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in for a program, you must first
install that program.
Adding the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-in to NewTek LightWave 3D
26
Installing the Matrox VFW software codecs on
a system without the RT.X2 hardware
The Matrox VFW software codecs let you render (compile) and play back
RT.X2-compatible .avi files in your Video for Windows programs without having
the Matrox RT.X2 hardware installed in your computer.
Remarks
• If you have the Matrox RT.X2 hardware, you do not need to install the VFW
software codecs because Matrox Mx.tools installs all the required Matrox
codecs on your system.
• If you have a previous version of the Matrox VFW software codecs that was
provided with another Matrox product (such as Matrox DigiSuite or Matrox
RT.X100), you must remove those codecs from your computer using Add or
Remove Programs in Windows Control Panel before installing the VFW
software codecs provided with Matrox RT.X2.
° To install the Matrox VFW software codecs:
1 From the Matrox RT.X2 menu, choose Install Matrox VFW software
codecs.
2 Follow the onscreen instructions. An information box indicates when the
installation is complete.
Removing your Matrox RT.X2 software
You can remove the various Matrox RT.X2 software components as follows:
• To remove Matrox Mx.tools from your computer, choose Start > All
Programs > Matrox Mx.tools > Uninstall Matrox Mx.tools. You can
also choose Uninstall Matrox Mx.tools from the Matrox RT.X2 menu.
• To remove only the Matrox effect patterns from your computer, choose
Start > All Programs > Matrox Mx.tools > Uninstall Matrox Effect
Patterns. You should not remove only the Matrox effect patterns unless
you’ll be re-installing Matrox Mx.tools.
• To remove only the Matrox WYSIWYG plug-ins from your computer,
choose Start > All Programs > Matrox Mx.tools > Uninstall Matrox
WYSIWYG Plug-ins.
• To remove the Matrox VFW software codecs from a computer without the
Matrox RT.X2 hardware, use Add or Remove Programs in Windows
Control Panel.
