Actually, the software would probably work on other GPUs, too. Maybe not as fast since most laptops besides those have crappy graphics.

both of my C pillars had the liner fall off exactly like that
held up by the light mounting
i eventually glued the fabric back on to the pillars so that they don't flap around ... but it ain't pretty

a friend suggested redoing my head liner and pillars with black suede (zhp-like) .. but too lazy for that non-sense

I have to be honest - I get a good laugh at people that take video on groomers. It's like taking video of someone going for a walk.

it was more to just try it out
i have some footage on steeper runs ... but they're not worth uploading since there's too much gap between me and other people
so all you see is a lot of snow and trees

If you do it, use some quality material or it'll look purple.

also another reason why i didn't bother uploading the other videos was because of the wind noise
the wind noise was really annoying... and prior to putting music on the video through premiere today, i did not know how to edit the sound on a video file

Several people. Mostly the other surfaces, though. It fades in the sun.
