Thread: GPU Acceleration?

  1. #1

    Default GPU Acceleration?

    hello,

    I have been using Sony Vegas, i need to render real time with multiple effects layered and even my gaming PC can't do it in good full quality setting. I have learned that for some odd reason Vegas doesn't even utilize the power of the GPU... I was wondering if their is a video editing program, or add on to Vegas, which utilizes the GPU ( i have a 8800GT so thats an asset that shouldn't be sitting around doing nothing).

    Thank you,
    Wholegrainhunta

    " PC cant do it " - course it can - what do you mean ?

    GPUs - "... some odd reason.. " - editors dont use the GPU for rendering.

    Rendering always takes time. The best you ever get is about real time - but start to edit with lots of tracks / fx and or in HDV and times can easily become longer - 100 times real time easy. I rendered something a while back that was very complex - 8.5 hours for one minute...
