Thread: Premiere Pro MPE performance

  1. #1

    Default Premiere Pro MPE performance

    Hello all.

    If I told you that I can layer 43 different video sources at 1080P whilst adding colour correction, scaling some big some small, placing them all over the screen and adding in opacity keyframe transitions. Then a few wacky effects such as colour inversion, drop shadow, 3D tilt.
    Then what if I told you that all of this can playback in realtime on the timeline with zero dropped frames, On a laptop.

    Say hello to an Nvidia GPU and graphics acceleration in premiere pro! I have to add 10 FX filters of drop shadow onto all 40 tracks before Premiere decides "Can't cope, no more realtime playback"

    If your using MPE GPU acceleration in your work-flow, How has it best helped you out? When has it ever given up the ghost for you?

    Just curious to find out how other editors have found using it...

    I'm very impressed with your stats Mr P. I have no GPU acceleration with my set up and Sony Vegas so it's interesting for me to hear about this.

    I found this video that explains a bit more about Premiere and GPU acceleration.

    I'm glad that you found that video useful.

    I have additional information here, and in the resources that it points to:
