    GPU Accelerated Playback of DNxHR Media

    Premiere Pro uses GPU accelartion (CUDA) to playback media. Does Avid use GPU acceleration as well? Or only CPU to playback DNxHR media?

    Thank you,

    This is a bit of a grey area.

    MC seems to use GPU for some rendering and effects work but not for playback.

    The CUDA question has been an issue for quite some time. Hopefully this is the year for CUDA in AVID. Someone threw an unauthorized publication on my doorstep but a very interesting read! Big Smile

    Thank you,

    Just install GPUz and take a look for yourself, on my own system I have up to 70 % GPU Usage ( as well as 40 - 80 % CPU usage ) when playing out unrendered effects , both with DNxHR and DNxHD media .

    But a rather easy thing to check

    yes unrendered effects can lever GPU resources to be rendered on the fly during playback.

    But what many users want is GPU rssources for generic playback rather than pure CPU.
