      Here are some Premiere Pro and Encore Tutorials... A mix of old (back to CS5) and new for CC

      .

      I use Windows, so there is almost nothing here for the Mac user

      .

      First, some general information on project and computer setup

      .

      Hardware page https://forums.adobe.com/community/premiere/hardware_forum
      CS6 page https://forums.adobe.com/community/premiere/premierepro_previous
      .

      For CS5 and CS6 (maybe later) the easy way to insure that your video and project match

      -See 2nd post for pictures of NEW ITEM process http://forums.adobe.com/message/3776153

      -And a FAQ on sequence setting http://forums.adobe.com/message/3804341

      .

      Not everything uses CUDA hardware acceleration... read this

      https://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/cuda-mercury-playback-engine-and-adobe-premiere-pro/

      New cards come out faster than Adobe can test and certify... if your card has 1Gig of video ram it should work... but do be aware that video drivers SOMETIMES cause problems, so you may need to update your video driver at the vendor site

      .

      Go to the vendor site to be sure you have an updated driver for your graphic adapter

      •nVidia Driver Downloads http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

      •ATI Driver https://www.amd.com/en/support

      There are also intermittent reports that the newest driver is not always the best driver due to driver bugs or compatibility issues, so you MAY need to try an earlier driver version

      .

      If your nVidia card has at least 1Gig of video ram, use the nVidia Hack http://forums.adobe.com/thread/629557 - which is a simple entry in a "supported cards" file, this is for CS6 and CS5, the file is not used by PPro Cloud

      -I did the hack for CS6 and my nVidia GTX760 to enable CUDA hardware acceleration

      .

      Download CS6 here if you have a serial number but lost your media
