You cannot use Hardware acceleration( CUDA or OPEN CL) in Premiere elements.
This is a feature in Premiere Pro.
Moving to Premeire Elements forums
"NVIDIA and CUDA" is a Premiere Pro matter and does not apply to Premiere Elements (any version).
Premiere Elements (any version) cannot take advantage of the NVIDIA CUDA cards. Premiere Pro CS6 does.
Please check out the following Adobe document about Premiere Elements support for GPU cards.
With card driver updates there are no guarantees as I see it, just probabilities.
I find this decision not appropriate!
Even users of Premiere Elements want to speed up their rendering.
For my behalf, I would buy Premiere Pro to get GPU support, but Pro is way too complicate for me – and I don't need any of the other features of Pro. I tried the 30 days demo version: no way to change from Premiere easily without investion lots of time, which I do not have ...
So if there's a change to escalate this topic (meaning CUDA support for Premiere Elements) to the management, I really would appreciate that very much! Maybe it will help one day if enough users ask for it
Thanks for that in advance and kind regards!

If not, my thought on the matter is the your message was not lost since it did get looked at by Adobe Staff who posted in your thread,
GautamBahl and Sandeep Singh.
Hope all is going well with your projects.
I don't think so, because afaik Premiere doesn't belong to the Photoshop family ...
Sorry, you were right! Got it! Thanks!
Does Premiere Elements 12 use CUDA? Which NVIDIA-GPU does it support?
I am a confessed fan of Premier Elements, starting with 9 and now on 11. I skipped 12 as I didn't see enough compelling reasons to upgrade.
For CUDA support, I've read that the other mainstream consumer video editing system from Sony does have it. It also has a few other features, such as stabilization, that are said to work better. I've not done it yet, but I'm tempeted to download a trial of Sony Home Studio 13 and see what it does to speed things up.
Any news that Elements 13 might have the cuda support? A pity that I've read about this after I bought E13. i was sure that it will have the cuda support.
It has been many months since I said I would try Sony's product with the CUDA. I did! It was not faster and it was harder to use. I gave up on it. Premier Elements seemed faster whether it used CUDA or not.
Why do you care if it uses CUDA?
There is no version of Premiere Elements that supports CUDA, including the latest version of 14, just released.
However, for Premiere Elements 13/13.1 and 14, there is Hardware Acceleration for rendering, playback, and rendering if your computer uses an Intel HD Graphics 2000 and higher video card/graphics card and you have the preference for it enabled in preferences. Please refer to
I have not yet seen studies quantifying faster versus the same with this feature.
And if you have the preference enabled and you do not have an Intel HD Graphics 2000 or higher card, you can get into problems with the export features of the program.
