    Premiere Elements 13 GPU support and 64-bit performace?

    Luxius

      Hi,

      I use PRE PRE 11 that doesn't suport GPU hardware acceleration ( CUDA or OPEN GL) Is GPU-assisted rendering enable in new Premiere Element 13 or still not?

       

       

      Additionally... I can't see a diference in operating, better performace or faster rendering proces on my machine with Windows 8/64  between PRE v.11 and v.13 although the second one is 64-bit native aplication. Why is that?

          GPU-assisted rendering is not a feature of Premiere Elements 13.

           

          Premiere Elements is a pretty efficient program that tends not to grab a lot of RAM, where you'd see your biggest performance boost in 64-bit. But the 64-bit architecture does give it room to grow.

           

          Meantime, remember that performance is a combination of several factors, including, most importantly:

          * The speed of your processor

          * The format, resolution and codec of your source video

          * The length of your project and/or the individual clips that make up that project

          * Ho much RAM you have, particularly between 4 and 8 gigs

          * Your Premiere Elements project settings and how closely they match your source video

          * How many effects, titles and other non-rendered items you add to your movie

            My computer has a GPU and I have been disappointed that PrE does not seem to take advantage of it.  For an experiment I bought a competitive video editor that does have GPU use options.  I put a batch of clips into both and was amazed to see no significant difference in performance.

              That's interesting, Bill!

               

              My guess would be that, unless you're working on a really high-end video, GPU rendering and 64-bit architecture with tons of RAM aren't going to make huge differences in your editing performance. Not nearly as much a difference as a good, fast processor anyway.

               

              I dropped a new power supply and high end graphics card into my computer last year and it really had no noticeable effect on my AVCHD video editing. But boy could I feel the difference when I started doing effects editing in After Effects and HitFilm!
