As far as I know, Encore is still 32bit due to the licensed Roxio components, and therefore does not have the 64bit hardware MPE code from Premiere
But EN is using AME to transcode, right? Does AME use MPE hardware rendering?

(Of course, when you send something from Premiere Pro to AME, the part that is done within Premiere Pro can be CUDA-accelerated, but Adobe Media Encoder itself doesn't use such acceleration.)
We knew way ahead of time that Premiere CS5 was going to be 64bit.
Is Encore heading towards 64bit too ?
Anything that makes encoding faster would be good.

Sorry, but I can't comment on that right now. I hope that you know that as soon as we're able to talk about such things, we will.
Even worse, Adobe Media Encoder isn't even multi-threaded, at least in its encoding.
One would hope that because its core processing is hobbled by being a single-threaded design that AME would process the independent files in the queue in parallel. But as Todd says: "No" applies here too.
And you can't even start more than one instance of Adobe Media Encoder to render different source files in parallel. It won't let you start more than one instance.
Adobe Media Encoder simply won't let you use the 8 CPUs you have in your i7 processor at all. As I found out his week trying to work around a Premiere bug, six or seven of your 8 CPUs just sit there idling, while Adobe Media Encoder rendering takes hours and hours.
What a shame. It's difficult for me to associate Adobe Media Encoder with the word 'accelerated' in any way.
AME on my dual quad-core system pegs all 8 cores whenever it needs them. And that's independent of CUDA.

Todd said he couldn't comment... and I have to wonder if, as well as Adobe's general policy of not commenting on plans, this is also because the actual burning code is licensed from Roxio, and therefore Adobe can't make a 64bit Encore until Roxio updates their code???
I'm sure that if/when this happens, Todd will tell us as soon as the veil of secrecy is lifted
Actually, I'm sure that what a lot of people would like to see is better error reporting out of the Roxio modules to Encore, so Encore could give a better error report when something goes wrong

It uses all 8 of mine whenever it can with CS4. (Applying a Magic Bullet Looks effect is sort of a brake on that idea, but otherwise all 8 threads get used.)
