    Confused about CUDA

    Am_I_Lame? Level 1

      My impression is that Premiere Pro CS5 x64 uses CUDA to accelerate rendering certain effects during preview (as well as the preview itself if there are no effects) using the Mercury playback engine, but does not use CUDA when rendering to final output.  I.e., Media Encoder doesn't use CUDA.  Is that accurate?  If so, it seems awfully unclear, even in articles (like the recent CUDA showdown on Toms Hardware) that attempt to clarify what CUDA can and can't do for CS5.  Thanks.
