Fortunately these applications can dynamically share memory in Creative Suite 5. One of the most significant advances available only in Premiere Pro CS5 is the Mercury playback engine and for this you must use an Nvidia graphics card. At these early stages we get different reports and I’m sure Nvidia is responding to the community but initially the requirement was Nvidia Quadro series card which we associate with work stations only.
I’m already seeing other reports that suggest the GeForce, any ‘Cuda’ enabled Nvidia card will support the Mercury Playback Engine ( MPE ). This is very important. For all your resources, expensive processor, mountains of memory, the MPE is the special software that allows Premiere Pro to offload much of the graphic processing to the Nvidia GPU. It relieves the main processor while having the graphics tasks handled exclusively by the Graphics Processing Unit on the Nvidia card.our website
More simply, expect to see your rendering time cut by 10 to 20 fold. Also notice on your Premiere Pro timeline the yellow highlight indicating that the Nvidia card is rendering your video on the fly in ‘real time’. The world of video editing is constantly changing, and you have to be in touch with it. You need to spend your time learning new ideas and concepts, and upgrading the ones you have. But as of now, you are good to go. Welcome into the world of video editing!! Now keep in mind that you don’t have to have these professional video editing softwares to be able to do some good job. Even the light duty one you have can take you places.
