CUDA is good at some things, like filters, but not at things like file compression, disk IO, or redrawing the display (which is best left to OpenGL).
Also, CUDA only works on a subset of one manufacturer's GPUs - making it of use only to people with the latest high end video cards.

You might be better off telling us what part of your workflow is holding you back, and let the engineers work on finding the best solution.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Premiere Elements: CUDA support.

I suggest to make Premiere Elements faster by using CUDA support. Because even users of Premiere Elements want to speed up their renderings. 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 investing lot of time, which I do not have ...

So if there's a change to integrate GPU rendering support to Premiere Elements, this would be a big step forward. I guess there are more people like me that won't buy Pro because it's too complex but want faster renderings ;))

Thanks for that in advance and kind regards!

Nothing new - CUDA support in Premiere Elements. I Have E13, and am really dissapointed that it does not have it. Would have choosen the Sony If I only new.

I used to work with Premiere Elements 4 and 7 and Powerdirector but took the step back to Premiere Elements with version 13.

Why does PE doesn't support hardware encoding while for instance Powerdirector does?

I dont understand it either, it's more ore less like:

me: look at my hi-end laptop - It has this awesome GPU with 4GB RAM
Adobe PE13: no, You're not
me: yes, it can even play "The Witcher"
Adobe PE13: You're not going to use Your cuda with me anyway
me: why
Adobe PE13: becouse I said so
