Increasing Performance in Premiere Pro CS6

In this short video, I’ll give you a few tips on increasing your performance in Premiere Pro CS6 with the latest 2012 technology from Intel SSD’s , XEON ES Processors, and NVIDIA’s TESLA 2050 boards as well as the new HP Z820 dual 8 Core processors for 32 Threads of raw power.

For MacBook Pro users there are few tips with SSDs and Thunderbolt as well. The performance tests I’m seeing in my lab have been truly remarkable. I’ll be working on several more videos on increasing performance for Pro Video workflows in various Windows and Mac computers. – stay tuned.

** I should point out that in the video I mention the Telsa 2750 board when in fact it’s the 2075 board – sorry for the confusion….

Intro to Premiere Pro, Prelude, and Encore CS6 & Mercury Transmit I/O

Just the first of several videos I’m working on to show off a few of my favorite new features of Premiere Pro CS6. This Transmit feature is a feature we’ve been working on for a quite a while to make it easier to integrate 3rd party hardware from partners like AJA, BlackMagic, Matrox, BlueFish and more. This new API basically puts the control of the output/monitoring on the “Adobe Side” of the equation . No more need for special Presets for each 3rd party card or special editing modes.

The driver development for the 3rd party is also much easier as they no longer have to write special sequence playback modules . The biggest feature that Transmit bigs to the user is the ability for the 3rd party hardware to take full advantage of the Adobe Mercury Playback engine whether it’s a supported Cuda, OpenCL, or software only configuration.
