Speed Up Premiere Pro

Every video editor wants Adobe Premiere Pro to perform in the best possible way. You’ll save time with plugins that render lightning fast. The Essential Collection of video transitions are compatible with all major GPU technologies. Our plugins have full support for CUDA, OpenCL, and Apple Metal. Our advice to speed up Premiere Pro:

  1. Make sure your graphic card drivers are up-to-date
  2. Use plugins that have support for the GPU technology that you use (e.g. CUDA, OpenCL, Apple Metal)
  3. Use effects in the Premiere Pro library with the ‘Accelerated’ Badge
  4. Ideally the effects, once applied to your clips, stay yellow.

If you want Adobe Premiere Pro to perform well, you’ll need plugins that have support for GPU technologies listed above. You want to have effects (like the Essentials Collection) that talk to Premiere Pro via the Mercury Playback Engine. Get lower your export times and better playback with the best transitions for Premiere Pro.

Mercury Playback Engine

The Mercury Playback Engine by Adobe is the name for all accelerations implemented to gain better performance for playback and export. It’s designed to take on every major graphics card manufacturer (Nvidia, ATI/AMD, Intel). Some GPU technologies are compatible across platforms (E.g. OpenCL), some are available only to a certain brand (E.g. CUDA is only available on Nvidia Cards). Other technologies are only available on a certain Operating System (E.g. Metal is only available on the Apple OSX platform). You will likely only be using just one technology depending on your OS and your graphics card. For high-quality software and plugins to be compatible with every kind of graphics hardware, they need to implement all technologies. That’s our job:~)
