The Mercury Playback Engine in Premiere Pro

All recent versions of Premiere Pro provide GPU acceleration through the Mercury Playback Engine. Most recent graphics cards are supported, while a “Software Only” setting remains available as a fallback for those days when the graphics hardware seems not to be cooperating.

On the Mac, Premiere Pro currently supports GPU acceleration via OpenCL or Metal, two of the most widely adopted graphics technologies on the platform. To view and change the current Mercury Playback Engine setting, look under the File menu for the Project → General command:

Premiere Pro Mercury Engline

GPU Acceleration options are available near the top of the Project Settings window, under the General → Video Rendering and Playback section:

FxFactory settings

OpenCL is the default setting on most configurations, as it currently provides the best balance between performance and compatibility with the widest variety of third-party products. If you are currently running macOS 10.12 Sierra, we recommend OpenCL as it happens to provide the best performance as well, i.e. the quickest renders.

Less time for coffee?

FxFactory 7 supports GPU acceleration through Metal as well. Metal is Apple’s newest graphics technology, and if your system is running macOS 10.13 High Sierra and Premiere Pro CC 2018, Metal will give you the best performance. Unfortunately, few other third-parties outside FxFactory support Metal GPU acceleration in Premiere Pro, and you may have to factor those other plugins into your decision. No matter what tools you depend on, either OpenCL or Metal will provide a great boost to your workflow. While we observed a 5-10% advantage of Metal over OpenCL on macOS 10.13 High Sierra, both GPU acceleration options are up to 10x faster than “Software Only”.

Does my Mac support Metal?

Most of our products become GPU accelerated in Premiere Pro simply by upgrading to FxFactory 7, at no extra cost. Some will demonstrate a more dramatic jump in performance than others, such as our Wipology transitions.

Mercury Engine GPU acceleration is supported on Premiere Pro CC 2017 version 11.1 or later. We highly recommend Premiere Pro CC 2018 as it provides better performance, better compatibility with macOS 10.13 High Sierra, and is is a free update for all Creative Cloud users.

Mercury GPU acceleration in After Effects

The most recent version of After Effects has allowed third-parties to tap into the GPU accelerated pipeline provided by the Mercury Engine. All graphics cards shipped by Apple in recent years are supported. FxFactory enables additional GPU acceleration for our plugins via both OpenCL and Metal.

Mercury GPU acceleration is enabled by default in After Effects. To switch graphics technology, look under the File menu for the Project Settings command:

fxfactory ae settings

GPU options are the very first available in the Project Settings window, under Video Rendering and Effects:

fxfactory ae render settings

We recommend that you choose Mercury GPU Acceleration (Metal) on all Macs running macOS 10.13 High Sierra or macOS 10.14 Mojave, as it provides the best performance. OpenCL currently provides the best balance between performance and compatibility for those still running macOS 10.12 Sierra.

Does my Mac support Metal?

Most of our products will take advantage of Mercury GPU acceleration in After Effects simply by upgrading to FxFactory 7.1, at no extra cost. After Effects CC 2019 version 16.0 or later is required.

It's a must have for Final Cut Pro

Seemingly limitless variety of effects. Works great in FCP and AE. Makes it easy to try out new products from other FXPlug vendors before purchasing.

Earns the Microfilmmaker Magazine's Award of Superiority

Noise Industries is truly setting the bar in plug-in management and versatility. While there are other plug-in producers and certainly other excellent products, the level of quality displayed by NI and their development partners in the FX Factory plug-in management software is definitely making Noise Industries the one to beat. Having personally used NI and their development partners products for several years now, the most impressive thing to me is the level of dedication that they expend towards making their users' lives easier. This means help files, tutorials, explanations and product usability.

Combined with reasonable pricing, it’s tough to go wrong. I fully recommend downloading the demos and taking it out for a spin. The only problem you’ll have is trying to fully explore the bounty of excellence at your fingertips within the 15 day trial period.
