Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, companies and their employees have shifted to working from home, or carefully isolated remote sites, so essential business operations can continue. This radical change is essential, and mastering the challenges of working from home has been a learning experience requiring significant flexibility and frequent adjustments to work and personal routines. Working from home has been hardest for professionals who require powerful workstations to deliver their projects. Some video editors have been forced to get creative with their footage and workstations to meet the growing demand for fresh content; a task that’s now been simplified thanks to NVIDIA® Quadro® RTX™ graphics solutions and Adobe’s recent Premiere Pro 14.2 software update.
Exporting 4K or 8K video quality is a time consuming and compute intensive process. Depending on your workstation configuration, file size, and video quality requirements, the amount of time you actually spend editing can be significantly impacted. This was simply an accepted workflow component and cost of doing business when working with video. Robust office workstations equipped with high-end GPUs and fast SSDs speed up the process, but workstations are not common in home office settings. Adobe’s latest Creative Cloud updates bring additional GPU acceleration to essential video editing and VFX workflow applications, enabling creative professionals to realistically realize projects by turning existing desktop (or deskside) home computers into “Professional PC” systems capable of offering near workstation performance.
The latest Adobe Premiere Pro 14.2 software update enables GPU (NVENC) hardware H.264 and H.265 encoding with NVIDIA Quadro RTX graphics boards. This dramatically accelerates – 2x to 5x faster – when exporting to these popular codecs with Premiere Pro and Media Encoder. A sequence that used to take 20 minutes to export now only requires around 5 minutes.
Additionally, video editing effects are now up to 14x faster. Adobe’s software update also utilizes NVIDIA Quadro RTX’s Tensor Cores to bring AI to the editing and effects process with technologies like DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), providing unprecedented rendering speed without any loss in visual quality.
Working from home certainly presents a variety of challenges. Editing workflows are no longer one of them. Now with NVIDIA Quadro RTX graphics boards accelerating Adobe Premiere Pro, and other professional video and cinema workflow production tools, video editors and VFX specialists can produce more innovative and imaginative content faster than ever before.
