CS5 GPU acceleration for encoding?
The nVidia web site says GPU-accelerated encoding is possible for Blu-Ray, DVD and Flash formats:
However it appears the encoding itself is not accelerated, only the effects.
Does that make sense? Or is it possible a Quadro card can accelerate encoding itself, apart from effects?
If it’s only effects acceleration, why does nVidia specifically call out Blu-Ray, DVD and Flash formats? Wouldn’t GPU-accelerated effects benefit any format when encoding/exporting a sequence containing acceleratable effects?
