AMD on Friday announced its collaboration with Adobe to deliver OpenCL hardware-accelerated video editing for the first time on the Microsoft Windows platform with the next version of Adobe Premiere Pro.
The next version of Adobe Premiere Pro has been optimized to take advantage of a wider range of AMD professional- and consumer-class graphics processing units (GPUs) and accelerated processing units (APUs), delivering real-time editing with formats from DV to HD and 4K Ultra HD at high frame rates. Now Adobe and AMD extend this advanced OpenCL functionality to professionals running the Windows operating system. The expanded support on Windows and OSX complements the already Mac OSX OpenCL support available on Adobe Premiere Pro.
The next version of Adobe Premiere Pro with support for OpenCL harnesses the power of discrete AMD graphics cards and AMD A-Series APU's to enable real-time edits, application of effects, support for the new Lumetri deep-color engine, and multi-stream and mixed format accelerated workflows with AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology.
From its APUs and notebook graphics cards to professional workstation cards like the AMD FirePro W-series, AMD technology works transparently with Adobe Premiere Pro to provide scalable GPU-accelerated editing solutions. The software is accelerated by OpenCL to harness the compute power of AMD APU and graphics products and achieve up to 4.3X faster exports from a source format with effects to a preferred final destination format for quick distribution and publishing.
