Welcome : Hardware acceleration
Hardware acceleration
Depending on your hardware specifications, Corel VideoStudio lets you optimize the performance of your system by optimizing hardware acceleration.
Hardware decoder and encoder acceleration is supported only by Windows Vista and later versions of the Windows operating system software and requires at least 512 MB of VRAM.
To change hardware acceleration settings
1 Select Settings > Preferences [F6].
2 Click the Performance tab and select the following options under Editing Process and File Creation:
Enable Hardware Decoder acceleration — enhances editing performance and improves clip and project playback by using video graphics acceleration technologies of the computer’s available hardware
Enable Hardware Encoder acceleration — improves the rendering time required for producing your movies
Note: For optimum performance, VGA cards must support DXVA2 VLD mode with Vertex and Pixel Shader 2.0 or later.
If you want the program to automatically detect the hardware acceleration capabilities of your system and determine the optimum settings, select all hardware acceleration options in Performance Optimization, including Enable hardware acceleration optimization.
If the feature is not supported by your system, some hardware acceleration options will be grayed out.
