Creative Professionals Supercharge Their Adobe Creative Suite 6 Workflows with NVIDIA GPU Technology

Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium has been released.

With acceleration from NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla professional GPUs, motion graphics which would initially take hours to create can now be done in minutes. Adobe has now added even more support for NVIDIA GPUs across the entire Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium software. Artists and editors can now see workflow improvements using NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla GPUs.

Adobe Creative Suite 6 continues to feature the NVIDIA CUDA-accelerated Adobe Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro, providing up to an 8x performance boost for fast video editing. It also features new GPU accelerated features which enable fluid playback of today’s most challenging video and D-Cinema formats, including DSLR, RED 4, and 5K native footage, with improved multi-cam support for an unlimited amount of cameras.

NVIDIA GPUs Enable Dramatic New GPU-accelerated Features for Adobe After Effects CS6, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, Adobe SpeedGrade CS6 and Adobe Photoshop CS6

SINGAPORE — Whether in small agencies or the largest media conglomerates, creative pros want tools that let them bring their vision to life as fast as possible, without having to trade off quality for speed and interactivity. Now, with the upcoming release of Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium with acceleration from NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla professional GPUs, artists and editors have unprecedented power and interactivity at their disposal. Motion graphics that would take  hours to create can now be done in minutes. Effects that used to render a few frames per second now  run at full speed. Colour grading that simply wasn’t possible at this price point is now within the easy  reach of small shops, and much more.

Expanded Breadth and Depth of GPU Accelerated Features

Following the introduction of the innovative NVIDIA CUDA-accelerated Adobe Mercury Playback Engine in previous versions of Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe has now added even more groundbreaking  support for NVIDIA GPUs throughout the entire Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium software. Whether using Adobe After Effects CS6, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, Adobe SpeedGrade CS6, or  Photoshop CS6, artists and editors can see workflow improvements using NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla GPUs, and NVIDIA Maximus technology, which offer the best performance for accelerating the new  and improved tools in the Adobe Creative Suite 6 software.

Adobe After Effects CS6

Adobe After Effects CS6 simplifies and accelerates the motion graphics workflow like never before with a powerful new 3D compositing pipeline that employs ray tracing for uncompromised image quality. Creative pros can now incorporate extruded and beveled text and shapes directly within After Effects, integrate their rendering with its native layers, and eliminate the traditional time-consuming back and forth with external 3D tools. Adobe’s new “Ray trace 3D” renderer leverages the NVIDIA OptiX ray tracing engine for rendering realistic materials, accurate reflections, soft shadows, depth of field, and motion blur. The new ray tracing becomes truly interactive, delivering final frames up to 27x faster when using NVIDIA GPUs, as compared to dual hex-core CPUs alone.

Adobe Premiere Pro CS6

Adobe Creative Suite 6 continues to feature the NVIDIA CUDA-accelerated Adobe Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro, providing up to an 8x performance boostfor fast video editing. It also features new GPU accelerated features like Uninterrupted Playback, a new and improved Three-Way Color Corrector with additional capabilities, and real-time playback of stabilised video utilising the new Warp Stabilizer. This enables fluid playback of today’s most challenging video and D-Cinema formats, including DSLR, RED 4, and 5K native footage, with improved multi-cam support for an unlimited amount of cameras. In addition, NVIDIA has created a plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 that enables support for NVIDIA Quadro SDI Output cards, which support multiple channels of HD-SDI output at very low latencies.

Adobe SpeedGrade CS6

Adobe Creative Suite 6 will include Adobe SpeedGrade CS6, a real-time, professional color grading tool optimized for NVIDIA Quadro GPUs, with exclusive support for NVIDIA SDI Output cards. Only the Quadro 4000, Quadro 5000, and Quadro 6000 are recommended for Adobe SpeedGrade, giving users maximum precision and performance for colour grading RAW and High Dynamic Range content.

Adobe Photoshop CS6

Adobe Photoshop CS6 features the new Mercury Graphics Engine, adding key, new GPU-accelerated features like liquify, puppet warp and intuitive new blur tools. This expands on an already wide variety of GPU-accelerated features to enable faster previews, real-time imaging, and smooth response times for unprecedented speed and fluid editing, compositing, and image manipulation.

NVIDIA Quadro SDI Output

Only NVIDIA Quadro GPUs paired with Quadro SDI Output cards enable graphics-to-video output in both Adobe SpeedGrade and Premiere Pro CS6, enabling efficient SDI monitoring of the complete workflow in  the same GPU-accelerated system.

NVIDIA Maximus Technology

Combining NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla GPUs and a single unified driver in the same workstation, NVIDIA Maximus-powered systems enable video professionals to create complex, multi-layer projects faster than ever before, transforming their editing workflows by enabling simultaneous high-performance graphics and parallel processing, further increasing their productivity and empowering their creativity.

Adobe (Booth #SL2624) is revealing Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium software accelerated with NVIDIA GPUs at NAB 2012, April 16-19, in Las Vegas. In the NVIDIA booth (#SL9215), Adobe is showcasing the 3D ray tracing features of Adobe After Effects CS6, along with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, both accelerated by NVIDIA GPU technology.

NVIDIA GPUs are designed and certified to boost the performance of Adobe Creative Suite 6 for the best possible user experience, with the highest reliability, exclusive Quadro SDI output support, better image quality, and faster performance, with NVIDIA Maximus technology providing up to 6GB of graphics memory for the ultimate performance across Adobe Creative Suite 6.
