Autopano Video - Preferences - General
CUDA is the parallel computing platform developed by NVidia we are now using into Autopano Video to dramatically increase performances. If you are running under Windows with a recent NVidia GPU (at least a GTX 760) and up-to-date drivers you can enjoy a 3x gain in terms of performances for the previewing and the rendering.
- 4K UHD inputs are not supported yet.
- CUDA is not compatible with every AV feature: stereo, masking markers, timecode burn-in, watermarks, patches, etc. When you are doing something unsupported by CUDA the software will automatically fall back to the old mode: OpenGL. You can always see which mode is currently used by look a the top of the preview: Realtime preview - OpenGL or Cuda.
- CUDA accelerations have only been enabled for 2 or 6 cameras, we will be testing other set-ups and add the support as soon as possible.
- The audio output is not implemented in the CUDA mode, we will work on that as soon as possible, by this time you can always add it in post production. Make sure to take a look at the known issues section at the end of the change log
