Hi everyone,


Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems to me that the SDK for offloading RED RAW footage decoding to CUDA cores with Nvidia GPUs is still not implemented in Premiere. Does anyone have some info about thism or maybe settings that I missed ?


I'm basing this on tests I'm running with my system :

Ryzen 7 3700X

RTX 3080

Premiere Pro 14.5.0

REDCINE-X Pro 52.5

Latest Windows 10


In REDCINE-X Pro, I'm smoothly playing back full 8K RED RAW 25fps with 15% CPU utilization and around 50% CUDA utilization.


In Premiere, with the same footage, I'm stuck at 1/4 rendering, and still hitting 40-50% CPU, with no CUDA utilization whatsoever...


Does anybody have info on this ? I can't for the life of me find anything on Adobe's website, nor on Youtube and Google...


Thanks for the help !
