Could anyone say what is the best video card to speed up rendering of projects within Camtasia Studio 8 for Windows?

I understand the benefits of video cards with CUDA resources in applications that work with rendering 3D models ... but still does not get me very clear what features of the video cards are used for rendering video projects.

Thanks

Currently by default we'll use the video card for scaling, rotation, transitions and some other effects but not for hardware-accelerated video encoding. It's definitely on our radar though!

Have you made any progress on GPU accelerated encoding? Would it make any difference--today--if I add a higher performance graphics card to my system?

This means that there will soon be a new version of Camtasia Studio that will use all the  CUDA resources from video cards to speed up rendering of projects?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Do the Video and Audio cards in my computer affect the quality of the produced or rendered final videos using Camtasia Studio 8?.


I have 2 Dell Precision T5400 computers, with one being used as a backup.The computers are virtually the same except for different video and audio cards in each. I am using Windows 7-64bit operating system.

When rendering the same project or video on each computer it seems one produces better video quality than the other. It also seems the audio is also better on one than the other when I watch the same produced video on both computers.

Do the video and audio cards affect the quality?
Does anyone have recommendations for a good video and audio card?
Is there a technical pdf somewhere on this topic?

Camtasia Studio 8 is amazing!
