EDIUS & Quick Sync Video Technology Application Note (GVB-1-0501A-EN-AN) File size: 903.4 KB, posted Mar 31 2015 Intel Quick Sync Video (QSV) is a feature that has been included in Intel Core processors from the second generation onwards. QSV is a feature of all current Core processors (Core i7, Core i5 and Core i3), and is especially useful for video editing because it significantly accelerates MPEG-2 and H.264 encoding. QVS will improve encoding irrespective of the CPU power available too, which is good news for editors working to a budget.
EDIUS has been optimized for QSV to give users super-fast H.264 export (for example to Blu-ray, AVCHD or XAVC S). This Application Note describes the workflow of EDIUS with Quick Sync Video.
