Cinegy’s Rebrands’ Plugin Turbocut For Speedy Editing With Adobe Premiere

Turbocut is a new Adobe CC plug-in designed to accelerate the editing of H.264/HEVC by utilising the NVIDIA GPU’s hardware decoder.

The announcement coincides with Adobe releasing version 14.2 of Adobe Premiere with several new features added, but still missing NVIDIA hardware accelerated editing and using the NVIDIA GPU for decoding H.264 and HEVC.

As Jan Weigner, CEO Cinegy GmbH explained, “For many years, tens of thousands of users have been using the Daniel2 Plug-in for Adobe CC, which already offered the NVIDIA accelerated export of H.264 and HEVC. So, when we accelerated the editing and import features, it was obvious that the original product name didn’t match the main goal of the plug-in with the Daniel2 video codec technology. Turbocut enables faster editing and production with better video quality and it’s also much easier to remember than Daniel2 Plugin for Adobe CC.

“This may not be that important for an owner of a dual 28-core Xeon processor workstation,” Weigner added, “but for those editing on a laptop or small PC and lucky enough to have a recent NVIDIA card installed, it will make a dramatic difference to their editing performance.”

The other main feature is that it brings the Daniel2 video codec to Adobe CC. When editing in the Daniel2 video format, which is the equivalent to Apple’s ProRes or AVID’s DNxHR, editing in 8K resolutions or higher is easily possible, even on relatively small machines (e.g. quad core processor) or laptops.

In addition, the plug-in enables the use of the Daniel2 video codec as a preview file format. “No matter what source format you are editing in, this will improve editing performance – and it’s free.”
