CC-CS6-X render comparisons
on Jul 14, 2013 at 7:00:47 pm

7:24 sequence with ProRes HQ 1080p/23.98 source media. Alexa Log-C at 60fps for 23.98 playback. Timeline set to render as ProRes422. Exports set to ProRes422 using render/preview files during export. Fast Corrector filter used for color correction in Premiere. Color Board color correction used for FCP X (Log processing turned off). Therefore each uses a similar accelerated effect that is optimized for that application. (Note: all times are minutes:seconds). Mac Pro 8-core 2.26 with 28GB RAM. ATI 5870 for Open CL tests and NVIDIA Quadro 4000 for CUDA tests.

RENDERS - ATI 5870 for emulation and OpenCL / Quadro 4000 for CUDA

PProCS6 render (emulation-only with ATI card) - 22:30
PProCC render (emulation mode) - 12:43
PProCC render (OpenCL acceleration) - 4:10
PProCS6 render (CUDA acceleration) - 6:08
PProCC render (CUDA acceleration) - 3:45
FCP X render (ATI 5870) - 2:26
FCP X render (Quadro 4000) - 3:39

EXPORTS (after rendering, using preview files in export)

PProCS6 export (ATI 5870) - 3:45
PProCC export (ATI 5870) - 1:24
PProCS6 export (Quadro 4000) - 6:09
PProCC export (Quadro 4000) - 1:26
FCP X export (ATI 5870) - 1:18
FCP X export (Quadro 4000) - 1:05

Clearly Adobe CC is better than CS6, but X beats them both. This might be affected by staying in ProRes, which is clearly best for X, but for which CC has also been tweaked. Also, if you want to run both CC and X on the same machine, get the ATI card over the NVIDIA.
