[Kevin Monahan] "I was curious as to why you are using a real time effect in testing rendering speed? And what is emulation mode? Are you referring to Software Only processing?"

Emulation mode is MPE Software-Only.

Since it's an accelerated effect it gains the benefit of CUDA and/or OpenCL hardware acceleration, since this hardware acceleration affects scaling and color correction only for the most part. Yes, it's "real-time", but that also means it's faster rendering, too.

Also it's an effect that *should* be similar processing to what Apple is doing with their built-in Color Board. As such it's sort of an "apple-to-apples" comparison.

In my opinion, ultimately nothing in Premiere Pro is truly real-time, since it requires rendering at some point, even upon export. As you can see from the render and export times, clearly there's a difference based on software emulation, CUDA and/or OpenCL acceleration. At least that what it seems to me.

Am I misunderstanding something?
