Advanced Micro Devices said Thursday that its collaboration with Adobe has reached a new milestone in the drive to deliver faster and more sophisticated professional video workflows. Thanks to support for OpenCL API by both companies, film professionals as well as enthusiasts can enjoy higher performance thanks to AMD hardware in multiple Adobe applications.

“By working together using open standards, we are tapping AMD’s impressive multi-core and parallel processing capacity to provide the accelerated performance needed to bring a new class of breakthrough software tools to Adobe Creative Cloud users. This makes it possible for pros to confidently tackle projects at every level, whether the final destination is a smartphone, 4K projection, or anything in between,” said Steve Belt, corporate vice president of strategic alliances & platform enablement at AMD.

New features and efficient workflows announced by Adobe for Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe SpeedGrade CC, and Adobe Media Encoder CC exploit AMD App Acceleration via OpenCL (which is available on AMD APUs, AMD Radeon and AMD FirePro GPUs) and deliver streamlined, leading edge support for Blackmagic Design and Vision Research Phantom cameras.

Both AMD and Adobe will showcase the complete range of OpenCL accelerated and enhanced video workflows at the IBC 2013 Exhibition, September 13-17 at the RAI Amsterdam.

“We are in the business of empowering all creative professionals, whether the project is the next global blockbuster or the passion of a lone independent producer. The team at AMD shares that vision with Adobe and it is reflected in the workflows they have helped make available to Adobe Creative Cloud users. The highly productive collaboration between Adobe and AMD continues to deliver tremendous benefits to the creative community at a remarkable pace,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe.

Attendees at IBC 2013 will see further demonstrations highlighting Adobe innovations that use OpenCL acceleration to benefit from the power provided by AMD graphics processors, including:

  • Advanced features in Adobe Premiere Pro CC: OpenCL-enabled acceleration yields a smoother, more fluid experience when using the new professional features in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. OpenCL makes it possible to balance the tasks between CPUs and GPUs for optimal performance.
  • Streamlined workflow with Adobe SpeedGrade CC:  The new Direct Link Color Pipeline in SpeedGrade enables users to open Adobe Premiere Pro CC projects directly in SpeedGrade to do color grading and then go directly back to Adobe Premiere Pro CC for additional edits. With the ability to also playback and execute enhancements on all OpenCL-accelerated edits and effects, this streamlined workflow eliminates time-consuming intermediary steps of rendering out the Adobe Premiere Pro project and then importing the flattened file. The new Lumetri deep color engine is now optimized using OpenCL acceleration to support real-time performance within SpeedGrade.
  • Expanded Adobe Media Encoder CC functionality:  Now Adobe Media Encoder CC can provide users with a more streamlined workflow by directly opening Premiere Pro projects.  OpenCL enables Adobe Media Encoder CC users to now leverage the Mercury Playback Engine, independent of Adobe Premiere Pro CC, and take advantage of AMD GPU acceleration to reduce CPU demand and enable faster transcoding for all of their media conversion needs.  This is further enhanced by the ability to apply effects, including color grading, from within Adobe Media Encoder CC rather than having to go to Adobe Premiere Pro.

Good work AMD. Focus more on the GPGPU spectrum than just gaming.

AMD and Adobe shaping the future-

amd's most anticipated tech is HSA, having unified(some say coherence) memory design..actually we will not see any considerable advantage of HSA when kaveri will be out reason is our current ecosystem,but there is lot of potential just see what will be after amd HSA+adobe-

1.adobe flash - will get atleast 2X performance boost at same power.
2.adobe reader - large rich pdf files render in just a blink at same power.
3. adobe image and video editing tools- here we will see real difference absolute immerse performance boost. we can see more than 5X performance boost here.and yes we will see new software capabilities....the best part is under 70watt TDP.

but there is a big challenge i.e. memory bandwidth, creates huge bottleneck and for kaveri if we want to see full performance we need bandwidth of atleast 100Gb/sec. my best opinion is ddr3-1600 mhz 3D stacked single chip of 256 mb used as buffer, this will add not more than 20-30$.
