Lengthy export times begone! Adobe has announced an update to its video editing suite (including Premiere Pro and Media Encoder) that will allow for hardware-accelerated H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) encoding with Nvidia and AMD GPUs, significantly speeding up export times for the widely used formats. 

The encoding task is usually the domain of your PC’s CPU. However, through the use of task-specific encode and decode blocks, an encode/decode task can be shifted to your GPU, thus ensuring speedier performance and freeing up your CPU to do other things.
