SCRATCH 8 using OpenGL acceleration on AMD FirePro W9100 to accelerate the entire workflow

Posted by Tony DeYoung on September 24, 2014

Explanation of what’s new in SCRATCH 8 as well as a great demo of how OpenGL GPU acceleration on AMD FirePro cards works throughout the software from video processing, to editing, to compositing to finishing.

NUKE 9 & NUKE Studio on Mac Pro w and w/o AMD FirePro OpenCL acceleration

Posted by Tony DeYoung on September 24, 2014

The new NUKE 9 & NUKE Studio add full OpenCL support on the new running on Mac Pro with dual AMD FirePro D-series GPUs.  The video shows a doubling of multi-node performance when using the FirePro GPU acceleration as opposed to without..

Overview of Blackmagic Design Eyeon Fusion 7 VFX software using AMD FirePro GPU OpenCL acceleration

Posted by Tony DeYoung on September 23, 2014

Interview covering Blackmagic Design’s newly acquired Eyeon Fusion 7 compositing and visual effects software.  OpenCL is used to parallelize computations for complete interactivity in complex productions. Performance on AMD FirePro GPUs is real-time even for computationally expensive operations - amazing!

Adobe Premiere Pro User Experience 4k workflow improvements using OpenCL on AMD FirePro GPUs

Posted by Tony DeYoung on September 23, 2014

Overview of some of the updates to Adobe Premiere Pro CC that take advantage of OpenCL on AMD FirePro cards including real-time color correction and tracking across multiple 4k formats

RealVNC software real-time control and render of 3d simulation on a remote AMD FirePro W9100

Posted by Tony DeYoung on September 22, 2014

Demo of RealVNC software virtualization running on a laptop, but remote controlling a real-time render and manipulation of a 50,000 particle simulation in Autodesk Maya on a remote workstation with an AMD FirePro W9100.

The encoding and decoding runs in real-time using AMD APU and GPUs on the laptop and workstation with RapidFire technology.  This enables almost zero lag remote access to and control of a complex 3D particle physics simulation without specialized compression hardware or a dedicated remote access graphics card.

Modo, Mari and Nuke accelerated by AMD FirePro

Posted by Tony DeYoung on September 18, 2014

What can be achieved when you combine AMD FirePro technology with The Foundry’s production-proven software packages MODO, MARI and NUKE?
This PDF from 3DArtist gives an interesting overview of the MODO-MARI-NUKE production workflow and is a good read for anyone interested in 3D compositing

Video: Low-latency, hi-bandwidth GPU to SDI I/O using AJA and AMD FirePro cards with DirectGMA

Posted by Tony DeYoung on September 18, 2014

DirectGMA, a technology on AMD FirePro GPUs, can reduce that latency in live/on-air broadcast graphics workflows by making it possible to input (SDI card) process (GPU) and output (SDI card)  with minimal delay.  This is also important for 4K and 5K digital cinema workflows

The AJA cards that support DirectGMA write directly into GPU memory and vice versa the GPU can write into the memory of the cards instead of transferring the data to system memory first.
