How To Enable Quick Sync?

Question

Bought the i7 2600k with Z68 motherboard and wanted to try out the Quick Sync capability. But in roxio 2011, I can't find the switch that enables it. So I'm wondering if it activates automatically. Any input is appreciated.

Quick Sync ? To move files from portable devices to your computer? Use Media Manager; it is under a couple of tabs like video and audio.

Sorry, never hear of it. I have heard of CUDA and STREAM where the video card does encoding quicker but not Quick Sync. CUDA or STREAM enabled video cards speed up the encoding by as much as 5X.

 

Edit - now I know what it is and it seems to be an imprrovement to a video chip on the motherboard.. Qucik sync speeds up the encoding by 2X. That would be difficult to measure. It is built in and Creator 2011 would not have a switch for it.

 

Do you just have the video chip on the motherboard or do you have a video card?

well according to intel, its build onto the processor. It essentially uses Intel HD3000 graphics and the converting speed is 18x faster than with a dedicated graphics card. i think there was a demo in which quick sync converted a video in 20 secs while it took GT560 Ti about 5 mins. Anyways, the intel site says roxio creator supports it from

http://www.intel.com/technology/quicksync/index.htm however nothing about how to enable it. So here I am... stuck.... Appreciate any help in getting this darn thing to work. Youtube awaits!!!

I cannot find where it is 18 times faster but 2X is what they show on the linked page.

 

I think that it is built in. You will have to experiment. Get a 5 minutes or so video and put it into Edit Video -Advanced. Go to tools then options and put a radio dot next to "software". Close that window. Now select to Output then export the file to mpg2 for DVD best quality. Time the encoding. Now go back and put that dot next to "hardware". Time that encoding. Do you see a difference. The hardware should be faster. Hardware uses you video card/chiip to do the encoding.

 

Sometimes, depending on the choip and other factors, software will both be faster and will give a better looking encode.

 

Did you build your own computer or did you buy. What I see is that the manufacturer has to have it enabled for you to use it. If you built your own, then there may be somethiing in the BIOS to enable it. Contact you computer manufacturer or Micorsoft to find out if it is enabled. The test above (hardware/software) would tell you a lot. Don't expect 18X.

 

Since you have Creator 2011, you have the Roxio flagship product which gives you free phone support. Call them and ask but don't be surprised if they can't tell you anything more than what I have.
