Cinergy CUDA Codec Daniel 2 - Ready for use?

Cinergy CUDA Codec Daniel 2 - Ready for use?

[13:47 fri,27.October 2017   by ]    

bildWe have often reported on Daniel 2, a GPU-based CUDA codec that is known for its enormous encoding and decoding speeds. Today we have been informed that a first free release version has recently been posted on the manufacturer&s website. Besides the player, the Adobe PluginPlugin im Glossar erklärt seems to be of particular interest, which not only promises the import and export like an earlier beta, but also the editing in the timeline of Adobe video applications. This is the first time that the suitability of the new codec for everyday use can be assessed. (original quote:"Import, edit and export Daniel2 video files directly in Adobe CC").

In order to be able to use the full speed of the codec, you should of course have a CUDA-capable graphics card from Nvidia in your system. The new version also has a CPU fallback, which is supposed to scale very fast and especially well with a high number of CPU cores. The plugin also supports Nvidia hardware for exporting H. 264 and HEVC with up to 8K.

This sounds very nice for a free plugin, but there are also some small hooks to it. For the first time the codec is currently only working under Windows 10 with 64 bit and uses only Nvidia GPUs for acceleration.

Secondly, we don&t quite understand why the codec is also known as HEVC/H. 264 Exporter. To be interesting for more users?

This leads us directly to the integrated Licence Manager, which requests a license check every 45 days via the Internet. The download itself will also only take place after registration.
According to Cinergy, all this should ensure that you are regularly updated with the latest versions, but also raises questions: Will the codec and the plugin remain usable free of charge in the future? Why does Cinergy want to monitor the use of the software on my computer and what exactly is monitored?

If you have less doubts, you can try a test run. For a greater benefit than Intermediate CodecCodec im Glossar erklärt, the codec would have to be integrated into many other applications as well. For this reason alone, Cinergy should be keen to distribute the codec as quickly and easily as possible. Will a license manager and the limitation to a registered download not slow down the distribution unnecessarily?
