Understanding DXVA
What is DXVA?
DXVA (DirectX Video Acceleration) is a feature of your graphics card that assists with video playback. Virtual Edit uses this feature to deliver the best HD video playback available. Not all graphics cards support this feature, but generally newer PCs/Laptops have it available.

Both NVIDIA and ATI graphics card manufactures provide DXVA technology under the trade names of PureVideo HD and Avivo HD respectively.

What if I don’t know what my graphics card is?
No problem! Virtual Edit will test your graphics card on start up. If your graphics card supports DXVA Virtual Edit will allow you to create and use Pro-HD projects to edit HD video. Otherwise you will receive a warning message.

Please note that Standard projects do not require DXVA support.
