Use software OpenGL implementation – this option can be useful if your computer doesn't support the necessary OpenGL version and you see an error message when you start the program.

OpenGL is a software interface that manages graphics output. Usually, OpenGL is handled by your graphics card driver. However, some graphics cards do not support the necessary version of OpenGL. For these graphics cards, you can use this option to download and install a software replacement. Installation will run automatically, but you will need an Internet connection to download the files.

• This option is only available if your computer is equipped with an Intel processor that supports the Intel HD Graphics™ technology.

Enable NVENC hardware acceleration
• With this option enabled, your NVIDIA graphics card will be used for processing H.264 and MPEG-2 videos and they will be saved up to 50%

Compatible graphics cards
NVIDIA acceleration supports GeForce, Tesla and Quadro graphics card series.

Fast Track HD Acceleration
Fast Track HD Acceleration provides smooth and fast program running. By enabling HD clips optimization in the Preferences menu you allow the video editor to create copies of the project files in a smaller size and then use them in the project instead of the original ones. To enable this feature you need to have free disk space, so the Editor can store and use the copies. Once you finish editing and begin export, high quality files will replace all the temporary optimization copies.

If acceleration options are unavailable:
