In his presentation, David touched on several important features in Premiere Pro. Here are links to additional information about each:

There’s one segment in David’s presentation that requires some clarification: When someone asked why it took a long time to render segments that were dynamically linked to After Effects, David suggested using an Nvidia CUDA card to speed things up. However, After Effects doesn’t use CUDA for any rendering operations, so this wouldn’t help. The reason that dynamically linked After Effects compositions take a longer time to render in Premiere Pro than they do in After Effects is because the headless version of After Effects that serves the dynamically linked data is only a single process; it can’t use the multiprocessing features that After Effects can use when it’s running as the full application. In such cases, where you aren’t getting real-time playback that you need in Premiere Pro, it can make sense to render out an intermediate file from After Effects. You shouldn’t need to do this all the time, but it can be useful when the After Effects composition is especially demanding.
