AAV ColorLab is a free plugin that gives you hardware accelerated effects for Vegas and Movie Studio. It uses the graphics card to offload the CPU, which can lead to massively faster rendering times and smoother previews!

What's next...

Just a short teaser :). The next version will include a new effect: "Blur", which replicates and extends what the Vegas-builtin "Gaussian Blur" does, using GPU power. I'm quite excited about how fast it turned out. My low-end Quadro NVS140M laptop gfx chip can just about do PAL DV at 25 fps for any blur size. The Vegas blur runs at 13 fps using a single core on the laptops Core 2 Duo T9500 CPU.

Also included will be some bug fixes and a garbage collector for video mem usage.

Thanks. Cool, I'm still not sure of the directions to take the plugin. Perhaps I should poll some forums to find out what effects people feel are lacking in Vegas, or which built-in ones they do use but are slowing them down.
