Hardware

The graphics card is the most important piece of hardware to consider for using VideoStitch.

What to consider ?

You first should have a nVidia card. It is mandatory, as VideoStitch relies on the power of the nVidia CUDA framework. The graphics card’s GPU should achieve compute capability 1.3 or better, which is the case of all CUDA compatible cards nowadays. The most important caracteristics to look at when considering a graphics card for VideoStitch are :

Graphics memory

The memory of the GPU card is very important. If you want to stitch large videos, you’ll need a card with lots of memory.
Don’t worry, you can have a 4GB card with less than 100€ nowadays !

See our reference table to find out of how much graphics memory !

Some high end graphics cards come with multiple GPUs.

These cards behave just like a mutliple GPU setup : the amount of memory that VideoStitch can use is the ‘per GPU’ graphics memory
eg: the GeForce GTX690 advertised as a 4Gb card, offers 2Gb per GPU and will only allow stitching what 2Gb can hold.

CUDA cores ? The more, the faster !

And speed up is roughly linear. If you have 1500 cores on your card, you will get about 5x faster processing than with a 300 cores.
Also almost every card nVidia card should work, we have selected 3 graphics cards to give you an idea of what to look for if you plan to buy a new one :
