I recently had the chance to test this feature out on Premiere Pro.
The computer we installed it on has a i7-2600K with 16gb ram, and a new Z68 motherboard with lucid VIRTU installed. After installing the plugin and making sure VIRTU would hand over to quick sync for Premiere Pro, a H264 render that normally took 15 minutes with no special hardware acceleration (no hardware mercury playback) took only 3 minutes to render with the Intel SDK plugin. An amazing increase in speed.
Unforunately the colours have been modified to an unacceptable level, and we are unable to use the plugin.
Install was extremely easy. All it took was to download the plugin and copy to the plugin directory and everything worked fine. No mucking around at all.
I look forward to the day when I am able to use this feature without it modifying the colours.
Keep up the good work.
