Hi

There would be no benefit from a second video card in Movie Edit Pro or Video Pro X. The single GTX1080 that you have is already not being fully utilised, nor can it be used for rendering in MEP / VDLX.

System Specs: Intel 6th Gen i7 6700K 4Ghz O.C.4.6GHz, Asus Z170 Pro Gaming MoBo, 16GB DDR4 2133Mhz RAM, Samsung 850 EVO 512GB SSD system disc WD Black 4TB HDD Video Storage, Nvidia GTX1060 OC 6GB, Win10 Pro, MEP2016, 2017, 2018, 2014 Premium and prior, VPX7, 8, 9. Microsoft Surface Pro3 i5 4300U 1.9GHz Max 2.6Ghz, HDGraphics 4400, 4GB Ram 128GB SSD + 64GB Strontium Micro SD card, Win 10Pro, MEP2015 Premium.

Hi

. . . . Is there no way out to use the gtx card . . . .

None at the moment with MEP - in the future only Magix knows.

If you want to upgrade to Video Pro X which does support Hardware Acceleration (HWA) using the NVENC encoder, be aware that it is for HEVC ( h.265) video only.

@pinnoes

Please contact Magix sales support as they do not monitor this forum. You may find that they will allow you to upgrade to VPX for the difference in price.

As John has warned, VPX will only give HWA for HEVC encoding on the Nvidia card although the program does have additional features as well.
