If you're going to create proxies for a professional video workflow there's two ways to do it:

  1. Using CPU resources
  2. Using GPU resources

Now if your video professional you want to make sure you're using GPU resources as often as possible and here's why.

Performance! It's really that simple!

When you offload those proxy gens to GPU, it doesn't have the same downside to performance. Performance is everything when you're working with video. That's why it's so critical if you're going to create proxies, use GPU!
