    I was just wondering what programs are actually 3D accelerated? So in other words, what programs or kinds of programs use the graphics card?

    No need to mention graphic card video encoders like Badaboom, etc. Same thing with video playback apps like MPC, PowerDVD, etc.

    Very specifically, I was wondering about Photoshop an Video Editing programs like Sony Vegas and Final Cut Pro. I would think they are all 2D, but wanted a definitive answer.

    Thanks!

    Don't remember when Adobe introduced accelerated previews in Premiere and AE, but it was several versions ago. Certain plugs-ins have also utilized video cards in some fashion, and now with CUDA and Stream they're able to offer a lot more. nVidia bundles a couple CUDA plug-ins with their Quadro CX card.
