Video Editing Software
#1
I’ve recently purchased a laptop with both integrated graphics and Nvidia 1060.  I expected Adobe Premiere Pro to work flawlessly, but that would be too easy.  Long story short premiere used integrated automatically and it can only be changed in BIOS, which come to find out, in the laptop I bought is impossible.  

So I either send it back and purchase something that allows me to choose the graphics, or find new software to edit on.

What video editing software do you guys use?

Back when I was making scifi fan films, I used Premiere and After Effects.

Windows Movie Maker will do the job for simple editing.

I was really looking to Premiere, so I’m pretty bummed something that (seems) as simple as them including disabling something in BIOS.

None of the other software is popular enough to have reviews stating if you can choose the graphics card or it auto selects regardless of settings.

I downloaded an open source application called OpenShot. Honestly, I haven't used it yet, so a critique is not possible. It was free to download.

https://www.openshot.org/download/

Looks lite is it supported in all the usual OS.s (Linux, Windows, MAC). It even has a DL for the source code if you're interested.
I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts if you opt to give it a whirl.
Too bad about Premier ... i always liked that editor. Sad

PS:

Have you tried to disable it in the Device Manager? You said BIOS, so not sure if you looked in the manager too or not.

I use Premier Elements on a MacBook. Its capabilities are limited, of course, but it suits my needs. I used Final Cut Pro for many years. Too bad I don't have the computing power anymore to use it.

PSS: I don't have Premier on this laptop, but I do have Photoshop CS5. So, maybe Premier is similar ....?
Under the Edit tab, then Preferences, then Performance, look for GPU Settings. There is a segment under that dialog for Detected Video Card. I only have my integrated card displayed because that's all I have, but in your circumstance ... dunno? Worth a shot?

I have been using CyberLink's PowerDirector for many years and quite like it. It was easy enough to learn the basics on but has a lot of features that I am gradually learning how to use.
It's little I care what path I take,
And where it leads it's little I care,
But out of this house, lest my heart break,
I must go, and off somewhere!
