Apparently you can use your GPU to help your render speed in Sony Vegas. I just cant figure out how too :/  Because it takes me forever to render a video, but if my GPU could help that would be awesome. I have version 10.0 of sony vegas.

Specs:

CPU: BX80623I52500K INTEL CORE I5 3.30G 1155 6M BX
RAM: Corsair DDR3 2X4GB 1600 (8GB Kit)
GPU: ASUS ENGTX570 DCII/2DIS/1280MD
HDD: 2X WD CAVIAR BLACK 1TB 64MB 3.5
PSU: SPI 1000W 80 PLUS ATX 12CM FAN
MB: ASUS P8P67-PROR ASUS S.1155 INTEL P67, ATX

GPU-accelerated AVC encoding support expanded to AMD.
In addition to the existing nVidia CUDA support, Vegas Pro 10.0d adds support for users with AMD ATI graphics chipsets that support OpenCL to use the Sony AVC encoder for faster project rendering.

NVIDIA GPUs
GPU-accelerated AVC rendering requires a CUDA-enabled GPU and NVIDIA driver 185.xx or later with a GeForce GT 2xx Series or newer GPU.
For more information about CUDA-enabled GPUs, please see http://www.nvidia.com/object/cuda_learn_products.html.

ATI GPUs
OpenCL GPU-accelerated rendering requires an OpenCL-enabled ATI GPU and AMD Radeon Catalyst driver 11.2 or later with an ATI Radeon HD 57xx or newer GPU (please see Known Issues regarding an incompatibility with driver versions 11.3 and 11.4). If using an ATI FirePro GPU, FirePro unified driver 8.773 or later is required.
For more information about OpenCL-enabled GPUs, please see http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/Pages/d...

GPU-accelerated rendering performance will vary depending on your specific hardware configuration. If you have an older CPU and a newer GPU, rendering using the GPU may improve render times.
