Hardware HEVC and H264 decoding on Nvidia NVENC
I see that Windows Movie app is using modern GTX cards by default for playback and scrubbing which allows for ultra smooth scrubbing and almost no CPU usage even for 4K compressed files from cameras and phones.
When you drag these files to Premiere, scrubbing starts to suffer and CPU is highly used. The obvious thing is to support this feature in Premiere so we don't have to make proxies for everything

I'd really love NVDEC support for H.265 from Fujifilm X-T3 and X-T4.
I know I can generate proxies to speed up editing but it's an extra step and time consuming when you want to work on quick-turnaround projects.

We've got NVENC, get on NVDEC now!

Please, leverage the best hardware to its greatest potential. NVDEC, NVENC, it's not 2002 anymore, it's 2020 ... pretty pretty please.
Mason Smith commented
There is absolutely no reason that, for paying for this professional software, I have to deal with much slower or painful conversion of file formats to edit, just to convert them BACK into those formats for exporting! Without this support, it's completely made me refuse to use Premiere and I will be switching back to my other editor until this is resolved.

I've also used Resolve recently, and the importing/playback of h.264/h.265 is comically faster and smoother than Premiere's is. Please Adobe, consider adding NVDEC to Premiere. NVENC would be nice too, but we have the Voukoder's plugin to handle that. We need NVDEC!
Herbert Vuijk commented
Note, don't confuse NVENC and NVDEC.. The last one is for decoding. Encoding will only help you while exporting. For that there are solutions like the Voukoder plugin.
What we really need is NVDEC support. NVDEC is used all the time when creating proxies for example or if you don't use proxies it's used to decode h264 and hevc content on the fly.
I expect that proxies is not longer needed voor hevc content once PP supports nvdec.. It's a shame that the do not support it already.

I would like to see built in Nvidea NVENC encoding and decoding, why do we have to use a third party plugin, Voukoder's Adobe Premier Plugin for Exporting with x264, x265, NVENC, AMD AMF? If this is built into CUDA, please have instructional video's that state this.

Resolve 15 and FinalCut X perform smooth playback for years already.
Adobe released hardware dicoding on AMD discrette cards on MAC's since premiere pro cc 2018.
So if You are lucky owner of iMac Pro which is powered by Vega graphics you can enjoy of smooth playback in last version of Premiere pro 2018.
But it is strange to me why adobe do nothing about hardware decoding on windows with NVIDIA GPU's which are more powerfull than VEGA GPU's
Paul Styler commented
Davinci Resolve use NVIDIA power to decode video during sincle clip or timeline playback.
The result is fantasticly smooth palyback even when multicam sequences are played.
I can not understand why Аdobe does not do the same thing for so many years.
Adobe does anything except what everyone needs and what everyone expects.
They improveVR, instead of making their software more stable and usable.
Adobe does not care about what we need, for them the main thing is to make more money with new and unnecessary functionalities
Tried Resolve 15 and it imports files and scrubs ultra fast. 4K H264 without proxies on basic GTX 1060 6GB card - no problem. The whole Resolve experience feels much smoother and fast than the latest Premiere
