Hello everyone,

I recently bought a new laptop with Ryzen 5 4500u CPU with only integrated card.
And I only started making video.

At first I tried Resolve 16.
My video work involves removing green backgournd in a 6-minute video and add a nother meaningful background.

I tried 2 recommended approaches in Resolve: Color and Fusion
_ The Color approach was fast but struggles when adding new background to the video. Most of the time, the live view is flickering and the ouput video is also flickering and unusable.
_ The Fusion approach was better but it took 2.5 hours to render a 6-minute video.

Then I tried PowerDirector 12 - which was pre-install in my laptop
_ PowerDirector appears to be easy to used; it tooks 3 minutes to render the video, and the result is very good

Now I decide to use PowerDirector for my video hobbies

This make me wondering:

What are the differences that make the two softwares perform so different? as they are all professional video editing software.
Does PowerDirector work better with AMD CPU and AMD integrated graphic card?

Thank you.
