CUDASynth

These CUDA filters are packaged into DGDecodeNV, which is part of DGDecNV.

I can't read Japanese so can't make much out of it.
It's a fork of AviSynth+ with CUDA support. I read it thru Google Translate service.

OK, but what does "with CUDA support" actually mean?

OK, now I'm an old guy who is officially lost and asking for directions.

I'm looking for latest CUDAsynth downloads and I guess AvsCompat.dll as well, per these,

I seem to recall something about a custom avscompat.dll for vapoursynth ... is one needed ?
For the normal DGIndexNV and DGDecodeNV no
For the CudaSynth versions one will be needed

Meanwhile, on the CUDASynth front, I have discovered some very interesting things focused around what Prefetch() does in Avisynth+, and what the PREFETCH macro does in Vapoursynth, and how they interact with CUDASynth. It opens a possible avenue for further performance gains. I'll write a post about it when I get an energy burst.
A (vapoursynth) patch would likely not be accepted as similar ideas have been rejected. No problem; it's easy to replace AvisynthCompat.dll.
This is the latest stuff I could find from circa 9/10/2018:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=671&hilit=AvsCompat&start=60#p9016
http://rationalqm.us/misc/CUDASynth_0.2.rar
which had it's own (older?) DLL versions
DGDecodeNV
DGHDRtoSDR
DGPQtoHLG
DGSharpen

Other downloads ?which seem to not be "CUDASynth enabled"? include
dgdecnv2053.zip
http://rationalqm.us/hdr/DGHDRtoSDR_1.11.rar
http://rationalqm.us/misc/DGPQtoHLG_1.0.rar

Hence, may I enquire about the latest status and plans ?

Thank you for your interest. I'll come back to this after dealing with a couple issues I have in DGDecNV.

Sounds like a plan, first things first.

Like, I thought I'd retired but now I'm back at work for a while ... one does what one has to ;) :? :wow: :o :shock: :facepalm:

:) Just wondering, is there perhaps enough customer interest in CUDAsynth to consider taking it further ?

"customer"? Don't you mean "donor"? ;)

Not too much traction for the idea, I'm afraid. Nobody cares about performance anymore?

I'll come back to it, but right now I have a physics paper in the works.

Speaking of traction, see here. I've been cited in an influential place. Arthur Fine is a monumental figure in quantum foundations.
