on 2 of my systems, I can't get the GPU to be fully used when rendering.
(the machines were originally designed for a different piece of software).
system (3). is the one rendering fastest at the moment striking me as strange. I run the latest Adobe software (not beta) and the latest studio drivers (not beta).
any ideas on where to get started troubleshooting? I mostly use AE with heavy effects instead of live footage.
If you're sending Sequences from Premiere Pro or Compositions from After Effects, are any GPU-accelerated effects being used? If not, you may not see much if any GPU usage.
When encoding to H264 and H264 using "Hardware", it's Intel QuickSync or Apple Silicon via the CPU that's being put to use. You should not see much GPU usage and compared to using "Software" you should see a good improvement in render time.
Yeah, so the problem might be that I'm exporting it using dxv3 codec... you raised a fair point.
what would be a good codec to use for let's say a high-quality render to at a later time convert to dxv3?
I am using GPU accelerated effects.
ProRes Source in a Premiere Pro Timeline with Video Previews set to match and export to the same ProRes.
'Then convert that to dvx3.
ProRes 422 LT should work well.
