With the latest Adobe Premiere Pro Beta build we have enabled Hardware Accelerated Encoding through Nvidia GPU card.


If you have Nvidia GPU card on your Windows machine, you will be able to use this feature.


To enable this option, select H.264/HEVC from the Format drop-down under Export Settings. Then under the Video tab, go to Encoding Settings and set the Performance to Hardware Encoding. Setting it to Software Encoding will disable hardware encoding and Adobe Premiere Pro won't use Nvidia HW to encode the media. Please see attached screenshot.

Feature is enabled in Adobe Premiere Pro Beta , Adobe Media Encoder Beta and Adobe Premiere Rush.

 

Please try out the feature and share your feedback.

Unfortunately I am not allowed to share this project file, however, if you can provide a sample project file I can test it on my system. I think it might have something to do with Lumetri Color - I tried exporting another project that was very simple and did not use Lumetri, and it was faster with NVIDIA compared to Quick Sync.

Honestly the GTX 1050 isn't the most powerful card in the world, so I'm not too surprised with the result, but I'm definitely willing to cross compare. 

 

If someone from Adobe wants to publish a benchmark project, I'd be happy to run it on a bunch of my systems

I agree, there may be some systems where the NVIDIA GPU is not fast enough to beat the built-in Intel Quick Sync, especially in battery-powered laptops. Adobe should allow the user to choose Quick Sync even if the NVIDIA GPU is available.

Will that also be available for playback/scrubbing in timeline? AMD-users do not have quick-sync but the newer hardware is generally more powerful so it would be great if hardware enabled playback/scrubbing would be possible... Thank you

Correct

 

Adobe is using Nvidia’s NVENC framework

 

Edit: as I look more into it, NVENC does actually have a 2 pass option (hidden under Maximum quality) in addition to the Rate Distortion Optimization option which is similar. It would be nice to see Adobe open up some more of these options.

The hardware encoding works great and is something everyone's been waiting on for a long time, one minor thing about it though.
When using dynamic link, any frame effected by it will render very slowly with very low cpu and gpu usage. I'm not sure if this is a glitch.

Beta software installed:
Premiere Pro beta
Media Encoder beta

After Effects beta

Hardware:
Nvidia 2080 Super
AMD 3950x
64GB RAM
