Making Media Encoder faster for my proxies

My computer is using little utilization while trying to create a proxy for Premiere Pro on Media Encoder. Is there anyway to speed up this process. I can't wait 6 hours to get 3 hour video to be at 144p?

Why are you making H.264 proxies? Most people make proxies to get away from long-GOP formats. And use say ProRes Lt or Proxy.

 

And in this case, I don't think your CPU nor your GPU have any included H.264 encoding bits, so it's a slow slog of the CPU.

 

Past that, I don't know if your cache is on an internal SSD, especially a good idea is an Nvme internal that only has cache files on it.

I always render my videos in H.264, which is why I thought this was okay to do. I'll try the lowest ProRes option.

 

I'm unsure if my CPU or GPU have H.264 encoding bits. I'm not sure what other for format I would use. My CPU is a AMD Ryzen 7 3700x, my files are going to my Onedrive that is on my main SSD, Samsung SSD 970 EVO, and lastly, my GPU is the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT.

 

I'm not to sure how to respond to your last comment.

Neither your CPU nor GPU has long-GOP hardware. So that means it's simply a CPU thing, for all H.264/5 work. A really tough slog, if you understand long-GOP media.

 

Where do you have Premiere putting cache files?

What Neil is saying is where do you have your Media Cache set to in Preferences as well as how do you have your project scratch disk locations set to. Those 2 items can have significant impact on your project.

Yes, go with ProRes Proxy format, you'll be glad you did. 

 

I'm not sure how the 'onedrive' could affect things, perhaps put your files in a different folder and manually back later. Or turn off onedrive. 

 

You should be good with everything on the 970evo as long as it's not nearly filled.

Gotcha. I tried ProRes with the low resoultion option. It took about 8 hours to see 3/4 progress on this 3.5 hour video. Maybe it has to do with the onedrive file it is going to.
Do you think there is any way I can increase processing power as it is only using 10-20% of my CPU and GPU?

Pretty much it just uses as much as it uses, as much as it needs.

 

On Windows, in the power options (sleep, no sleep, etc) there are some options that control how much processor you can use. If you set minimum to 50% it will always use 50% even in idle, but if it's a laptop you're on, there may be some on battery / on AC (mains), etc... You can experiment. I have a stay awake setting I use if I'm running a long process of something. How is your gpu usage, is that low also. It generally calls the GPU if you are changing frame size.

My GPU usage is pretty low as well. I have a Radeon RX 67000. Last time I was making a proxy it flucuated from 5-10% usuage.
I'll take a look at my desktop when I get home. I'll have to see those power options you were metioning.
