I'm just being courious about how/when the HW decoding works, and if the folowing behaviour is normal, I believe it's not.
I'm using Premiere Pro and Media Encoder, both v15.2, but had same behaviour with v15.1.
In Preferences, I can choose to use Intel or Nvidia for decoding footage (I know I have to restart the App to apply changes). I want to use Nvidia both for accelerated playback and exports, but can't put Nvidia to work when exporting media.
When I look into task manager the usage of the "decode" processor (for each GPU), this is what happens:
In Premiere Pro:
If I select (tick) Intel and Nvidia hardware:
-Playback in Premiere Pro shows activity at Nvidia Decoder
-Exporting in Premiere shows activity at Intel decoder
If I only select Nvidia:
-Playback uses Nvidia decoder
-Exporting uses CPU (Intel Decode and Nvidia Decode shows no use)
If I choose only Intel it works both for playback and export
In Media Encoder:
It always uses Intel Decoder, doesn't matter if I choose only Intel, only Nvidia or both.
Could I be doing something wrong?
When I updated PPro and AME I first uninstalled 15.1 and then installed 15.2
I reinstalled GPU drivers (Intel and Nvidia), using DDU, reinstalled same version.
Is there anything else I can do?
Here are the system's spec:
Notebook: Asus GL553VE
Intel i7-7700HQ (integrated graphics HD 630)
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050Ti 4GB
Windows 10 20H2 19042.867
Nvidia Studio driver 462.31 (Nvidia settings: VSync=ON)
