Hardware DECODING

Hello everyone,

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

16GB Ram

 

Windows 10 20H2 19042.867

Nvidia Studio driver 462.31 (Nvidia settings: VSync=ON)

Intel graphics driver 27.20.100.9466

 

Footage is  H264 2704x1520 29.97fps 4:2:0

no one?

 

Can any people using Nvidia hardware export a video from an H264 source and check if Nvidia decoder is being used at Windows' task manager?

 

Thanks
