Premiere not using GPU?

Hi, I'm an advanced user with 2 2080ti PCs. Latest Windows, latest drivers etc. Both PCs max out CPU (i9-9900k) on rendering and exporting but the GPUs sit mostly idle.

 

I've tried all the combinations of render options in Premiere.


Is there a trick I'm missing or should I hold tight? My GPUs are flawless in other apps - 4K graphically intensive games, for example.

The GPU only helps render effects. That being said the GPU can help render h.264/265 but you have to use hardware acceleration. The video might be helpful.

I have done a few videos about Intel's Quick Sync but you can now use your GPU for rendering H.264/H.265 with the newest version o Premiere Pro.

Thanks, I read the link and watched the video unfortunately they just assure me something is amiss. All the options are set correctly and I'm testing across different projects. Maybe it's the latest update but there's also a weird delay now before rendering and exporting starting that wasn't there before.

 

The GPU seems to be completely bypassed as if the settings are ignored although. I'll keep investigating. Thanks

Update. I've gone back to 14.3 seems a little better.  I dunno, maybe a placebo and I got lucky (upto 30% GPU on the same videos that had 0% before) though the only thing in 14.3.1 patch notes that could possibly, maybe be a hint is  H264/HEVC playback improvements when using Premiere Pro on Windows running Intel processors

 

Not sure that would effect anything but I am using an intel i9-9900k and H264. I dunno, maybe a placebo and I got lucky.

 

I just hope things improve in general, I imigine it's a minefield for Adobe making updates for so many different configurations on top of different OS and drivers. It just seems this year I've been having way too many issues when last year was perfect.

 

Thanks

If you are using an i9 9900K you might find the video below helpful.

This video shows how to enable and disable Intel's Quick Sync for playback and rendering.
