I'm new to this forum. I'm glad to be here and hopefully will be able to help others interested in accelerating video exports as I am.
I just found this project which seems very promising, but need to gather some info / other users experience before spending money in a GPU.
I currently generate about 6 hours of UHD (XAVCS 25p 60M) video every week, which I then edit and export to HEVC using Adobe Premiere Pro 2019 via Adobe Media Encoder 2019 using an Intel i7-8700CPU.
I've tested Voukoder plugin and obtained the following results for a 1:05h UHD clip.
- Voukoder HEVC (Intel QSV preset) export time with Mercury OpenCL acceleration 2h:04m
Voukoder HEVC (Intel QSV preset) export time with Mercury Software acceleration 1h:45m
- Voukoder HEVC (x265 preset) export time with Mercury OpenCL acceleration: 3h
Voukoder HEVC (x265 preset) export time with Mercury Software acceleration: 2h:25m
- Original Adobe Premiere Pro HEVC x265 (4K UHD preset) export time with Mercury OpenCL acceleration: 2h:25m
Original Adobe Premiere Pro HEVC x265 (4K UHD preset) export time with Mercury Software acceleration: 1h:20m
Clip consists in the original video footage with a simple legacy title (text) on top of it. Some (a few) of them have warp stabilizer effect added, which I don't know if is handled by the CPU or the GPU at export time..
I am currently considering purchasing one of (GTX1660 / RTX2060) in order to speed up export times if the time saved is really worth it. What would be the export times so I can consider if it is worth the expense?
What would be the approximate difference in export times between the 1660 and the 2060? 2060 is nearly 70% extra cost, but I don't know if there would be a significant export time difference.
The benefit I am pursuing is purely regain control of my computer, Sometimes i've had some issues because I needed to do something and the CPU was all being eaten by a 7 hour export . Overnight exports have become my latest choice , but I would really appreciate to make exports faster.
Thank you very much
