Voukoder is not about getting a speed bump
Alright. I found Voukoder googling for "quicksync alternative" actually, there are many videos about it on Youtube with titles like "increase rendering speed by X amount" - thats why I was thinking its all about speed while using the gpu to encode like Final Cut utilizing QuickSync to improve rendering times drastically.
In your case: Just select "Profile: High", "Encoding strategy: CQP" and "CQP Value:" to something aroung 15. Smaller values better quality / larger filesize.
Gotcha. Tried it, dont know what CQP means regarding kbit/sec., but the result with my test clip was, that it still took 1 minute longer than with using my cpu alone. During the test, my Vega was about 50% utilized, not more ..
I guess, since my goal was speed and speed only while maintaining quality, all the guys who were able to decrease their rendering times were using NVidia? Or how did they pull off x2 - x6 speed improvements? If yes, why does your encoder provide such a drastic boost to rendering times using NVENC but not AMD AMF? If no, what else could be the reason?
