    I'm a bit hesitant to call this a bug, maybe it is though.


    With Identical settings, NVENC HEVC only uses about 15% of my GPU's video encode when 10 bit is selected, NVENC HEVC uses 90% of my GPU's video encode when 8 bit is selected. In 8 bit I get a real time export, while 10 bit takes 4-5 times longer for what seems to be no reason. Since I kind of need 10 bit for my export, this is a pretty big setback for the longer videos I render, since 30 minutes becomes 2 and a half hours.


    Edit: I'm aware this could be Premiere being slow with handing frames to Voukoder.

    Make sure you are using the correct video levels (limited/full) and bt709 for hd video or bt601 for sd.

    That wasn't the issue. Had to do with the way Premiere ingests content it recognizes as HDR. Premiere converts it, then I have to convert it with a preset, then export to Voukoder where it gets converted again. At some point the colors shift.


    Solutions are use FFmpeg to make a new video that Premiere reads as SDR, or use the built in HEVC encoder.


    Alternatively, it may be possible to bypass this issue if you can add Bt2020 to the video tab in the Export menu of Premiere. I have no clue if it would work, or if it's even possible to implement that.

    I meant the Inferno would act as the second monitor.

    Oh, that may work depending on audio.


    DLSS 2.0 and NVENC 2.0 made my 2070 Super a 1080 Ti on roids, and it was definitely worth it. I'm really excited to see more programs adopt DLSS and Tensor Core support. Because 1080p upscaled to 2160p is basically identical with a 70%ish boost to fps.

    Yeah, I don't have 2 monitors yet. And that's a big upgrade from a 970.


    Anyways, thanks for keeping this thread alive, it's really helpful. Maybe when I actually start making content I'll make a video form of this guide.

    Note that your recordings from NVIDIA are probably 4:2:0, as are youtube, and I don't think youtube goes over 60fps

    Yeah they're 4:2:0. I don't intend to record 144hz, but the port on the Ninja Inferno would have to be capable of taking that signal.


    I honestly think waiting for my hardware upgrade and then either using Premiere's HEVC encoder or the FFmpeg method will be the best solution, at least until HDMI 2.1 comes to capture cards. I'll have to test render times both ways though.

    As another option, if you can afford it, the Ninja Inferno is what I use to capture HDR footage natively to ProRes via HDMI. In order to get a format Voukoder can work with properly, I just click the "rec709" button in the recorder to let it format the input signal as rec709 without modifying the input colors at all. It'll look all washed out on the monitor while recording, like it does in premiere when you import that format, but it'll work great with Voukoder!

    Does the Ninja Inferno require a capture PC to use? Even if it does, it's gonna need HDMI 2.1 support, because I'll be running games at 4k 144hz 10 bit 4:4:4.

    95-100% utilization on the CPU for an hour. I am working from a hard drive, in the future when I have more SSD space, I may end up temporarily moving relevant videos to an SSD for the editing and exporting process.


    Not sure about how the Ninja Inferno works out for me. But regardless I'm getting a 4950x/5950x (depending on what AMD calls it) and a 3090 soon, so I won't have to resort to only using Voukoder NVENC for convenience.


    If there's one thing I've noticed in my time preparing to make 100% HDR gaming content on my channel, it's that 99% of resources available are complex and poorly built. Premiere suffers from a lack of GPU acceleration while editing and specifically exporting HDR, and issues with Rec709 and Bt2020. FFmpeg uses Command Prompt which can be confusing for people who don't speak command line. The other editing softwares have pros and cons as well, but are a little worse for editing. Point is, everyone falls a little short, and it's annoying.

    It appears to have worked, uploading to Youtube to compare side by side as i'm posting this.


    Although this sort of defeats the purpose of why I personally use Voukoder (NVENC HDR). It takes my 3600 2 hours to render my videos with the normal Premiere HEVC encoder, 20 minutes for NVENC HEVC with Voukoder. This method took 1 hour to finish in FFmpeg and another 20 in Premiere, so while it IS faster I still have to choke slam my poor CPU to do it.


    Thanks for the help on this, thanks for the incredible post, but it looks like i'll be waiting for a CPU upgrade!
