    Too Old? For those of use that still need to create DVDs, MPEG2 is the only option.

    My suggestion to ACIK is that assuming the source is in Premiere, use Debug Framesever -> TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works. Create a template in VMW for the DVD style you need. It's how I've been doing it for years at the quality is way better than stock Adobe. It's not fast but it will work.

    First off, I too have donated at least twice for Voukoder - early on in it's infancy and then again on a stable version release. I will donate again once the new follow-on is released. I absolutely chafe at the "rent a code" model like Abode CC but as a retired S/W engineer I understand it's a better way to get consistent revenue. I'm from the days when sw was bought outright and then used with updates until a new version was available and deemed enhanced enough to buy again.

    I appreciate what Vouk is doing and the situation he's in.

    Regarding CCFS, I've been using the older FREE version for years. At least that 3.1 version has been stable with no complaints. It's slower in fps than using Voukoder directly but sometimes it's the only path that works ... mainly back in the day with Voukoder had problems and I had to get video out of Premiere. I too use frameserver to pipe output to TMPGEnc.

    I don't understand. Just switch over to the Options tab, ignore the Presets, and select as indicated. If BluRay option isn't set in options, won't work. Only way that "Slice" gets set correctly for NVENC.

    Attached are screenshots of NVENC and x264 setups that import correctly into BluEditing Sw like TMPGEnc. Note that NVENC is for 29.97/30 fps and x264 is for a 23.974/24 fps projects.

    Hope this helps.

    I've always used TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works and the old Carbon Coder ... but then I fold that output back into the old Adobe Encore for creating the DVD. To use Encore efficiently I have to merge back into the MP2 the Premiere medadata ... using EXIFTool(so I get chapter markers).

    I did analysis and every MP2 encoder was better than Premiere in terms of speed and quality.

    I haven't burned a DVD/VOB (with MP2) probably 2 years but when I do, I do Frameserver to a "real Mpeg 2 encoder" instead of that sorry excuse that Adobe provides. Tapping into FFMPEG's mp2 encoder would help a lot ... if I ever do DVDs again.

    Are you using NVENC or x264 for encoding? I can give you example settings for both. Are you trying to import 720p or 1080p? Frame rate?

    Note that the TMPGEnc "RE" marker will appear for all files that it can't use directly. You can left mouse click on the RE and an info box will come up to show what video stream parameters are not compatible, then adjust the Voukoder setting accordingly. Most common is to ensure you're at level 4.0 ML/HP.

    YUV 420 is normally used for internet video. It is the default color subsampling format for h264 video.

    Just expect huge files, but also a very pleasant scrubbing in the premiere timeline. ;)

    I am using 6.2, is "YUV 420" a selectable codec? If so I don't see it in my list. If it's a preset, I don't see it either.

    It would be ideal for Voukoder to hook into (and support) the Rigaya package for all things NVENC and then use FFMpeg for everything else. This would definitely complicate/duplicate a lot of Voukoder code. There is another thread somewhere way back where the issues were addressed.

    Two weekends ago I tried to install Voukoder on a new Win 10 machine. I got the same error. Never seen it before on any other installs I've ever done. I didn't have time to debug it so I just manually hacked in the registry entries to make it work.

    I assumed that voukoder does a passthru to the audio encoder in some standardized way. What you show is NOT what I thought 5.1 is mapped as. What I've used and I confirmed via for PCM audio is: L, R, C, LFE, Ls, Rs.

    As I wrote, Audition gives you great control on how you can map, merge, mix the channels but you can map it also in Premiere via Track Mixer with mapping of 1 - 6.

    But do you actually have a Surround theater sound system? If not then why complicate? Just downmix to Stereo. Again Audition has some nice methods to properly do it.

    We use 8 mics for the concerts I record. I can control how much I want a mic to mix/bleed with other channels. From that I can generate 5.1 or stereo.

    Created a different setup that don't hit the memory issue and it all work. Found my problem ... hidden in the output.

    >> BTW, I had a saved preset that I'd transferred from my usual machine to the one I was using for this test. That preset had audio configured to use Fraunhofer but the new machine didn't have the DLL. In the audio settings panel it said I was using regular FFmpeg AAC (no Fran listed) but then I noticed libfdk-aac in the summary panel. End result it that it errored out.

    I combined to issues (sorry), first one is where I've included log files. Under conditions plugin can not see/connect to GPU. Pretty sure there is a bug here somewhere.

    2nd is the issue with FFMPEG sucking up GPU memory and not leaving enough for noise reduction plugin that is configured to use NVENC. For this memory sucking, I seem to remember FFMPEG automatically increasing the "Surfaces" (??). Reason I see this as an FFMPEG issue is that I can frameserve the encoding to a 3rd party (TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works) encoder that is configured to use NVENC and it all works fine. I looked at the GPU memory load and it was WAY lower than Voukoder/FFMPEG.

    On a related note, is there any way to restrict the amount of GPU memory NVENC sucks up? I foolishly got a card with 2GB (old System had 3GB) and to do further testing on the problem I tried to set it up so I'd have 1st part of the encode without competing usage of the GPU (NVENC get's GPU 0) but that didn't work as the effect needs somewhere > 1GB of GPU ram and NVENC is taking it all.
