Hardware-accelerated video exports with Nvidia NVENC
Finally! The waiting is over because Adobe just released a brand new version of Premiere (14.2), including support for hardware-accelerated video exports.
And This results in HUGE time saving differences! In my tests is was between 1,5 and 4,2 times faster. Check the video for more information.
In the newest version of Premiere, we can now also use the NVIDIA encoder or NVENC to export videos. This can be used to accelerate the encoding of H.264 and HEVC (H.265) video codecs. But be aware that only the newer series like the GeForce 10 series are compatible with Hardware encoding inside Premiere.
NVENC is dedicated Hardware designed specifically for accelerating video encoding running on an independent section on the Nvidia graphics card. This NVENC technology is not new. New in fact, it was already introduced back in 2012 with the introduction of GeForce 600 series. But only the newer cards (10 series and newer) can use NVENC in Premiere Pro.
