Hardware Encoder High CPU Usuage


I decided to try out Shotcut for it’s Hardware Encoding Support. I have an Nvidia RTX 2080. Using the latest Nvidia Driver 430.86 the h264_nvenc doesn’t work. I noticed this in the Task manager 0% in Video Encoding.

So I tried the oldest driver I can get which is 411.70. That kinda works but it’s only encoding at 30% with high cpu usuage. Using HEVC yeilds higher results in the Task manager for Encoding 63%. But still fairly high CPU usuage.

Is hardware encoding still in Beta stage??

Thank you

This is normal. Hardware encoding is for the video encoding only. The audio/video decoding, all audio/image processing, and audio encoding still takes place on the CPU.
