I’m back, after a fourteen-month break from video creation while I was on another project that took all my time.
I fired up ShotCut again, and - WOW! ShotCut on my machine had updated itself in my absence (I must have enable that magic long ago), and the difference is startling. I know there are a lot of new features, and that is what others are excited about; what I am excited about is the change in video exporting speed and resource usage.
- GPU Utilization is up from 25% to 38%
- Video Engine Utilization is up from 14% to 39%
- CPU Utilization is now 90-100% on all threads and cores
- The CPU clock boost is being properly triggered to max on all cores (3.6 Ghz instead of 1.4 Ghz)
The net result of this is that the exporting time, which was two to four times the video play length with the December 2018 version of ShotCut, is now shorter (slightly) than the video play length with ShotCut 20.2.
This is a major improvement in my production and time utilization.
I am very happy.
