Semi-newb with Shotcut, but the issue I’m having seems pretty basic: I have 5 different computers I run Shotcut on: 3 Win 10, 2 GNU/Linux. In 4/5 machines I have NVidia graphics – in one of the Win10 boxes, Radeon.
What I’m stumped by is that for one of the Win10 machines, with a GT NVidia 1030 card, Shotcut absolutely refuses to let me use a hardware encoder. I click the ‘config’ button, and Shotcut reports it can’t find any hardware it can use. Which surprises the heck out of me, since it finds the cards in all my other machines, and…since the 1030 card is pretty common.
I’ve always thought that artificially blocking technologies like nvenc in low-end chips is crazy. This greatly limits the scenarios for buying such cards. Today, any graphics integrated into the processor has a hardware encoder, but nvidia decided differently.
