Hardware Encoder Usage Note
When you click the checkbox before selecting anything in Configure… Shotcut detects what is available on your system. Then, in Configure… you can see what was detected and override. If you clear all the options in Configure and click the checkbox again, then it re-detects. In case you have multiple implementations (for example, amf and qsv), then Shotcut uses the first one (amf). This is another reason to have manual configuration: to prevent an implementation from being used by de-selecting it. Below is what is available for each operating system. Yes, there can be MPEG-1 , MPEG-2, and possibly other codecs for your hardware implementation, but I only chose to support H.264 and HEVC for now in Shotcut’s automatic configuration. You can still use these others through the advanced options.
- h264_amf (AMD)
- h264_nvenc (NVIDIA)
- h264_qsv (Intel)
