NvEnc being Used ??

Post by db1964 »

Description of problem or question:

I'm not sure how to check if NVenc is being used or not with my encodes. I'm using a nightly build . In Preferences/Video 'Enable NVidia NvEnc' is ticked. I've looked through the pre-sets and don't see one that calls out the use of nvenc , so I've used my usual preset but I'm not seeing anything to suggest nvenc is being used either in the activity log or in the Performance stats for the GPU . Is there anything else you have to do ?

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

SuperHQ1080p preset , encode iso with mkv extension.


HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

HandBrake Nightly 20181022203549-3ce05cb-master (2018102301)


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

OS: Microsoft Windows NT 10.0.17134.0

It is not.

You'd need to select it from the video encoder dropdown for it to be used.
