Adobe Premiere Pro gets NVENC support for up to 5x faster video exports!
The NVENC feature allows gamers to stream games without having to tax the CPU to encode the video output. The feature has been integrated into OBS, among other software, and now it is added to Premiere Pro 14.2. Video creators can now enjoy GPU-accelerated encoding to export videos up to 5x faster than with the CPU alone.
You can make use of NVENC with the latest H.265/HEVC codec as well as the popular H.264 codec. NVIDIA used the example of a video that’s 3 minutes and 9 seconds long. With the Intel Core i7-9750H alone, it would take 3 minutes and 48 seconds to export, while NVENC with the GeForce RTX 2060 GPU shaves that down to just 47 seconds. That’s a massive improvement and should help content creators save a ton of time and be able to spend less time waiting for their projects to export.
NVIDIA’s NVENC technology will also be available in Adobe Media Encoder, After Effects and Audition to speed up the export process too. Aside from the addition of NVENC, Premiere Pro and After Effects will also support Apple ProRes RAW. Creators can now import and edit ProRes RAW files in Windows without transcoding, thanks to CUDA acceleration on NVIDIA GPUs.
These new features will be available on both NVIDIA Quadro and NVIDIA GeForce GPUs in the latest versions of the Adobe software.
Pokdepinion: That’s some pretty significant time saved! I wonder if there’s going to be a disparity in the quality or speed between GeForce RTX and the older cards considering the newer NVENC encoder on the latest Turing cards.
