    No B frames

    "NVEnc" is just a generic term referring to the use of Nvidia's hardware encoding. Nvidia has been building circuitry into their video chips for encoding since the 2012 "Kepler" chip. With each generation of video chips, more encoding features & functions have been built in. The 6th...

    slowish navigation

    Your right, NVME is still too expensive for huge amounts of storage. I do think you could do better by keeping all your processing on the NVME drives. I start with the initial file on the SX8200, load to VRD, edit and encode back to the SX8200 for the finished file. Only after several files...

    RAM upgrade from 8 to 16 GB?

    Would not expect any gain with 16 GB & VRD at all. Running a single instance of VRD doing a 2-pass software recode, my rig only uses 4.8GB total memory out of 16GB. Of that 4.8GB, almost all is Win10 or loaded programs. What VRD is actively using is 300-400 MB for the program itself and...

    slowish navigation

    Looks like you spent money on your CPU, GPU and memory, hoping you mean the WD SDD, not the old HDD "disks" I also use a 3900X, but with a 1650 Super and 16Gb of memory - my navigation is instantaneous - maybe because I use a 2TB SX8200 NVME SSD for RAW file, temp files and final files. Windows...

    DVD chapters not saved to recoded file

    Thanks Dan...that is great info. Been using VRD since v4 and there is still so much I've never noticed or ignored (Like the check box for Auto QSF). Just always assumed VRD defaulted to QSF for the files because it was necessary. Nice...the AQSF toggle seems to stay off once unchecked.

    DVD chapters not saved to recoded file

    I'm having to take extra steps to get chapters in a video pulled from a dvd file. "Chapter Marks" is turned on and when cutting sections from a non-DVD job, the chapters marks are in the file at the cut points. I "Open File from a DVD", select the video and "Quick Stream Fix" opens. I select...

    Pause near start of saved selections

    It's probably due how your original file is encoded and the way you are cutting it. MP4 is merely the container for the audio and video, not a type of video encoding. Some raw recordings have very large referance areas or too many B frames. VRD is pretty good at letting you cut anywhere you...

    Encoding boost--Advance Profile Options...

    Too True - Any recode is a VERY complex chain of processes. Some can be processor based and some GPU based depending on your rig, software and settings. First your ripped dvd file will be in a container (maybe a .TS) and have to be demuxed into MPEG video and AC3 audio streams. Then the MPEG...

    Please add subtitle support

    DanR, I must be missing something. I've never seen anything in VRD about supporting subtitles. With a video containing UTF-8, S_TEXT plain text subs loaded, if I go to the Main Menu, no tab has any mention of subs. I've been thru the program Options and not found any subtitle settings...

    Please add subtitle support

    If you are editing a video with sync'd subs, any edits will throw off whatever comes after the edit and it will get worse with each additional cut. Each line has as timecode telling when it should be displayed. If you cut from the video, the time codes will still be the same and lines will...

    Windows 10 Nov 2019 Update makes me jittery

    What I meant, was that Win 10 by default decides when you need a driver update & just does it. Usually the MS mandatory driver version is not the latest, so if you keep updating something like a graphics driver from the vendor website, you will always be ahead of MS, so not get their older...

    Windows 10 Nov 2019 Update makes me jittery

    What I'm describing is something that the Win10 Nov Update did. I was trying to show how confounding it can be to for STAFF to track down a problem when multiple hardware and software systems are involved. Posting a problem here, even with log dumps or a sample may not be enough to cover...

    Windows 10 Nov 2019 Update makes me jittery

    I've been recording with a HD-PVR2 for years and editing with VRD versions/releases with overall great results. All of the sudden a week ago, all my recently encoded files started jittering every few frames during playback. It was happening on all 8 computers in the house whether, AMD, Intel or...

    NVEnc &16coreResults-Finally got HEVC to use all my 6core/12HT cpu...OUCH!

    With NVidia's HW encoding, you are offloading most decisions to the NVidia API and the GPU engine circuitry. NVidia has updated the API along with the new Volta GPU engine. Most encoding functions are moved into the chip. This means a choice like "2-pass" has to have a call in the NVidia API to...

    NVEnc &16coreResults-Finally got HEVC to use all my 6core/12HT cpu...OUCH!

    I'm getting ~300 fps on my rig with a Ryzen 3900X, 12core/24thread and Nvidia Volta GPU/NVEnc/HEVC/HD encoding. Using settings of CRF18, 1 pass, Slower for the GPU encode. Both the Ryzen and Volta are loafing during encodes - could easily do 2 at once. Don't know how it compares to your CPU...
