    Video Rendered by Premiere Pro CS6/Encoder CS6 Horribly Slow/Choppy

    +Suzerain+ Level 1

      I have been using Premiere Pro CS6 to edit my videos (video-game footage) and wanted to render them using custom settings.

       

      The footage has a resolution of 2560x1600 and the details of the files are below:

      I created a custom render template in Premiere Pro CS6 using the following settings:

      There are TWO main issues that I'm having.

       

      1.) The video rendered (took more than 2 hours) and it looks TERRIBLE! It is extremely choppy, pixelated, and distorted for about 90% of the time. I have no idea why it turned out like this when the raw footage (recorded via DxTory) looks flawless @ 2560x1600 @ 30FPS.

       

      I have a feeling this could do with the Bitrate - 10Mbps. What should the ideal Bitrate setting be for rendering 2560x1600 @ 30FPS? Also, I have no idea why "KeyFrame Distance 90" is checked. Could that be causing the issue?

       

      2.) The render times are AWFULLY SLOW even though I've selected the GPU-based rendering engine (Mercury Playback) after adding my GPU (GTX-Titan) to the text file. This ~10 minute video took more than TWO hours to render which is terrible for a couple of reasons. I am running 4x GTX-Titan in 4-Way SLI.

       

      Now, before anyone says "Premiere Pro doesn't support SLI", I went into Nvidia's Control Panel (NVCP) and selected Double Precision and set the CUDA GPUs to "ALL". The really strange thing is that the GTX-Titan has 2688 CUDA cores PER GPU! I have FOUR of them and so the rendering, previews, etc. should be really fast!

       

      I rendered an intro sequence in After Effects CS6 which is about 12 seconds long and that took over 20 minutes to render @ 1080P!

       

      Something is definitely off regarding the settings and I really need help in optimizing my system to utilize the GPUs to render faster/better.

       

      Here are the NVCP settings:

      I really need help with configuring NVCP, Premiere Pro CS6, Media Encoder CS6, and After Effects CS6!
