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!
CS6 only uses ONE video card for previews. For exporting or transcoding the video card is not used at all, that is a CPU/memory/disk affair. Accept the fact that all of your Titans do not help at all. You would have been better off with investing in a better CPU, more memory and better disk setup.
