    experimental GPU-accelerated H264-encoder plugin for NVidia Kepler GPU

    nvenc4everyone Level 1



      A few months ago, I posted an experimental third-party exporter for Premiere CS6.  The plugin uses the hardware-video encoder (NVENC) of the NVidia Kepler GPU (GTX650 and better.)  At the time, NVENC encoding-speed in Premiere Elements 11 was poor; it was almost no faster than Premiere's built-in Mainconcept H264 encoder (which uses pure software encoding.)


      With Elements 12, under ideal conditions NVENC encoding speed almost matches Premiere Pro CS6.  For doing a *straight* re-encode of a 1920x1080p24 source H264-video (no effects, no resizing, etc.), NVENC is roughly 3x-4x faster than Mainconcept. Of course, CS6 has the hardware-accelerated MPE video-renderer whereas Elements 12 doesn't, so CS6 is still much faster if you do a lot of video effects and manipulation.)

      nvenc_export is experimental, unsupported software: you should not install it unless you are comfortable with working with third-party plugins.  (There's no installer package, you have to manually copy files to your Premiere installation-path as Administrator.)



      You really should read the included readme file.  But I also tried my best to make a tutorial-video on the installation procedure.  Watch it here: http://youtu.be/wPrcQ133YE0
