I noticed a few threads about this topic but not w/ a solid answer.
I am running on i7-7700HQ with a 32GB of ram, with GTX 1060 6G,
I updated PPro, AME and found out both had h.264 accel. settings on export.
But however AME refuses to switch from Software Only and says that no hardware is detected.
Plus, on PPro, I could select between the hardware and software, but it showed an error that
My system's hardware does not support hardware accel. for the current setting
when trying to select h.264 with VBR 2 Pass and CBR
it only works for VBR 1 Pass and I just want to know why.
I export a lot of videos on h264 and I would really appreciate it if this problem is fixed.
I found out I can't even select High10 profile with hardware acceleration
with the same not supported hardware error
In another thread on this same issue, there was a question of whether that specific CPU has the hardware internally to allow for the accelerated CPU process. Look through that thread for the details. There's a way listed there to go online and check for this.
yeah, i read that thread before this, and I personally know that Intel Quick Sync Video is supported for my i7-7700HQ CPU.
