I don't have the NV encoder rendering option

We have a Japanese user of 19.643 who has no NVENC option and no hardware decoder under file i/o (legacy AVC off) despite having a 2060 card show up in preferences/video and being on the current studio driver.

Any thoughts on how to advise him with this version of Vegas?

There probably won't be any other fixes for version 19, so this is already the third version of Vegas where this hasn't been resolved. The last version where it worked was Vegas 16.

Sorry, but it's 4 years really long time for such a repair.

@RogerS: Did he try turning off the automatic detection using the internal preference? That should help in most situations. "Options" menu (with SHIFT key pressed) -> "Internal..." -> "Enable automatic hardware encoder/decoder detection" -> change to FALSE from default TRUE and restart VEGAS.

@j-v: If this was working in the past, probably some combination of Windows Update + Driver Update might have caused the failure. Please delete all preferences - which should include the cached files in "C:\Users\<WINDOWS-USERNAME>\AppData\Local\MAGIX\FileIO\1.0" and see if that helps. Otherwise, try disabling the automatic detection as indicated above.

Thanks VegasHeman, I wasn't sure if that was still needed in 643. I'll translate and share this advice.

What is the GPU usage percentage when playing AVC or Hevc?

I can't get higher than max 10% in VP19 643. GTX970 not working.

 

RogerS wrote on 7/29/2022, 10:24 PM

10% isn't meaningful by itself, but looking at the individual components your decoding ("video decode") is not working. I assume legacy AVC is disabled and the media you are using is possible to be decoded by GPU (not 10 bit 4:2:2, etc.?) Is there also no video encode activity when a NVENC template is in use?

I don't have a GTX 9XX but here's my system using Intel QSV to decode:

The utilization rate of GTX970 is 8-32% in VP19 (550). CPU +- 45% and AVC plays smoothly.

In VP19 (643) GPU constantly 8-10% CPU 80-90% AVC plays jerky and jerks between cuts in videos.

RogerS wrote on 7/29/2022, 11:31 PM

The % isn't so meaningful. My GPU is at 8% doing nothing.
What is the GPU actually doing- try to watch it as described above.

From the CPU usage it sounds like the CPU is doing all the decoding in 643.

I've been working with it for 14 days. I am not able to force gtx970 to work in Vp643. Even if it is enabled in I/O.

I had the same problem. Only Intel type of render. I tried all steps, which were proposed @VEGASHeman, but my vegas crashed, when i click on "render", if "auto detected encoding" was false.
But i found the cause of the problem. It's a Cyrillic in the path to the profile name "C:/Users/.../"
When i changed name to the latin, my problem gone!

C:\Program Files\VEGAS\VEGAS Pro 20.0\FileIO Plug-Ins\so4compoundplug

check this folder name

if you have this folder different name, turn this name to default "so4compoundplug"

problem is solve.

if you have flicker in preview window, change name "so4compoundplug" to "so4compoundplug2".
but if you do this will missing nvenc encoder.
