***Updating the post to better reflect where my nvidia gpu-accelerated problem is - I consider this a bug - maybe VP16, maybe an nvidia driver issue - my question remains - where's a document to work through an issue like this***
I've been a vegas pro user since V12 and every rev I get a new computer with an nvidia card - and can never get it to work reliably ;( I have had much better success with Intel's hw rendering but for other uses the intel video driver isn't the best. So I'm trying once again to render with nvenc and getting failures. I was hoping there is some recent documentation on how to get nvenc to work reliably.
I have an 8700k, GT1060, 16GB RAM - I've updated all system drivers to their latest, set the preview memory max to 0.
My video source is gopro 7 (hevc) 4k/59.94 and am doing very little in terms of filters (for debugging all effects are off). I have an hour of video to render and it typically gets to between 10 and 12 percent and then I see the preview window stop updating while the rendering countdown continues.
I'd love to see anyone's successful (recent) experience fixing this kind of issue. Since this is the 4th generation of vegas I've not been able to make work with nvidia - appreciate any pointers.
