Rendering Performance went WAYYYYYY down

Jim-Mickol wrote on 5/14/2021, 12:57 AM

Upgraded to Build 527 and latest Nvidia driver. Rendering to a 1080/60p project with either the Mainconcept or NVidia MP4 renderer caused drastic reduction in render time. It seems to pause for many seconds and then render in spurts. Downgraded to previous version. Windows 10, Intel I7-8700K/48GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070.

  • Windows 11 Home
  • Vegas Pro v20 (Build 214)

Maybe try the benchmarking project to see if your performance is different than what would be expected for a system of these specs.

I've benched the upgrade against vp17 on a number of my systems using both the Sample Project benchmark as well as RedCar with HD, 4K AVC, 4K HEVC, and 4K ProRes media and vp 18 build 527 shows an increase in performance across the board with my Nvidia 1050ti and 1660. I did see a decrease in performance, however, in my selected systems with Amd graphics cards (Radeon 7 and 5700xt, so far) on v18 compared to v17. Looks like the Magix developers may be partial to Nvidia. 🙂 Details here.

@Howard-Vigorita interesting results. I am using AMD graphics, and while I do have "time" to render, having a performance drop from VP17 to 18 is not good. If anything, it should be the same or slightly improved.

Ok, I just rendered a 23 minute project that includes some 4K/30P and some 1080/30p content. I rendered to 1080/30P/10mbps With Vegas Pro v18/527 it took 00:51:57 (NVIDIA NVENC) . I copied all of the timeline elements to Vegas Pro 17/455 and it took 00:13:23 rendered with NVIDIA NVEMC to the.same SSD. Both VP versions were right after upgrades to the latest builds. Any ideas or suggestions?

Reset 18? https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/faq-how-can-i-reset-vegas-pro-to-default-settings--104646/

Render times should be roughly comparable.
