I know this question has been coming up for over decade now, but I wanted to follow up since we have a new version of Vegas out. Just curious, is anyone able to get Vegas 18 to fully use their pc? I have a 12 core AMD 3900X Ryzen cpu along with an NVidia 1080ti, and from the performance charts I attached my pc is basically snoozing when Vegas 18 renders, it just doesn't use much of it at all. It still *much* faster than without gpu assist (I've timed it) but still, it would be great to know of there is some setting that would let Vegas actually take full advantage of my pc to speed up render times. For reference my videos are very simple, a single 4k file from a Sony A73 camera, a single watermark applied, and a single Film Convert visual effect applied which supports gpu, that's it. Note the gpu graph trails off at the end because the encode had just finished.
