VP17Edit versus VP18Edit for gaming videos.

So i just bought VP18Edit and configured just like VP17Edit. Having a 33,5 GB HEVC file (~ 65 Mbits of 1 hour and 10 minutes) generated by OBS on a RTX2080Ti i proceeded with encoding (AVC for YouTube: 1080p60, 12 Mbit, 192 Kbit) in both last versions.

Unfortunately not much difference on my system:

VP17 - CPU hovered around 25% (max 30%) - both versions had set 6 cpu threads in options and GPU was max 45%. Finished the rendering in 34 minutes.

VP18 - CPU almost the same and GPU was definately much lowered used.. maybe 35% iirc. Finished in..37 minutes and almost all the time told me it was using 2 gb of memory.

later edit: i see that VP18 has two pass for NVENC now.. will test it soon.

second edit for fr0sty: Ryzen 3900X + NZXT X62 280mm, 32 gb ram, 1 gb ssd, rtx2080ti.

Well.. i installed Voukoder 5 with the VP18 connector and it seems quite fast! The cpu went to 40-45% while GPU seemed like with VP original encoder.

So.. VP17 34 min, VP18 37 min and Voukoder 22 min ! Visual result seems as good as Vegas' original encoded file, almost same size.

I think it's look ahead mode, but that is automatic in high quality setting for Nvenc, so i'm not sure it does anything. Please test

Here is my quick comparison. Project length 6mins 14sec, 39 clips 4K rendered to Bluray HD with sony AVC 24p GPU template, Intel 3rd gen ivy bridge proc i5 @ 4GHz, 16GB ram of which Vegas typically uses 7GB, GPU 1080Ti. V17 render = 9mins 40sec, V18 render 7mins 8sec.

@dape Thanks for sharing with Voukoder. Are you rendering to x.264 using one of the templates? I'm having issues using Voukoder with CPU mode- it's very slow and takes a few minutes just to close the render. For NVENC it's impressively quick.

Of course not x264... Time is money and i cannot afford to wait for cpu rendering even on my beast of PC. I used Voukoder NVENC AVC with High Quality and Bluray presets on a 1080p60 movie rendered for 12 Mbit for YouTube.
