Support for Nvidia Cuda

Before downloading your latest Beta 6 release, I would like to know if it is compatible with Nvidia Cuda as other pro software. The latest version VideoReDo V6.4.86.793a downloaded and installed in my PC does not work with Nvidia Cuda. Only Nvidia Nvenc seems to be supported. Nvidia Nvenc is standard with GTX 970 cards and more. Nvidia cards below 970 only support Nvidia Cuda. Only 26% of Nvidia GPU card users have 970 or higher. Other users like me have a product below 970 and I do not plan to change the 2 GTX760 that are in my PC.

When I need to re-encode an H264 or H265 (occ. 4:2:2) video file after cuting, I'm using Edius Pro 8 which supports Nividia Cuda, but it does not always keep subtitles in the file. My version VideoReDo TVSuite V4.21.10.681 is perfect and never misses the subtitles. If this version V4.21 supported Nvidia Cuda, it would be great.

I also have VideoReDo TVSuite V5.4.84.771, but this version is not stable. This software closes itself or freezes for no reason. The version V4.21.10.681 never does that is perfectly stable. Maybe version 5.4 is not compatible with my Intel 12 core processors. I am with Windows 7 ultimate multimedia version french edition.

Do you plan to implement Nvidia Cuda in version 4 and 6?

Thanks,
Jean-G.

Hi Hydra,

I always built my PCs myself and these cards were in one of my old PCs. I put it back in my new because they are very good video cards for video editing and Nvidia Cuda is supported by all my editing software except VideoRedo.

The latest Pegasys VMW7 from June 2019 detects and supports Nvidia Cuda but removes completely the subtitle tracks from the files. It's completely stupid. I need that and only VideoRedo seems to be the TOP for keep the subtitle.

I've got VMW5 and 6... why go 7? -------(this is not a "smart editor")

"Now with HDR Editing and 8K Output Support."

Sadly, I don't need this yet. :)

We support NVEnc which uses a type of CUDA specific to NVidia chips, but it's not generic CUDA that will run on AMD or other GPUS. Most NVidia GPUs from the past 5-6 years support NVEnc so if you have an Nvidia card it should work.

A couple of notes though... we do not use the full NVidia (or QuickSync) pipelines for encoding like some special purpose encoders do. We just use the encoders. These APIs support a full pipeline that includes decoding, processing and encoding that keeps everything on the GPU. Unfortunately VideoReDo depends on doing some of that processing in software to support some of our unique features so we're not able to use the complete pipeline. But even just using the encoder can result in significant speed increases and reduction in CPU usage, so it's still worthwhile. It just may not be as fast as some other software that uses the complete GPU pipeline end to end.

Thank you very much Dan203 for the answer.

I just downloaded and installed the version VideoReDo TVSuite Beta V6.4.91.798a available on this site and it still does not work. I have the following message on the screen.

Maybe my Intel CPU is too old. It from 2017. But the other software works under Cuda with 10% CPU usage maximum. Even the latest AVS Converter version from yesterday works with Nvidia Cuda. Only VideoRedo does not work and it is VideoRedo V4 that I mostly use for my ATSC (MPEG-2) to H264 conversions. It sometimes use up to 40% CPU usage without Cuda.

In VideoReDo TVSuite Beta V6.4.91.798a installed today, when I do Option + Hardware Encoder + Nvenc Information, I have a window with the following information:

- GeForce GTX 760 : 3.0 , H.264:True, HEVC:False
style='color:black'>- Processor: : Intel(R) Core(TM) i9 CPU 7920X @ 4.33GHz
style='color:black'>- Adapter: : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, 23.21.13.9135, 2018-03-23
style='color:black'>- Windows version : Windows 7 Ultimate MM

Good night

That should work fine. Check the NVEnc settings in Options. You may also need to upgrade your driver.

Also not all GPUs support HEVC encoding, so if you're saving spas HEVC that could be the issue.

Hello Dan203,

The only parameter I saw for Nvidia is in version 6: Tools + Options + Stream Parameters + Default Encoder. I did not see anyone else.

I believe that the GPU section of my nvidia card works with HEVC. I have no problem reading or encoding H265 files. In playback mode PotPlayer with the function Info gives me the picture below

https://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/19/62/00/51/v6_nv_10.jpg

And I use the file at the link below if you want to see if it's in H265.

UHD NASA TV - 2019-07-23_11h28m08s.ts - 77.3 Mb

I also believe that the Teletica channel of the Intelsat 11 satellite has been converted to HEVC for a few days. I test it today with VideoRedo V6 to see if it handles this type of file. I recorded a few seconds with DVB Dream at the link below.

Teletica - 2019-07-15 - HEVC - Intelsat-11 - HD-1080i.ts - 16.1 Mb

Also, I noticed that the CBS Galaxy-19 satellite is testing with 5.1 audio track rather than the current Dolby E. Here are some seconds of this week's audio / video test. I have not checked if it is in HEVC.

CBS East Feed - 2019-07-22 - G19 4100 H - 09h40m49s_fixed.ts - 46.9 MB

In short, I will update my Nvidia drivers and get back to you with the results with VideoRedo V6.

Have a good day

Tools -> Options -> Hardware Encoders

Click the NVEnc Info button at the bottom and copy and paste the info here.

It’s :

- GeForce GTX 760 : 3.0 , H.264:True, HEVC:False
- Processor: : Intel(R) Core(TM) i9 CPU 7920X @ 4.33GHz
- Adapter: : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, 23.21.13.9135, 2018-03-23
- Windows version : Windows 7 Ultimate MM


I already have the latest Nvidia_V391.35 driver available for my GTX-760. This GTX-760 does not support NVidia NVENC technology, only Nvidia CUDA. Only GTX970 cards and more support Nvidia NVENC. On the other hand, it seems that all cards of the GTX series support Nvidia CUDA. Edius, TMPG, CyberLink and other video products on my PC, all support Nvidia Cuda. I think VideoRedo V6 does not support Nvidia Cuda.

Thank you for your help.

If you go to this chart and expand the Geforce/Titan section it says the GeForce GTX 760 supports NVEnc for H.264 4:2:0 only....


But it does support it.

FYI: We have no plans to support generic CUDA encoding

Ok, thank you very much Dan203.

I will wait for my Nvidia 760 to crash and I will replace it with something compatible with Nvenc when the time comes. For the moment, my other video editing software works with Cuda. And to cut the Mpeg-2 and H264 files, VideoRedo V4 is my favorite and does the job very well. It's the best.

Good night

Trying out the new beta with my GeForce GTX 1050 ti with all the latest drivers. Getting this:

- GeForce GTX 1050 Ti: 6.1 , H.264:False, HEVC:False
- Processor: : AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight-Core Processor
- Adapter: : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, 26.21.14.3615, 2019-08-24
- Windows version : Windows 7 Enterprise

Any suggestions welcome.. Both should be true according to the matrix.

Thanks!

Good question, on the surface it should be supported. My Windows 7 system with a GTX 1050 isn't working right now, some problem with the boot drive, but here's my information from Windows 10. Can you spot any significant differences especially with the System Information screen from the NVidia Control Panel. (Start the NVidia control panel, and click on Help>System Info).

Code:
- GeForce GTX 1050  : 6.1 , H.264:True, HEVC:True
- Processor:        : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz
- Adapter:          : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050,  25.21.14.2600,  2019-07-21
- Adapter:          : Intel(R) HD Graphics 630,  23.20.16.4974,  2018-02-28
- Windows version   : Windows 10 Enterprise

Nothing significantly different. NVEnc is working in Blue Iris (DVR program) which I use on the same PC. I can see the stats using GPU-Z. Using the very latest drivers for my 1050-ti.

Below is my Nvidia system info:
