  • H.265 Conversion issues on Trial

    Running the Trial 10.0.2.1 to see if I want to purchase.

    I'm running into two problems that I would like to know are either a trial version issue (and thus will go away when I purchase), or something that is the same in the paid version as well and thus a problem.

    1) When converting from h.264 to h.265 using CUDA encoding on my 980 GTXs with 378.49 drivers, the process says it finishes but only about half the movie is actually in the output file. Is this because it is a trial version? It has the watermark, but I thought that was the only limitation. Here are the log entries for my most recent attempt:

    Code:

    2) CUDA does not work when trying to encode 4k h.264 into h.265. It only does software and it then runs at about 4fps conversion. Is this also a trial limitation or a known problem? Here are the log entries for my 4k attempt. I aborted it about 30 seconds in:

    I think it should convert the whole file with the watermark. I have no problems converting x264 to x265 on my GTX 1060 using CUDA.

      Ok. Thanks for the info.

      Now... I wonder why this is happening. I've tried different versions of the Nvidia drivers but same problem.

      Have you tried converting 4k? Does CUDA kick in for you?

        I'm using the same Nvidia driver as you. I don't have anything in 4K to try and convert...

          A friend of mine has some 4K x264 the're bringing by later in the weekend, I'll try converting to x265 and post the results...

            Much appreciated.

            Cheers!

              I got the file early, tried the latest DVDFab 9 and 10, CUDA doesn't kick in, the estimated convert time was around 3.5 hours. Can this be fixed Wilson?

                My results with a 7 minute short H264 4k file was similar. No CUDA with any 4k so that was expected and took way too long to convert to H265.

                  Converting with 4k with Fab is really useless without Cuda as even with a I-7 computer using mkv hi quality you only get 2 fps and 24hours to convert the most recent Star trek movie with h265. It's cheaper to go out and buy a 4k copy than have computer convert it.Using normal quality only increases fps to 4fps this is really useless until cuda can be used with it.

                  This is the same problem with 3d movies using full 3d no Cuda my question goes to MR. Fengtao will we get Cuda help on the 2 above issues if so when or:

                  Fab has also created it's own speed up programs in the past lightning recording/lightning shrink/blu path so what about updating Fab for the future with creating a new speed up program or getting Cuda to work with these.

                    None of the hardware acceleration options work with 2pass anyway. Nor in 4k or 1080p. So quality will be the issue no matter what the fps.

                    DVDfabs h265 implementation also produces a ~30% bigger file than x265 with the same bitrate.

                    So I don't really get the point of encoding a 4k film like the new Star Trek with h265 and CUDA. The result, if a satisfying quality should be achieved, will be huge in file size. Better keep it in AVC until software gets better.

                      Actually, the quality is good and the file size is small, your mileage may vary....

                        Well... I purchased the Ripper and Video Converter and clearly, as noted above, the 4k and 3D Full HD optinos do NOT utilize any hardware encoding.

                        I looked for a support page to contact the company directly but could not find any.

                        Do we just submit our problems here and hope that someone in the company sees them? Seems like a strange way to address customer issues.

                        PLEASE get us some type of hardware accel for resolutions larger than 1920x1080 (for full from 3D, I use 1920x2160).

                            There is also a features request here in the forum http://forum.dvdfab.cn/forumdisplay.php?f=15

                            We been asking for Cuda with full 3d for years I wish Fab would just say they can't do it and this is why or come up with their own speed up program for full 3d and 4k.
