PD13 is the sole editor on my computer, having deleted PD11 and PD12. Deleting 11 was easy however 12 turned into a PITA Because of left over files, hundreds of them, the REVO uninstaller did a great job, so did CCleaner to clean the registry.

Installing PD13 then went easy.

I do make clones and backups at the drop of a hat, that provides a sound sleep at night!

HEVC certainly cuts down the amount of storage needed, in fact it virtually cut it in half at basically the same PQ.

But at a steep price, the encoding of a 5 min 4K 30 FPS, 60Mb XAVC-S stream from a Sony FDR AX100 took 70 minutes !! This compares to 17 minutes for a 4K MP4 264 60 Mb file using SVRT. It appears however that SVRT did not really help. No acceleration was used, CPU only.

The 5 min 4K 265 file is 1.2GB versus 2.2 GB for the 264 file.

As mentioned below my computer CPU is a i7 920 app 4 years old,with 12GB memory.

Hard as I tried both files looked the same.

Hopefully the upcoming optical players will provide 4K formats other than 265. I will also try higher 265 bit rates to see if it speeds things up.

no it isn't...

I lied(I will not upgrade to PD13 & waiting for PD14) and upgraded to PD13.
rendering 2 minute 4K videos from Note 3 is taking over 1.5 hours??? really?
Come on...

it sure does saves HD and external HD space but this is way tooooooooooooo painful.

already then...

since PD13 doesn't like PD10, I've uninstalled PD10 Ultra and PD13 Ultimate picked up some speed.
however, it's still ted slower than PD12 Ultimate Suite.

Eugene,
When you uninstalled PD11 did it insist on removing any NewBlue FX? I know, it's a wee bit off the main topic. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---
Canon Vixia HV30/HF-M40/HF-M41/HF-G20/Olympus E-PL5. Tape capture using 4 VCR, TBC, Elite BVP4+, Sony D8 camcorder with TBC.

While awaiting Eugene's answer I found this link: http://www.cyberlink.com/support/product-faq-content.do?id=17750&prodId=4&prodVerId=-1&CategoryId=-1&keyword=newblue . The answer is given here. Curious as to why Cyberlink did not give you the answer. Guess that I'll have to follow that procedure given when I install PD13.

Well, producing H.265 is too heavy for current CPU, let's cross finger for Intel, AMD or NVIDIA if they can provide hardware encode soon, I guess they will have hardware decode first, especially for coming next generation 4K Blu-ray disc.

Jeff (J_J) reported that with the latest patch, his Maxwell2 based video card (GTX 970) is able to encode 4K h264 hardware. To me that means that Cyberlink finally added support for the hardware nvenc engine - while still maintaining CUDA support for Fermi (with older drivers or the added files to newer drivers).
There are rumors that nVidia will release in future drivers with h265 encoding using the same hardware engine... (and that's when I will buy one of their Maxwell2 cards):

The Maxwell 2 version of NVENC further builds off of the Maxwell 1 NVENC by adding full support for HEVC (H.265) encoding. Like HDMI 2.0 support, this marks the very first PC GPU we’ve seen integrate support for this more advanced codec.
