Hello all,
Had some hickups lately trying to render 4K in HEVC 264. Any idea?

Thanks

I assume you're asking about a GTX1060 like in this older discussion

There hasn't been any change in nVidia drivers for PD14. The most recent version that PD14 can use to access the NVENC hardware is 411.70 as was discussed here.

The only way to use a current nVidia driver (like 461.92) is to update to at least PD16.

I answered the "best driver" part of your question, but if you're having other problems we'd need to know some specifics about what you're seeing on your end.

For example, you can produce to AVC H.264 or HEVC H.265, but not what you wrote. The more accuate the description you can provide, the quicker we can try to figure things out.

Optodata, my head is still spinning from your fast response, Thanks!

You are correct, I have to render 264 or 265 with the CPU, used to do that with the video board and 10 times+ faster. I guess that a new GTX 1060 driver screwed it up. Now trying to find one that goes back far enough.

The link in my first post will take you to the 411.70 driver.

If you insist on sticking with PD14, you will have to continually monitor which nVidia driver is installed as Windows will automatically try to update to a newer version. You should also keep the 411.70 installer in an easy to find location so you can run it when you need it.

Also, you may first have to uninstall the current nVidia driver using the Windows uninstaller, then reboot without being connected to the internet before you can install the older 411.70 version. If you boot with an internet connection, Windows is going to download and install the latest driver again and you'll be behind the 8-ball again.

Well there is a problem, the 411.70 cannot be installed with the to-date window 10 version

May have to say good bye to PD14 and see what PD versions are available for permanent purchase.
I hung on to PD14 because of smart sound.

Like I said you have to remove the current nVidia driver first using the Windows uninstaller. You can't just run the 411.70 installer.

Also, SmartSound and all your paid tracks are still available in PD19 as has been discussed many times. The only thing that's changed is that new versions of PD no longer install it.

This older thread is probably the case, https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/82570.page#post_box_340136

I run 411.70 with Windows 10 20H2 so it is compatible.

I had believed earlier that all nvidia drivers created after Dec 2019 were the dch type. This driver search page implies that the standard ones are still being made. It may be easier to go back or roll back to the previous driver easily by selecting the same type. See the attached screenshot.

Thanks Tomasec for the download instruction. Installed w/o problem but still cannot use the GPU to render 264 or 265 type videos.

Was looking at PD 18 on Amazon, hope that will work and the smartsound audio too.
Only found the rental 365 version on the Cyberlink web site.


Appreciate all the help, thanks

If I got PD18 would PD 14 remain independently, both w/o interfeering? What would PD 18 bring to the table? 73s, WA6JZN ex DL9GC
