NOTE: Unsure of what the proper tag for this is... There's somewhat of a category gap when it comes to video production, which is quite ironic since the forums essentially have the L1T YouTube channel at its heart...
I'm using OBS on Manjaro 17 with an i5 4400, GTX 745, and 16GB of DDR3.
Go fuck yourself
NVENC is shit, I know.
I'm going to start off by saying that I know that CPU x264 is going to yield better quality overall, but at a higher cost to performance. NVENC is going to lighten the load on my CPU at the cost of quality and even more so, the cost of filesize.
You're a cunt
Bitrate OVER 9000!
In all honesty, bitrate is the primary concern here. With NVENC, I can push the bitrate to an insane amount with absolutely no impact to performance whereas H264 will fuck shit hard. My question is in regards to the plateau point, where NVENC bitrate will no longer yield any quality improvements and just become a monster for disk space. I've been throwing sliders up and down, but I'm sure there's specs on this? I've currently got the bitrate at 28,000 and have not noticed any improvement at 48,000 whereas H264 will be significantly clearer at 48,000 and even more so at 72,000 bitrate.
