After some years without I'm getting back to video editing... I already
searched quite a lot but it's really hard to find "realiable" information, so I
decided to ask here:
- It seems that hw accel is not available in kdenlive
- As far as I understand kdenlive uses mlt which uses ffmpeg. ffpmeg can use
hardware acceleration for de- and encoding. So is mlt to "blame" for missing hw
accel. in kdenlive?
- There has been a patch (bug 378832) "use of vaapi in transcoding and
rendering" which seems to tackle my question. But what did it really change -
/ what is it for? I didn't find more info on that and it's in kdenlive 17.04,
while Debian is at 16.12. and before I compile myself I'd like to get more info.
- Furthermore I found a thread on this list back in April "kdenlive and mlt
nvenc enabled" covering the same topic but for nvidia instead of Intel
graphics; unfortunately nobody reported back if it really works. For me it
reads like the patch I mentioned above.
So regarding the current state of hw accel in kdenlive I'm still uncertain.
Thank you for your inputs.
