Hi there, Bernd.
Kdenlive supports hardware encoding through custom encoding profiles.
This is my profile for hardware hevc encoding with nvidia:
properties=x265-medium f=matroska vcodec=hevc_nvenc acodec=aac crf=%quality
It would have been awesome if mlt and ffmpeg used the same format in
command lines, but this is not the case. At least they are close.
Unfortunately I only have intel cards, so I cannot test the intel vaapi
acelleration for you.
