How do I enable video card (CUDA) acceleration in BDRB? I'm currently using v0.61.05, Win10.

Yes, my PC can handle 4K. Yes, my CUDA acceleration works with other programs like Adobe & FAB. So, what setting do I need to modify in BDRB or its' supporting programs to get this performance advantage???
Using a 2hr 4K file, and encoding to a high quality 25G output: FAB takes about 90mins, BDRB takes 19hrs. I really like BDRB, but the encoding time difference is Huge.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
BD Rebuilder does not uses CUDA Hardware Acceleration, software encoding provides better quality but is always slower.

BDRB doesn't no, because it's basically just a GUI for the command line tools like x264/x265 which DO use the CUDA/NVENC cores

I've never seen the x264 encoder use my nVidia CUDA GPU. I need a newer card for H.265 encoding.

That is absolutely false. BD-RB is much, much more than that. But the actual encoding itself is done by X264/X265/FRIM.

The decoding may (if set properly) uses the CUDA core, but not encoding.

I still have NVIDIA's NVENC on my "to do" list.

Oh I know it is. No offense meant, I was just simplifying it. That's all. It does a everything but encoding

Yep, it does indeed. The discussion was about encoding. Plus x264 isn't used for decoding.

This isn't meant as advertising by any means. Just as a reference, i have many tools in my video processing library (BDRB still being used, before this one even was released, my alternative (Elaborate Byte's "CloneBD" does full hw acc decoding and encoding. Shrinking a full size BD50 to BD25 on my GTX1080 takes me under 15 minutes with it. Though for my 3D discs, nothin beats BDRB (yet )

@jdobbs if you believe this post is violating your topic in any way. Feel free to edit/remove it.

BD RB could encode a disc in 15 minutes if you used the fastest settings. Is CloneBD any good or just fast?

For me 15 minutes is on "best quality" with my 1080A. If i select fastest option it's done in around 8 minutes. It's very good, and has an easy to use interface. Though offers less configuration options than BRDB.

Which is why i still use both

Just jumping in late on the NVENC/CUDA discussion... I too have other tools that support it for Decoding/Encoding. They are definitely faster than BD-RB.

With my older Nvidia cards, GPU Accelerated encoding (be it Cuda/NVENC/Qsync/whatever), was faster but didn't look as good. It seemed softer and not as clear. And the bitrates were less even when trying to use the same CRF values, etc.

With my GTX1660ti (newest gen Nvidia hardware encoder) using hardware accelerated in the other tools (like FAB) is definitely faster and for all intents and purposes the output looks as good on my TV as BD-RB. (ok, I never looked frame by frame, blew them up side by side, etc... just talking about what my eyes see on my TV and my tablets)

That being said, I still use BD-RB as my primary app for making "Movie Only" MKV's for Bluray and UHD discs. (I use FAB for the occasional DVD) I just trust it, and its UI and settings are better (more configuration + very nicely laid out). Plus it always works and always gives me great quality which is the most important to me.

Having GPU Accelerated encoding would be a plus, I can certainly understand why some want it. But I'm fine without it if BD-RB keeps working as well as it does!

Huh? This movie was shot on film @ 24fps. The frame rate should either be 24 or 23.976. It is hard to get 60fps video from 24fps film and not use 3-2 pulldown. Doing so gains nothing for 24fps movies on Blu-ray and/or UHD
