Google killed 4K H.264 encodes for VP9, you shouldn't be surprised they're killing 8K VP9 encodes for AV1, bandwidth consumption is enormous for Youtube.
This will force laggards like Apple to adopt AV1 just like they did with VP9 support finally in Apple products this year, 3 years after Google stopped 4K H.264 encodes for VP9.

The bigger challenge is that reality is killing 8K video because of the limits of human perception. I challenge you to find video content that looks better encoded at native 8K than downscaled to 4K at the same bitrate when viewed at enough distances that the edges of the screen are at a minimally acceptable viewing angle. No one in Hollywood is doing any post production in 8K. Heck, most visual effects are still being done in 2K for cost/speed reasons, and because 2K looks just fine if there's some motion blur and/or grain.

And with everyone working from home, even experimenting in 8K is nigh impossible. There literally aren't any monitors that are 8K, HDR, and have DisplayPort. Monitoring 8K HDR means using a (WAY too big for a desk) TV and a $3K AJA Kona 5 with experimental and finicky HDMI 2.1 firmware.

Yes (sadly).

[edit]
At --cpu-used=4 using VBR, it works also in one-pass mode in some cases. But at other speeds or in CRF, it works in 2-pass only.

See this code.

Thanks for clarifying. But I'm confused. Why was it changed? Was it not working correctly before?

I meant: yes, it was always the case. Sorry for the confusing answer.
