Adobe Media Encoder not using all of i9-9900k

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if there is anything I can do to make AfterFX/Media Encoder utilize more than just 16% of my CPU (Intel core i9-9900k, overclocked at 5.0ghz).

The video I am encoding uses the median effect and DigitalAnarchy's samurai effect. However, only 14-16% (on avg) of my cpu is being utilized.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for any help possible.

So I just googled does Adobe Media Encoder use CPU or GPU and everything points to GPU as the default renderer?

Depends on your filter chain really. If you use an effect that is CPU-bound and single-threaded, that's it.

 

Make sure the problem you think you're having is the one you are having by just straight using Adobe Media Encoder to convert the input video and see if the CPU usage is the same.
