Hardware Accelerated Encoding for 10-bit 4:2:0 HEVC on macOS

Export times for your 10-bit 4:2:0 HEVC footage are significantly faster on Mac Intel and M1 systems.


Select HEVC (H.265) from the Format drop-down under Export Settings to enable this option. Then under the Video tab, go to Encoding Settings. If the system supports hardware encoding, the Performance field will be set to Hardware Encoding. Set the profile level to Main 10. Setting it to Software Encoding will disable hardware encoding, and Adobe Media Encoder won't use hardware to encode the media.

 The minimum OS version required for this feature to be enabled is macOS Big Sur (version 11).

Hardware Accelerated Encoding for 10-bit 4:2:0 HEVC for AMD

Export times for your 10-bit 4:2:0 HEVC footage are significantly faster on supported AMD hardware.

To enable this option, select HEVC (H.265) from the Format drop-down under Export Settings. Then under the Video tab, go to Encoding Settings. If the GPU card supports HW encoding, the Performance field will be set to Hardware Encoding. Set the profile level to Main 10. Setting it to Software Encoding will disable hardware encoding and Adobe Media Encoder won't use AMD hardware to encode the media. 

 If you have an AMD GPU card that supports 10-bit 4:2:0 HEVC encode on your Windows machine, you will be able to use this feature.

HEVC 10-bit is enabled in Navi10 and up: Consumer: RX 5XXX, RX 6XXX, Pro: W 5XXX, W 6XXX. The minimum driver version required is 21.10.1. Its corresponding Windows Driver Store version for Win 10/11 is 30.0.13025.1000.
