The future of AMD Encoder: HEVC on RX 4xx, Pre-Pass, VBAQ and more!

AMD released version 1.4 of the AMF SDK back in January and I quickly got to work familiarizing myself with the changes and new sample tools. I did some rather extreme tests with the encoder, which resulted in me reporting 8 Issues to the AMF Issue Tracker – mostly GPU crashes or encoding failures. But with that out of the way, Patrons have now finally received the first official pre-release build, just as I promised back in December 2016. But what’s actually inside? Read more

Interview with K-Gaming about the AMD Encoder Plugin (German/Deutsch)

The Encoder Plugin has finally reached 1.3.0!

It has been a long road from 1.1.2 to 1.3.0 now, even going through two complete rewrites and a huge amount of pre-releases and release candidates.

Special thanks go out to my Patreon supporters:┬áKytos, nwgat.ninja, Markus, vektorDex, SneakyJoe, Kristian Kirkesaether (Sorry, I don’t know how you do the messed up ae), AJ, Jeremy Nieth, John Difool, Nico Thato and DaOrgest.
