Swap the encoder to H265 or ProRes and then export the clip again. That should fix the issue.

Thanks! I don’t know how to get ProRes but will try a google search. Cheers!


Thanks for the help! ProRes might be only on Apple computers. Various youtube tutorials have said “use ProRes it’s the best” There might be a third party work around to get ProRes on a PC but that’s a bit beyond my skill level. Thanks again!

Years past those more knowledgeable said “get and Apple even if you only use it to edit video.” At the time, the goal was to make 4K video with Final Cut Pro and 50% of video was edited on FCP. There may have been a detour due to big business shenanigans but FCP is back?
I’m shooting 4K 60 on action cameras and 1080 120 on DSLR’s. Some of my videos have one view on youtube so it makes no sense to spend $10K on a system. The default on the NVIDIA card is gaming and after changing the settings for processing the computer runs 2X to 3X faster but last attempt at stabilization only on a two minute edit was going to take 55 hours. Of course it crashed out after tying the computer up for twelve hours. What’s a good Apple computer for a hobbyist editing video? Thanks!

I work on a PC and can use ProRes in Video AI and in my video editing apps without an issue.

You can upgrade a PC cheaper and easier than making the swap to a full apple system. Just installing some more RAM and a better GPU card will increase your performance in Video AI and in your video editing apps. Check newegg.com for sales and discounts on parts.

Thanks! The closest codec on my list is quicktime:


OK! Sorry! Just found ProRes in Topaz Video AI. Was looking for it in Davinci Resolve. Will give it a try. Thanks again!

If you want it in Resolve then you can download Voukoder and it will add more options for export using FFMPEG, which is what Video AI is using in the backend.

I don’t have a Mac. this screenshot is from my Windows PC

Having effectively the same problem.

I load a source video, I select the “Upscale to FHD” preset, I click “Export” … it takes a few seconds, then presents me with the “Resolution too large for encoder. Change encoder and or container to support requested resolution.” error message.

Source video:
640x480 @ 29.97 fps
MKV container, video encoded with V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC High@L3
VBR CFR YUV4:2:0 8-Bit BT.709 Progressive Scan

Video AI settings:
Default “Upscale to FHD” Preset without changes

In “Preview & Export Settings” I have selected
Output Type: Video
Codec: AV1
Profile: -
Target Bitrate: Auto
Audio Mode: Copy
Container: mp4
Apply LUT: -

I have an Intel CPU with Iris iGPU plus an add-on Intel ARC 750 GPU that I use for QSV AV1 Deep Link Hyper Encoding in HandBrake without problems. (Hardware accelerated PCIe GPU+CPU iGPU combined AV1 encoding)

In Menu > Preferences > Processing, I have set “AI Processor” to “All GPUs” with 100% Max Memory and 2 Max Processes.

I have tried adjusting the Target Bitrate and the Container, but all to no avail. I always get the “too large for container” nonsense. My system can encode AV1 to MP4 at 2160p/60 just fine, without even breaking a sweat. So what gives?

Please don’t tell me to “switch codec”, because that’s not going to solve the issue. The idea of having Deep Link Hyper Encoding capable hardware for AV1 is not to ignore it and fry the CPU with software encoding using some other codec. If HandBrake can do it and Video AI can’t, it’s not the codec, methinks. :slight_smile:

My system:
Windows 11 Pro 23H2
Intel i5 14500 (plain, non K, non F) with UHD 770 iGPU
Sparkle A750 ARC PCIe GPU
2x16 GB DDR5 running at 4800 MHz
Separate WD Black NVME drives for source read and output write

Thanks! I’m a complete novice with the same problem, and was afraid I spent my money on an incompatible video card or something. Happily up and running now.
