Hi there, I’m new to Topaz Video AI and so far enjoy using it!
I however did notice something odd and wasn’t sure if it was normal. I have Topaz Video AI 3.1.1 running on my Windows 11 machine and M1 Max MacBook Pro.
For the same 3 minute clip with the same model (Proteus with some parameters), H264 High mkv, Auto Bitrate and Auto Audio settings it’s just over a 1gig in size rendered on Mac and 280mb in size on Windows. I’ve generated a few times on each machine and get those results consistently.
I know on Windows it shows H264 High (NVIDIA) and on M1 is just H264 High for the Encoder, is the NVIDIA encoder just able to compress more than the non-nvidia encoder? Is that normal or is it a bug? I’m trying to figure out how the best approach would be to generate similar file sizes on the mac for the same quality.
