For a university project I need to make a video and edit evrything together. A few weeks back I had to make a 7 minute video which rendered in about 1.5 hours (about 4 fps). Now I needed to make an 11 minute video, however this is taking way longer to render. currently it is at 8.5 hours and is expected to take another 4 hours (currently averaging around 1 fps). There is almost no GPU usage, not a single core is maxed out and I am just utterly frustrated that most of my resources are not being used.
Intel i8700k, IGPU enabled
Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti, Game Ready Drivers
32 GB of DDR4 2666 MHz RAM
960 EVO 1TB SSD where it is writing to, ST2000LM015-2E8174 Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD where the material it is editing together is stored.
The video I am rendering is a 1080p 60 fps, HVEC format. It says in the overview that hardware encoding is enabled, though I have my doubts about it. Here is a screenshot of the export overview:
Any help is appreciated!
