I think I may have solved the problem. GPU Usage is still really low but buffering is much better after creating a proxy for the video stipe.
I am having an issue rendering & skimming through video on my machine. I have a 7th gen i5, 8GB ram, SSD & an AMD Rx550 GPU.
The problem is that when I try to render video it is really slow. Skimming through the timeline is also slow (around 18 fps @ 1080p).
When I look at the GPU usage in wattsman it is literally at idle. Sometimes it goes up to like 300+ mhz which is still nothing.
What I have already done
- I have gone into settings and enabled OpenCL computing and set the RX550 as the device.
- Changed ram to use 4000.
- Changed from blender render to Cycles Render (this improved performance a bit but still the GPU doesn't seem to be used. - Changed
I am out of ideas on what the problem is. I would appreciate any help you guys can offer.
Thank you in advance!
