> Hello!
> I'm transcoding/resizing some UDP live streams using CUVID and NVENC. It works but I got the feeling could be better, this is the my command line:
> ffmpeg -vsync 0 -hwaccel cuvid -c:v h264_cuvid -resize 1280x720 -drop_second_field 1 -i udp://
> -crf 30 -c:a -c:v hevc_nvenc -profile:v main -pass 2 -rc vbr -maxrate 3M -f mpegts udp://
> I'd like to ask for some expert advice on what could be added or suppressed to improve it.

Aren't there new NVENC options nowadays in the new SDK ?
Eg presets have changed significantly, such as -preset p7 and -multipass fullres

Perhaps see Video SDK here ?
especially page 12 of
