DCP Render rate

PostMon Aug 27, 2018 8:53 pm

Using Resolve 15 to create a 4K DCP from a UHD ProRes444 I am getting about 5-8 frames per second render speed, is this something normal on a Mac cheese grate with two Titan Xp connected in an Xpander chassis?

The wavelet encoding for DCP is very CPU intensive, your capable GPU won't help much.
Seems reasonable, the cheesegrater's XEONs are not really recent any more. Actually, an i7 iMac might be faster.

Thanks Uli,

Our Trashcan doesn't offer any improvement, in fact it performs worse. I'm on a 2 x 3.46 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon and it's our most powerful computer here. It's a real shame DCP encoding doesn't tap the GPU.
