it lets you measure the time it takes your processor to encode video to different video codecs, it simply times the amount of time it takes to prep and encode a shotcut project file that has 4K video with some text overlay and some awesome music in flac by GUNSHIP

  • bench.x264.py Encoding 3840x2160p24 4K Shotcut Project using qmelt to x264 with Slow Preset and 16 CRF
  • bench.x265.py Encoding 3840x2160p24 4K Shotcut Project using qmelt to x265 with Slow Preset and 16 CRF
  • bench.vp9.py todo

Install

because mp4 is outdated, flac and mkv is the future

this should test cpu/ram and ssd/hdd and the results are in seconds

the below scores are average of 5 runs
please note that these systems are not benchmark systems and are real world
