GPU Rendering

Hey Paul.

There are ways to use GPU rendering in the output. However you typically
exchange quality for speed & size.

ie: rendering out at q=26 on software looks better than rendering out at
q=26 on hardware.

This is because the software encoders are more mature and can use features
in the CPU that the GPU cannot.

Here is a profile that I was using to test nvenc:

properties=x264-medium f=mp4 vcodec=h264_nvenc acodec=aac g=120
crf=%quality ab=%audiobitrate+'k'

Kind regards,
