H.264 Intel Quick Sync Video (Hardware Acceleration, Low Size + High Quality + High Speed)

Bandicut supports the hardware accelerated Intel Quick Sync h.264 encoder which allows you to cut, trim, crop, split videos in high speed with excellent quality. If you have a new Intel CPU (i3/5/7), you can cut videos faster than the H.264 Software Encoder.


  • If you have a system equipped with Windows 7 or a later OS and a new Intel CPU (i3/5/7), you can use the embedded hardware acceleration function to cut and convert videos "in higher speed than H.264 Software Encoder".
  • You need to enable the embedded graphic functionality of your CPU for the hardware acceleration. Please refer to the following.
