Can AMD APP (VCE) encode in higher chroma subsampling?

Can it encode in for example 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 chroma subsampling instead of 4:2:0? Can it record 10 bit videos? Thanks.

PS If it can, is it already any software that utilises it?

Re: Can AMD APP (VCE) encode in higher chroma subsampling?

4:2:0 chroma is supported, 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 are not supported.

I am checking if it can record 10 bit video and will get back to you.EDIT

EDIT

8 Bit only.

Re: Can AMD APP (VCE) encode in higher chroma subsampling?

Thank you. I am a bit disappointed tho. This card is so powerful, can run all games on almost highest settings but this hardware encoding has much worse color than the original 4:4:4 (my monitor works in that mode). It's still awesome that it can record 120 fps without almost any framerate drop. I'm waiting for x265 software to record at 240 fps. I haven't seen any yet. Do You have any info about that?

PS Hmm... I wonder if x265 will support better chroma sampling and higher color.

I understand.

Unfortunately i cannot talk about anything we have officially announced, I'm sure you understand.

Actually official x265 encode was announced on amd.com.

I've had some similar questions,.. since this is such an old thread, could you perhaps elaborate now?
