Hardware Accelerated Video Encode

This is another follow up to my previous post asking media developers for input. Last time I asked about the importance of HW accelerated video decode, but actually encode acceleration would be a far better place to drive performance for video editing or transcoding. The challenges I&aposve heard from developers has been the lack of a standardized interface to do so. Yes decode interface exists in DXVA, but not for encode. I&aposm curious how much of an issue is this for developers? If a standard API existed that offered simple access to HW accelerated encode across a broad range of hardware, would developers be interested? What considerations or capabilities (like pre-processing for example) should be supported? Let me know your thoughts.
