Ifyou ever wanted to edit videos entirely through scripting, I have a dope guide for AviSynth+ to get you started: https://cygnatus.com/guide/video-editing.
Also includes a down- and upsampling guide that gets the job done with a single function call.
Hardware Unboxed has a great video showing you just how much performance is bottlenecked by GPU: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFwiDlmp1hg.
tl;dr: At 1080p, with a GTX 1060 6GB or below, a newer CPU isn’t going to make much of a difference.
Even with a 1070, the difference between CPUs is often only a matter of 10 FPS.
So don’t always assume a new CPU will fix your performance issues when your GPU might be the bottleneck.

Updated my aging Livestreamer guide with instructions for how to make mpv your fave Twitch stream YouTube player: https://cygnatus.com/guide/mpv/.

GTA5 RP is blowing up. On Twitch, the community managed to raise CAD 26,000 ($19,000) for the most popular RPer … who happens to be a retired cop roleplaying as the server’s Trooper Eli Thompson.
The money is to help set him up as a bona fide Twitch streamer with hardware, studio, and everything, and it looks like he’ll be making some nice pocket change with $3.5 per subscription on top of the donation support and cut of the virtual Twitch currency called Bits.
