IMO AV1 transcoding from other formats, intermediate or uncompressed, 
and for AV1 playback yes. The increasing interest in the 5 years newer 
AV1 vs HEVC is royalty free, some higher compression at the same or 
better quality for video streaming or file download.  (AV1 decoding is 
to be supported on high end smartphones).
