As stated at https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-video-codec-sdk#NVDECFeatures, NVDEC only supports the YUV420 pixel format, so I can’t put my numbers in RGB – Image files and encode them.

Use -pix_fmt yuv420p to get ffmpeg to output images with that pixel
format, if you'd like to add an intermediate step for ffmpeg to
process your images.
I am most likely taking an overly simplistic approach to your question.
