CC2017 and GPU Acceleration
on Jan 7, 2017 at 7:59:29 pm

Reinstall of CC brought me up to 2017 (HDD crash and failed backup, so it was a 'clean' install, and I could not revert to CC 2016). I also have CS6 installed.

Anyway, my GeForce GTX 660 Ti is now no longer working for Premiere CC2017. It was never truly supported, but I did the various hacks to get it working in CS6 and CC2016. Never encountered a problem from it (as far as I know). Interestingly, I can get it working/recognized for After Effects CC2017, but not Premiere.

My understanding is that the media encoder uses the 'settings' from Premiere, so it seems with CC2017 I am downgraded to software rendering. Ugh!

So I have three choices:
1) Hope that adobe adds the "enable untested GPU for CUDA" option in Premiere like they did for after effects. Unlikely, since one is for ray-traced 3D rendering and the other is for general video rendering.
2) Keep using CS6. That's okay, but I hate to lose out on new features. That would also limit my interoperability with AE CC2017.
3) Change my video card to one that is supported by Adobe.

I did some research for Option #3. It seems like the majority of the cards are fairly old. I didn't look at every card, but the newest one I found was the AMD FirePro W5100, which came out in late 2015. It's also not CUDA but OpenCL

Does anyone know of the most recent card on that list? If I'm forced to buy a new video card, I want to at least get one that is as new as possible.

Also, doesn't it seem odd that there are no new nVidia cards? I know they switched their CUDA architecture around, so it is not the same as the older cards, but they do have OpenCL which should be a 'standard'. Is adobe trying to get out of GPU support? I can't imagine everyone eventually being pushed to software rendering.

Thanks,
Pauley

BTW, I found a recent thread (https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/3/993335#993418) that implies this is a 'well worn question' but I did not see any other relevant threads in my search.

did you set nvidia control panel to premiere.exe always use? what does gpusniffer say?
go into the bios setup. From there, disable the "iGPU" feature
installed geforce experience?
deleted preferences and restart?

Hi Chris,
Thanks for responding. The nVidia control panel is set for 'Auto' (or something like that), but it shows my card under it with a check mark since I only have that card.

gpusniffer finds the card correctly. I added my card to the "cuda_supported_cards.txt" file, and this has worked for AE (different txt file changed) but not for Premiere, as it has in the past.

I'll check out the iGPU setting next time I reboot.

At the end of the day, though, I think Adobe just 'forced' the cuda support to the approved cards and removed the ability to manually add the cards (which was never supported). I find it odd they allowed it for AE (in fact they made it a bit easier with a checkbox to enable unsupported cards), but drew a hard line for Premiere.

You also have the option of installing 2015 under the previous versions tab of the CC installer even if you did a clean install.

Hello Neal,
I did not realize that. Thank you for pointing that out. I'm sure adobe tracks that type of stuff, so that may be a way to show a minor protest.

Don't hold your breath waiting for them to track any of it. It can be very frustrating.

is this thread still unresolved? I would elevate it to adobe video queue support if so. Please let us know either way so it may benefit others.
