0 VRAM/No Quartz Extreme
on Oct 15, 2010 at 11:33:55 pm

Hi,

I just upgrade my graphics card from the Nvidia GT 7300 to a Radeon HD 5770.

It works great when I use it in bootcamp on my windows side. It even displays graphics properly on my mac side, but when I try to open up Final Cut Pro I get the error messages:

Final Cut Pro requires that your system have a Quartz Extreme capable video card.

Final Cut Pro requires that your system have 128 MB of VRAM; this system has only 0MB of VRAM.

I tried trashing preferences. I tried disk utility to repair permissions. System Utility recognizes that the graphics card has 1024 MB of VRAM, but Final Cut Wont. I can't open it because of this.

Any help?

Thanks!

- James

1) change the port on the graphics card your monitor is connected to

upgrade to FCP 7, this was an issue with FCP 6.x versions.

I have final cut 7. I'd have to get an adapter to change the port, I can try that on monday. Here's an idea i've been toying with. I'm running Leopard, what if I upgraded to Snow Leopard and downloading the graphics update for it?

We experienced this issue, and the SL Graphics Update fixed it.
