Final Cut needs 128mb of VRAM
on Oct 7, 2011 at 2:41:51 am

I've been using Final Cut Pro consistently since I got this computer and suddenly today when I click on it I get message that says "This system does not meet the following minimum requirements. Final Cut Pro requires your system have 128mb of VRAM you only have 0mb of VRAM. Your system requires a Quartz extreme capable Video Card." I've had this computer almost a year and have been running FCP on it. Why would it suddenly say that? I have duel Quad Core Intel Xeon Processors, 32gb of Ram. I have two ATI Radeon HD 2600XT video cards with 256mb of VRAM total. So I know my system is set up right. Any suggestions? Am I going to have to reinstall? Is there anywhere on the Mac that I can allocate the VRAM to the proper amount? Thank you.

The 2 graphics cards you have are your problem. FCP likes a single graphics card.

Turns out that someone had swapped the monitor port on the Mac, It has a Blackmagic card and it likes to be in slot 1 of the graphics card only or it won't see the BM one.
