after effects and gpu
on Jul 28, 2012 at 2:33:07 pm

i have two graphics cards - one GT120 and one quadro 4000 - for davinci resolve i have to connect my screens to the GT120 in order to use the cuda card for image processing. Is it the same in after effects? How do i tell ae to use the nice card instead of the crappy one?

I think it should do that automatically since the GT 120 is not an approved card so AE should ignore it and use the approved quadro card. To verify which card it's using go to the preferences>previews>gpu information and be sure "ray-tracing" is set to "gpu" not "cpu" and it will show the card info.

thanks - is this ae6 you have? i don't get exactly what you say, but get openGL info, and there it ways the quadro card - however openGL is not enabled. Also, when using optical flares, if i tick the use GPU box, ae crashes....i'm on ae5 btw...

Yes, only CS6 has the cuda option in AE.

If you are using the Quadro 4000 you must disable the Use GPU option. Folks at Videocopilot are working on this issue right now.

good to hear (so it's actually not just andrew kramer saying "we" and pretending there are more people around?)
