Ray-Tracing on AMD GPU in AE CC
on Jul 6, 2013 at 12:42:17 am

Hi everyone!

I have After Effects CC and I heard that it supports OpenGL acceleration for ray-tracing. My computer has an AMD 7770 Ghz Edition GPU and After Effects still doesn't allow me to accelerate with it. Can anyone help? This was the main reason I upgraded to CC.

Thanks in advance!

I am sorry to have to tell you, Luke, but you heard wrong. Ae's ray-tracer is only GPU-accelerated by CUDA on specific NVIDIA cards. Without a supported (or unsupported but manually added) NVIDIA card, the ray-tracer will run unaccelerated on the CPU.

Starting with CS6, the way Ae draws to the screen is OpenGL-accelerated, as are fast previews and the Cartoon effect. This is unchanged in CC.

See GPU (CUDA, OpenGL) features | CC, CS6 [link] for more.

Can you suggest some cost effective card to run AE......My mac early 2011 with AMD radeon 1GB is not working because of using Creative CLoud Adobe's AE. Thinking of assembling a window based desktop.....
