Actual CPU´S that will be used: 0

Apr 4, 2012 5:00 AM

I have no idea what I can do. Maybe someone can help me.

 

-I7 2600k

-ATI 6970

-8GB Ram

 

If I want to turn on Multiprocessing in AE I get the message:

 

 

Installed CPU´S (processor cores): 8

Actual CPU´S that will be used: 0

 

I can change all these settings but AE still does not accept my CPU´s.

Please help me

    What are your RAM settings? What settings for OpenGL? Also, what are your settings for MediaCache and Disk Cache? In addition, is there proper access to your temp folder? MP rendering uses and produces temporary files. If there is no access, it may simply refuse to ever work...

    As Mylenium says, we need to know what your RAM settings are. Post a screenshot of your Memory & Multiprocessing preference settings.

     

    You should read/ watch these materials, too:

    What operating system are we exactly looking at? The retro style of the dialogs doesn't bode well and could be related...

    ...Sometimes I got the message:

     

    "AE needs more than 2 frames to playback" I thought I can solve this problem by enabling multiprocessing....

     

    ....My question is: It is generally possible for me to activate multiprocessing with only 8 gb RAM?

     

     

    If you UN-check the box that says, "Accelerate Effects Using Open GL", the error message regarding 2 frames may very well be a thing of the past.  Rendering with Open GL tends to really mess things up.

     

    At work, I have a dual quad-core machine with 8 gigs of memory.  I rarely, if ever, enable multiprocessing.

    At home, I have a dual quad-core machine with 24 gigs of memory.  Multiprocessing works fine on it.

    I changed the style for a better performance. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

     

    Actually it has the adverse effect, since Win 7 uses a compeltely different drawing native method and needs to emulate these old GDI styles. In fact this could be part of the problem. HT or not doesn't really matter. The current coreXi and Xeon processors have much better TurboBoost and can handle this just fine. For many effects and third-party plug-ins it doesn't matter, eitehr. Either they are only using 2 threads or they use their own custom infrastructure for accelerating their operations.
