How To Enable GPU Cuda in Adobe CS6 for Windows

Jul 11, 2012 8:23 PM

I quote from Vimeo


A lot of folks were complaining about how most GPU accelerated graphics cards are not supported in Adobe's new Premiere Pro and After Effects CS6 applications.

Thankfully there is a simple and quick fix that allows you to enable your GPU videocard to be supported that makes the editing experience so much better.

I take six mintes to show you how to complete this on a Mac."


Here is the link




Can we do the same/similar for Windows based computers?


My video card is NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT

    For "some" others, with at least 1Gig of video ram, use the nVidia Hack - which is a simple entry in a "supported cards" file... I do not have your card, so I do not know if the hack will work for you

    Please help me with this.


    I have an Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT. I've updated the video card driver to the last version, did the same with the CUDA driver. Opened the Program Files->Adobe->Premiere CS6->cuda_supported_cards.txt. and also in opencl_supported_cards i introduced the name of my card GeForce 9600M as indicated in CMD command.


    No results, When opening the project, I can not choose the video rendering and Playback preferences. I restarted the AP CS6 to it's settings, and the result remains the same.


    What am I doing wrong? Please help.

    Does that card/chip have 1Gig of dedicated video memory?

    Well, it says it has 512 mb memory with up to 2 GB dedicated memory. So, the answer may be "no" I think. But the topic starter managed to somehow start the CUDA on his notebook.

    Then hardware MPE is out of the question, due to lack of dedicated VRAM.
