I've just installed Production Premium CS6 and tried out Speedgrade but had to find out that it's not working at all on my notebook.
The Preview simply is not working. After I created a timeline from a clip, it shows me the frame for half a second and then it shows only black.
The frame can be seen totally squeezed down in either the top or the bottom left corner of the preview window.
If I click in the preview window and hold down the left mouse button, I can see the frame. (Along with various numbers describing the pixel I'm clicking at)
This happens with every footage I've tried. (h.264, png-pictures, tiff sequence, foto-jpeg movs).
Intel i5 2430M
Windows 7 64bit
Intel hd3000 graphics
Hope someone can help me with this major bug.
Hi, thanks for your reply.
Just updated to the newest version, problem is still there.
Also, If I switch the vectorscope on, SG crashes immediately.
If I enable dual monitor view, so that the preview is on the second monitor, it kinda works, but the frame is shifted to the right, so that I have a black bar on the left side of the screen and the right part of the frame is cut off.
(Also, there's a problem with my wacom tablet (Have to use the pen, mouse does not work), but there's already a thread for that.)
please be aware of the system requirements for SG, feel free to contact me directly for further information.
Most of my material is uncomopressed, but I tried about any format on the planet - no dice.
Forcing downsampling didn't cut it ether.
Maybe something with the nvidia settings? I think the problem accured, after I tried external monitoring.
Bevore that it worked just fine.
I also solved it, by setting the speedgrade to "compatible" mode in the nvidia settings.
There are those 3D settings where you can assign different functions to each program you use.
Did not make sense to me in the first place, I thought it's for games only - but it worked like a charm.
Just started using SG CS6 and I have the same/similar problem but I do not have a NVidia card so those settings suggestions don't work. The laptop I am using (Core i7 8GB Windows7 Intel HD Graphics, all Windows patches, plenty of disk space...). I did try changing the 3D settings to Maximum Performance. No difference.
My symptom is different in that if I mouse-click on the blackened-display, the actual video image/stream appears. I tried your downsampling suggestion but not only did it not work, but then when I mouse-clicked on the display, the video didn't display as it did before so I went back to the original settings.
The video stream is MOV from a Canon 5D Mark II. I have lots of conversion tools if converting to a different video format would make it work.
SG highly depends on GPU power. We recommend to use a supported graphics card as mentioned above. Intel onboard graphics are not supported. Which intel HD-graphics model is installed on your machine ?
I have the same problem with an onboard Intel HD4000. Like described by another poster above, it worked when I used speedgrade for the first time, but it doesn't any more. So it's NOT a hardware issue, it's just that Speedgrade has a bug in communicating with the driver. Updated the driver, but it didn't help.
Apple Quicktime and itunes also have a problem (on Windows systems) that might help to fix this one: Once any webbrowser is running, Quicktimes and itunes do only display a black screen when showing a video (Windows 7 64Bit + Intel HD4000). BUT if you go into the quicktime settings, Advanced tab and DISABLE Direct3D video acceleration, everything works fine with the HD4000. Speedgrade shows the same bug on some Nvidia cards as described above and in other threads here in the forum, and disabling the 3D acceleration in the Nvidia driver just for Speedgrade works. So I think we've nailed the problem: Speedgrade obviously does something wrong in communicating with the graphic drivers that other software can use just fine,
Unlike Nvidia, the Intel HD4000 driver does NOT offer the option to disble 3D acceleration just for Speedgrade. It works fine with every other software. So when will the Speedgrade developers fix their error and make this works with video editing laptops so many of us use today?
It'd just a nasty, silly bug and telling us that we'll need an i7 is simply a lie. I can even playback the video just as long as I keep the left mouse button pressed on the preview monitor (not just for single frames but also for video - just keeping it pressed will play back the movie and show the picture, but also show the current cursor position and other stuff that will be displayed on top of parts of my video - displaying this stuff AND the video should use more ressource than JUST playing the video, so this bug is NOT cased by slow or "weak" hardware but by lame and unfinished work in the playback engine).
The fix with adding speedgrade in nvidia settings worked for speedgrade cs6. Now, when I moved to CC, this doesn't work for me anymore.
I have Intel HD4000 and Nvidia 525M graphics.
Could this be some stupid driver issue?
Also, I don't quite the "disabling the 3D acceleration in the Nvidia driver just for Speedgrade works". I followed the instructions from here http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1144249
Are we talking about the same thing?
