Hi, I know the hardware is supposed to work with the Mercury Playback engine as I have used it before on the same rig, the only notable change I can think of so far is that I'm now running Windows 8 and I used to run on Windows 7.
Anyway, the problem is that if I enable GPU-rendering for the Mercury Playback, my video monitor turns black and doens't display anything, also the clip-viewer and area where the project clips are stored only show black images. Sound works fine. Using software mode however, the image is fine and the program runs perfectly. Is there a fix for this?
I'm running on this hardware;
|CPU:||Intel® Core i7-3820|
|MBO:||ASUS P9X79 Deluxe|
|RAM:||Corsair Vengaence 16 GB 1600Mhz DDR3|
|MONITOR:||Acer GD245HQ 120hz|
|GPU:||Zotac GeForce 590|
|SOUND:||Creative SB X-Fi Titanium HD|
The nVIDIA GeForce 590 was added by editing the cuda_supported_cards.txt after GPUsniffing out the name and properties for my GPU. Same as I did on Windows 7 and shouldn't be a problem.
Does anyone have a fix for this? Or at least know what the problem could be?
Thanks in advance!
What is your nVidia driver version?
Right click in any open area of the Windows desktop
Select NVIDIA Control Panel from the popup window
Select SYSTEM INFORMATION at the lower left corner
Driver version should be the 1st line in Details
I have a GTX285 using driver 296.10
Many people had to update their nVidia driver to go from CS5 to CS6... so it would not surprise me if a Win7 to Win8 change also requires a driver update
All too often, folk will trust their OS, or some driver utility, to tell if they have the latest video driver. Those will be probably 6 mos. out of date. You did things correctly, and your actions bore fruit.
Glad that things are now going well for you.
