Difference in AE file Imported into PPro with MPE in Hardware vs. Software Mode

Mar 29, 2013 7:14 AM

I am getting an undesireable result when importing AE files into a PPro Sequence with MPE in hardware mode. The top (or left) pic is accurate, with MPE in Software mode (nice soft glow). In the bottom pic, MPE is in Hardware mode. Note the undesireable (and inaccurate) harder glow. These AE files are output in an uncompressed AVI with alpha channel. The pics below were imported into PPro with the AE file placed over a black clip in PPro (Video Layer 1=Black. Video Layer 2= AE text w/Alpha). Any thoughts, or better yet, solutions?!

    CUDA acceleration does process some things differently.  You'll need to create your graphics with CUDA turned on so you can adjust appropriately.  That means in PP, not AE.


    Or, just turn CUDA acceleration off.

    No.  The processing is the same regardless of the card.  The only difference the card makes is speed, and the Titan probably doesn't offer sufficient improvement to justify it's price.  (At least not where CUDA acceleration is concerned.)

    I'm curious if leaving GPU acceleration on and doing a "Sequence/Render Entire Work Area" would fix this. If it does, then this would likely be a faster render than the render required for software only.

    They won't make a difference.
