Can the AMD Radeon HD 6750 card on imac support ray tracing in after effects cs6? If so how?

May 5, 2013 1:12 PM

This card is integrated on my computer and I don't want to have to purchase a whole new computer to enjoy the ray tracing feature. Is it possible and how? I'm workng with an imac withe a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5. Multicore 64 bit processor. Please help!

    GPU acceleration of the ray-traced 3D renderer requires CUDA and therefore an NVIDIA card.

     

    See this page for details:

    Your link to AMD doesn't mention AEs raytraced mode with any word.

    Have you actually read the full page??? Any raytracing here???

     

    AMD boosts a variety of Adobe After Effects GPU-accelerated features:

    • Hardware BlitPipe—Hardware Accelerated Composition, Layer and Footage Panels
      The Hardware BlitPipe GPU-acceleration feature is engaged when using color management output simulation on the screen and the exposure control in the viewer panels.
    • Cartoon Effect
      The dedicated cartoon effect gives live footage the look of cell animation quickly and easily.
    • OpenGL Swap Buffer
      The OpenGL swap buffer feature accelerates the drawing of pixels to the screen. This process, which can result in a performance bottleneck with larger displays, is made fast and smooth with AMD graphics hardware.

    You took that Video Copilot thread out of context; that part about the AMD cards was about Premiere Pro.

     

    See my previous response on this thread. It contains all of the information that you need on this matter. Klaus is also giving you the correct information.
