What an answer !
You made my day !
I also just got one of the new NVIDA cards, planned on using the "hack" to run it with CS. I read a post lastnight where someone speculated that in CS6 non-supported cards wouldn't be able to be "hacked" to take advantage of GPU acceleration, I couldn't find the thread today and figured this thread seemed like a good place to ask, does anyone know if this is true or not? If so this would be more than a little disapointing. GPU accelleration works fine with non-supported cards, and without a drastic expansion in the list of supported cards I suspect many CS users will be disapointed. anyway, just wondering, what are forums for if not speculation?
Sorry for the hijack!
Well, I can stop speculating. I cannot reveal the "hackability" of CS6 until it actually gets released.
Until CS6 is released, keep to the old wisdom: 'Those who know don't tell, those who tell don't know'. No sense in speculating.
haha, fair enough:) I've never heard that bit of wisdom put so eloquently Harm! I'd read the speculation and figured you and others would know whether Adobe had accutally released anything to that effect, I guess not.
You know of course, there are three kinds of people:
- Those who make things happen (the Adobe development team),
- Those who watch things happen (the beta testers, under NDA), and
- Those who wonder what happened (the users).
Regarding the future, I ask you to look at the recent past:
When Premiere Pro CS5 came out, only about half a dozen cards provided the GPU acceleration features in Premiere Pro. With each update, we added more. Now there are more than two dozen.
From this very consistent past behavior, I ask you to guess what our future behavior will be. It's not hard to figure out. ;-)
As far as specific cards, submit a feature request so that we know what to prioritize in our testing:
I didn't know about the feature request, thanks for the link, I'll be using that!
Well, thanks all of you...
So I will wait until the release to see if something come out...
I just refresh the topic:
I am talking about After Effects, not Premiere.
I already know about the "hack" thing in premiere to enable Mercury engine...
