    ATI 5770 GPU acceleration almost works

    funkytwig Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I heard a lot of peole have managed to get the above card working with GPU acceleration by adding it to the opencl_supported_cards.txt file. I tried this and managed to select GPU acceperation from the drop down on Project->Project Settings->Genral. Problem is I can't see any video in the Sourch or Program windows.  If I turn GPU acceleration off it works (but has to render titles).

       

      I know this is not suported but was wondering if anyone else is having simeler problems and if so if they have found a solution.  I would but a nother graphics cards but I dont hink there are any that will work on my macpro1,1.

       

      Regards

      Ben

          I'm only guessing here, but the 5770 isn't a particularly powerful card, and only has 1GB of VRAM on it.  That may not be enough for what you're asking it to do.
