Ever since I upgraded to Windows 8, I have not been able to use hardware acceleration properly on my GeForce GTX 560 Ti. I previously had the card working fine (using the cuda_supported_cards.txt 'hack'). Now Premiere Pro CS6 allows me to select hardware acceleration, but it won't actually render. It either freezes at 0%, or it spits out an "error compiling movie" error.
I'm using Premiere CS6 6.0.2, nVidia driver 310.70, 8GB RAM. I have followed one suggestion to edit the nVidia settings for Premiere Pro.exe, changing the "mixed-GPU acceleration" to "compatibility mode". But that didn't make a difference.
I have tried an older nVidia Windows 8 driver, but that didn't change anything either.
Anyone have a suggestion?
Update to 6.0.3.
Here's a list of bug fixes in 6.0.3:
How would this update help my video card problem? Are there other fixes that Adobe didn't list?
I don't know for sure that it will solve this issue. It's just a good idea to be running the latest version, especially whenever you're having an issue.
