Was this ever working? It's probably a driver problem. What are the system specs and OS?
It worked at one point in time.
- Processor 2 x 3.06 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
- Memory 32 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC
- Graphics NVIDIA Quadro 4000 2048 MB
- Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63b)
I don't know how to reinstall a driver for mac. Do I just run the installer again?
We've seen this in cases in which a different application has installed a different CUDA library and the wrong one is being used. What other applications have you ever installed on this computer that use CUDA? The CUDA SDK? Other professional video applications that use CUDA?
There were some files under developer/NVIDIA. When I searched for CUDA, I found a purple link to the SDK. I removed those files on my computer, and downloaded the latest NVIDIA driver for my videocard, and all is well!
Thanks for your help!
I have the same problem but I could not find the solution. Where did you find the "purple link"?
thanks fo help
"purple link" meaning, a site that I had visited before on the search engine results, verifying that I had indeed downloaded the SDK before. I had to re-read my post several times to figure out what the heck I was talking about.
I would recommend uninstalling all CUDA libraries you can find and try After Effects again. If After Effects errors and requests a CUDA installation, you know you have removed them all. Then install the latest CUDA.
Best of luck!
Fast Draft doesn't use CUDA; it uses OpenGL.
Well I do not even know what the CUDA is.
I just want the damn After Effects to work
It had worked once – but since some time when I try to open these files the AE crashes.
