    Adobe AE, GTX 780 Ti CUDA ray trace support?

    K3AT

      Adobe AE, GTX 780 Ti CUDA ray trace support? When will this card be on the white supported list?

       

      Thanks

          No, it's not on the list:

          Read this so that you know what that actually means:

          If you want to request that a specific card be tested and supported, you can do so here:

            Thank you, I have found this working for me.

             

            preference for bypassing whitelist for GPU acceleration of ray-traced 3D renderer

            In After Effects CS6 (11.0) and CC (12.0), the GPU Information dialog box has a Ray-tracing menu from which the user can choose GPU or CPU. If the installed hardware is not on the list of tested and supported GPUs, the GPU menu item is disabled (grayed out) and below the menu is this text: “GPU not available – incompatible device or display driver”.

             

            In After Effects CC (12.1), we have added a checkbox: “Enable untested, unsupported GPU for CUDA acceleration of ray-traced 3D renderer.”

             

            Enabling this checkbox will do a couple of things:

             

            After Effects will use the GPU-accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer with any GPU that meets minimum requirements (which include 1GB of VRAM and CUDA 5.0).

            The text “GPU not available – incompatible device or display driver” will change to “Unsupported GPU enabled for CUDA acceleration” if the GPU meets the minimum requirements but is not on the whitelist. If the GPU doesn’t meet the minimum requirements, the text remains as the original.

            In the CUDA section at the bottom of the GPU Information dialog box, “(unsupported)” is added to the Devices entry if the installed hardware isn’t on the whitelist but is enabled.

            When the user enables this preference, a dialog box appears that tells the user that using an untested and unsupported GPU is something that they do at their own risk and that technical support is only provided for supported configurations.
