    Latest retina Macbook with GT750M - CUDA not available?


      How can I get AE (trial version) to use my Nvidea GT750m in my late 2013, 15 inch macbook pro (16 GB, all options ticked) for raytracing and other tasks AE can assign to the GPU? I am using the trial version of AE because I need to see it work before I get a year contract.


      I would assume that the latest version of AE should run flawlessly on the latest and highest specced retina Macbook pro?


      On start-up I get the warning that ray tracing is not enabled because it requires Cuda 5.0 or later.


      Also, under preferences/preview/GPU information AE claims that I do only have CUDA 1.0 installed.


      But I have the latest Cuda driver (5.5.47) installed. GPU driver is: 8.24.9 310.40.25f01


      My macbook runs Mavericks (OS 10.9.2)



      Under preferences/preview/GPU information the following information is displayed: 


      Fast Draft: Available

      Texture Memory: 818 MB [...]

      Ray-tracing: CPU [GPU option is greyed out]

      [enable untested, unsupported GPU for CUDA ... greyed out]

      (GPU not available - incompatible device or Cuda driver)




      [...] Device: Nvidea Geforce GT 750M Open GL Engine,

      Version: 2.1 NVIDEA-8.24.9 310.40.25f01

      Total Memory: 2.0 GB

      Shader Model: -



      Driver version: 1.0 (5.0 or later required) [Note: this is wrong I have the latest CUDA driver installed - AE cannot see it, though]

      Devices: -


      Any advice is greatly appreciated!
