    Accelerate GPU for 3D rendering in Macbook Pro

    drloksoft Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I've started to mess around with 3D rendering on a MacBook Pro (model below). I've seen that it's possible to apply CUDA driver even for the GeForce GT750M in this post: How to Enable Premiere Mercury Playback GPU Acceleration CUDA on iMac.

      When I enable the CUDA driver by changing the textfiles, as described, my Laptop freezes. So first of all I wonder if something is wrong with the GPU, or if I simply cannot use the driver, since it has not been developed for the 750M card. Does anyone know?

       

      If the card is not defective, I still have the issue, that the rendering time for 3D content drives my crazy. Watching a preview with even just every 5th frame takes at least 3 seconds to render the frame in 1/4 resolution with 3D enabled. Do I have achance to extend the graphics power by adding a GPU via Thunderbolt2? Any suggestions are welcome. It drives me crazy so far ... I'm using After Effects CS6 11.0.4.2.
