    Rendering does not utilize GPU

    drloksoft Level 1


      when pre-rendering my composition, the GPU is not utilized at all.

      The CPU is running on 50%, and the RAM is being utilized by 11 of 16GB. The Disk is running at 5% of it's speed. However, the displayed framerate is at 9fps in the preview mode.


      In preferences I've enabled mercury transmit and I've set the Ray-tracing to GPU with the following settings.


      Fast Draft:Available
      Texture Memory:4000.00 MB
      Ray-tracing:GPU (unsupported)

      Unsupported GPU enabled for CUDA acceleration


      Vendor:NVIDIA Corporation
      Device:GeForce GTX 980 Ti/PCIe/SSE2
      Version:2.1.2 NVIDIA 358.50
      Total Memory:5.91 GB
      Shader Model:4.0 or later


      Driver Version:7.5
      Devices:1 (GeForce GTX 980 Ti) (unsupported)
      Current Usable Memory:4.92 GB (at application launch)
      Maximum Usable Memory:6.00 GB



      Any ideas how to utilize the GPU in After Effects? I'd like to achieve a faster rendering.
