What do you expect to accomplish with this card? Not much, I hope.
I work with Ray Traced 3D, and use 3D layers in many projects. I really hope this card will speed up my workflow. I am not a big fan of 3D and I don't use Cinema 4D or any other specific software for 3D, that's why this card will be helpful to me. Also I think will speed up my rendering speed in media encoder. Another thing is that I use 2 x 27 inch dell displays and I plan to buy a 27 inch Cintiq soon. I will need more Display Ports.
But The most important I need to know is that if AE supprts it. Other reason to buy exactly this one is that it's on the price of K4200, but has double the memory and a lot more QUDA cores.
I hope you're aware Adobe is no longer doing work with Ray-Tracing. The feature still exists, but the future appears to lie (for now) with C4D Lite.
I've read there's a workaround for some Nvidia cards, but sadly, I don't know what it is. You might have to search the forum -- I recall Szalam mentioned it one time. He had complete-looking instructions.
But I wouldn't hold my breath that it will result in huge speed increases. Or small ones, for that matter; CUDA is no longer a high-priority item among AE developers. Getting the software to perform as advertised is much higher.
With the latest versions of AE, you can tick a box to "enable untested cards" and it will work on the newer classes of NVIDIA's cards. No cards for the past several years have been tested because updating the Optix library so that the new class of cards can work is about the only thing the AE team has done with the ray-traced renderer since it was introduced in CS6. As Dave says, the AE team considers it obsolete. Read this: http://motionworks.net/after-effects-3d-future/
Thank you very much for the complete answer Szalam! I was just looking at this tick box. Thank you very much for your help Dave and Szalam.
I have the same card on my WS, i do CGI as core business.
Trying to use raytraced render with my M4000, with latest drivers on AE CC, i have tryed it with allow for untested card checked on and off
and i still receive error messages. Any advice?
Hi mastroprimo ,
I have just received yesterday the card and so far it works well with AE and other Adobe products. Make sure you have added AE to the list of programs in 3D settings in NVIDIA Control Panel. At first AE didn't recognize the card, but after I added the program to the list it works fine.
Hope I've helped.
AE recognize my card with no problems from the beginning , but still give an error 5070 : 12 .
Hi problem solved.
Just a quick change on dll.
Thx a lot.
Maybe you can share what was the change in case in future someone gets the same issue ? : )
Congrats for solving : )
Yes of course.
I have downloaded the latest Optix drivers from Nvidia developpers, and installed them.
After that i have changed the Optix dll from AE route with the new ones on the Nvidia Optix developpers kit.
And all works just fine now.
I know people said whe can use Cinema 4D, but onestly, i use Autodesk Maya most , i don't like Cinema 4D much, and from years i am able
to import locators in AE, so Cinema is good for motion graphics but i don't like much this joint venture.
I got the same issue with my quadro M4000 Error 5070 :: 12 Just to add to the last opinion of Mastroprimo, after you install the Optix drivers, you need to find the new dll you need to exchange. You can find it after you turn on visibility for hidden folders, go to C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\OptiX SDK 3.9.0\bin64 where you will find Optix.1.dll . You need to copy this file in the Support Files directory of your AE. It worked with me too.
