After Effects is not recognizing my graphics card. Normally, this wouldn't be an issue but I need OpenGL to work for Element 3D. The weird thing is that after I updated the drivers to Crimson 17.7.1 it worked for a while. Now it's not working anymore. Anyone have an idea.
Someone else had a similar issue a couple years ago (https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1961461), but that didn't seem to be any help.
UPDATE: I'm working on a Dell Latitude E5570. When I was having the issue, the laptop wasn't on it's docking station. So on a hunch, I put it back on the docking station and After Effects (and therefore Element 3D) started working properly. I have no idea why the docking station is the determining factor.
OK, thanks to the wonderful people at Video Copilot I was able to remedy this. The laptop was dialing back it's graphic card utilization based on the power settings. So I was only having the issue when not plugged into a power source. Make a couple adjustments in the power settings and anyone else with this problem should be able to fix it too.
