I have a problem getting Cuda to accelerate anything in premiere CS5, although I think I have a certified card.
I am mostly working on RED files that I used to edit in CS4 without any cuda card, at 1/4 res. But since I installed CS5 and the Cuda card, I don't see any improvement...
- Premiere CS5.02
- windows 7 64bits
- 8Gb ram
- Intel Quadro q9550 cpu
- asus ENGTX285
When I turn on GPU cuda acceleration in premiere, I do get the yellow bar in my sequence (instead of red), but the playback performance is the same as in software mode... I won't go any further than 1/4 res on one video track. And the CPU usage is about the same too (between 75% and 100% in 1/4 res)
Does anybody know what I might be missing ?
What should I check?
Yes, I have.
As I said, whether I turn on GPU mercury or Software mercury, the performances and CPU usage are the same...
The bar in the sequence does change its color (from red to yellow) but other than that, the performances are the same.
There seams to be other people having the same problem with similar quad core CPU.
R3D decoding is not GPU accelerated. That CPU will be the biggest bottleneck here, getting a more powerful processor will most directly facilitate playing more streams of R3D at higher resolutions.
