I'm using Premier Pro CS5 with a Mac Pro, Quad Core CPU x2, 16Gb RAM and the nVidea GTX 285 graphic card from EVGA and I just noticed in the PROJECT SETTING/ VIDEO RENDERING AND PLAYBACK/ RENDERER: Mercury Playback Engine Software Only (is selected). It's also greayed out and I can't change it to GPU enabled on this or any other project. Why? Is there something I need to do?
I have all the supported hardware and yet I'm not getting full use of the Mercury Playback Engine.
Can anyone help please???
Downloaded the CUDA drivers and I now have access to the GPU enabled function (in fact it automatically switched to enabled in Premier Pro). I had recently updated the GPU drivers as EVGA offers this feature as a member/customer...whenever I log in to my account with them they advise if a new driver is available. However they don't mention anything about the CUDA drivers (hence the issue with the software only playback capability).
Once again thanking YOU!!!
