    Premiere GPU acceleration

    c4burst Level 1

      So I installed a new Quadro 4000 in my mac pro.  I'm editing a short using 4k r3d's on a 1080 time line.  I was expecting to be able to play back in real time on full quality.  That's what Adobe and others have been boasting about with GPU acceleration.  "Multiple layers of HD footage, multiple effects and transitions". Here's a video of single layer timeline with 1 or no effects added to the r3d (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEtsIgeyBq4).  Is there something that's going over my head.  Playback is non existent.  The time code is moving in real time but the image is like 1 frame every 4 seconds.  I have to set it to 1/4 quality to get a smooth preview.

       

      Here's my system specs.
