Re: Laptop recommendations

Save you the trouble, here are the hacked files (cuda for PPro, raytrace for After Effects) These are for the 670M. Just rename your existing files to .old or something so you don't lose them, and copy these to the proper destinations. You may have to do it again if Adobe sends updates.

In Premiere (PC version) it is found in the first folder, program files > adobe premiere pro cs6. In After Effects, it's in the program files>adobe after effects cs6 > support files folder.

Re: Laptop recommendations

The hack didn't work for my ge 330m although it was listed. It has enough mb. It shows it as recognized but the Mercury playback won't highlight. I tried it twice but I'm working on a project so I'll try again later.

Re: Laptop recommendations

Try if ONLY renaming the file to .OLD or similar and then restarting PR will suffice to enable hardware MPE.

Re: Laptop recommendations

Art, look back at the link the the David Knarr tutorial, and check how to use GPUSniffer.exe to get the exact naming convention for your card. It must be exactly the same in the line you add to the .txt file.

Re: Laptop recommendations

Ok,
I haven't used the sniffer but I tried both the manual and automatic installation. I believe I type the name exactly but with these old eyeballs...

Re: Laptop recommendations

Art, in start>search all programs, type cmd to open the command function
A la the good old DOS days, navigate to the program files > adobe >adobe premiere pro cs6 folder.
type gpusniffer.exe (cd c:\ etc etc)

look to see what name it gives your card. Copy and paste.....

Re: Laptop recommendations

Sounds like a winner!

Really, the "hack" is no big deal, it's just a text file. See earlier post, I did the hack for you, just follow the info and you should be fine. Check your project settings in PPro for Project Settings > General> Video Rendering and select "Mercury Engine GPU acceleration" .

In After Effects, it's Preferences > previews. Check that your video card is listed there and select GPU for the ray-tracing option.

In Photoshop, it's Edit >preferences>performance. Check that the card is listed, check "use graphics processor" and in the advanced settings window, check the same again.

Best wishes!
