Title: HELP with Cuda driver!!
Post by: rickyfresh on December 25, 2016, 10:45:03 PM
Hi
I have a NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 on a Mac pro 2008 with OSX El Capitan. the system detect is and the Cuda drivers are installed but After effects won't enable the GPU option. I have tried many methods found on youtube but still won't work.
Anyone knows a solution? The render time with CPU is painfully long.

Thanks already

What OS?  Have you installed the Cuda Driver for your OS.  The Cuda Driver is separate from the Nvidia Web Driver.

System Information will not tell you about Cuda.

Thank you for your quick response. I have the Cuda driver 8.05.57 (latest) and the Cuda web (latest) Photoshop and Premiere recognise the GPU, only After effects doesn't

Looks like your running El Cap 10.11.6.  Cuda 8.0.57 should work with that OS.  The Cuda control panel says an update is available.  On Sierra that message doesn't appear????  Have you installed and tried to run CudaZ?

Tried it all and I actually had to reinstall the operating system for other reasons but even with a clean install same results. But what I found out is that the f.king Adobe its a bitch. when you need to render your protect you can send it to Media encoder and then it will do give you the option to use the GPU.  Still suck that you can use the GPU for preview while you're editing
