Video Card Support Question

Specific to Premiere Elements version 2021

Video Card Support Question

Postby Dave McElderry » Wed Oct 28, 2020 8:00 am

With PrEl 2021 for the first time making use of video card resources and memory I see that Adobe has a list of cards that have been tested with it. Should we expect that that feature of PrEl will work with any quality card with enough memory, or do we really need to stick to that list?

Dave I had the same issue in PPro CS6. My video card was not on the list. I found video that show how to add the name of the card to the list in premiere so it will work. I am not sure where Pre Elements file is but the method should be the same..

Ah, yes. Now that you mention this I do remember reading about it at some time, but since I don't use Premiere Pro I didn't store it in my "important to know" memory cells. I hope Elements has a similar ability. Thanks Sidd!

If not, test drive it anyway with the free trial download of the program. it might work anyway.

Silly question, but how would I know that it's working if I don't have anything to compare to?

Thanks Chuck. I wonder if this will also apply to Pr Elements. I think I had read at one time that the coding for PrEl was getting further and further away from Pro.

I would surely think they used the same process but either way the activity during rendering should show on the GPU if it is being used.

Dave when you open the program and look under the project setting --> General you will see if the graphics card is enabled. So it will either be highlighted or if not working greyed out.

The biggest difference is that on the timeline almost all clips will remain "yellow" even if you add effects or change the time. Stops a lot of having to render all the time.
