How To Cuda / Mercury Engine on Premiere CS5 / Snow Leopard

30 June 2010 - 12:26 AM

I know it is simple, I know it is exactly the same as with windows, but I am writing this guide because I know there are several other guides around but these are "windows only" and for some people this guide might just simply help:


REQUERIMENTS:

UPDATED 02/08/2010, LIST OF COMPATIBLE CARDS RETRIEVED FROM IFABIO
I will first list the requirements, later in the text every requirement will be commented and clarified.

- CUDA CAPABLE graphics card ANY cuda capable card with AT LEAST 768MB should work, this is the beauty of the trick (more on this later).

- THE LATEST CUDA DRIVER:
http://www.nvidia.co...er-archive.html

- THE LATEST NVIDIA DRIVER:
http://www.nvidia.co...f01-driver.html (note this driver requires a MacPro model identifier and 10.6.8. Older versions are still available)

- 64 BIT SYSTEM (CORE2DUO, ETC...)

- AN INSTALATION OF CS5 OF COURSE.


A.0) IS YOUR CARD ON THIS LIST? If it is not, this hack most probably will not work for you. Still I should advice you to confirm it with the method mentioned later (gpusniffer), if you have a CUDA capable GFX card version 1.1 or superior, you should be ok.

A) INSTALL THE LATEST CUDA DRIVERS FOR SNOW:


Once installed, go to System Preferences / CUDA and accept the update, IF THERE IS ONE.

A.1) INSTALL LATEST NVIDIA DRIVERS



B) HAVE YOUR CS5 INSTALLATION READY

I guess this does not need explanation.


C ) FIND OUT THE REAL NAME OF YOUR GRAPHIC CARD


Open a terminal emulator (c'mon do not be scared)

1- Go to the spotlight, type TERMINAL, press enter.
2- Now on the terminal type:

/Applications/FOLDER\ FOR\ PREMIERE/PRO\ INSTALLATION\ Pro\ HERE/SOMETHING\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5.app/Contents/GPUSniffer.app/Contents/MacOS/GPUSniffer

The "uppercased" words might be different for your instalation of CS5, find out yours, do not just simply copy and paste.

- Most of the times, for standard instalations, the following should work, but it will not hurt you to look the actual place where premiere was installed:


/Applications/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5.app/Contents/GPUSniffer.app/Contents/MacOS/GPUSniffer


- You should get an output similar to this:


Texture memory: 0
Vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
Renderer string: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT OpenGL Engine
Version string: 2.1 NVIDIA-1.6.16

OpenGL version as determined by Extensionator...
OpenGL Version 2.0
Supports shaders!
Supports BGRA -> BGRA Shader
Supports VUYA Shader -> BGRA
Supports UYVY/YUYV ->BGRA Shader
Supports YUV 4:2:0 -> BGRA Shader
Testing for CUDA support...
Found 1 devices supporting CUDA.
CUDA Device # 0 properties -
CUDA device details:
Name: GeForce 8800 GT Compute capability: 1.1
Total Video Memory: 1023MB
CUDA driver version: 3010
CUDA Device # 0 supported.
Completed shader test!
Internal return value: 7



- If it says somewhere that CUDA devices have been found you are lucky and you can use this capability.

- Under CUDA device details, you should be able to see the actual name of your graphic card, in my example is "Geforce 8800 GT" copy the name off the terminal.

DO NOT CLOSE THE TERMINAL


D) ADD YOUR CARD TO THE LIST OF SUPPORTED CARDS.

On the terminal type:

sudo nano /Applications/Adobe\ Master\ Collection/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS5.app/Contents/cuda_supported_cards.txt

A new window appears, here, simply paste, at the end of the file, the name you copied earlier for your graphic card.

NOW

PRESS CTRL + X
ANSWER "Y" (stands for YES, I want to save the file)
Press enter until you get out of the editor.

NOW YOU ONLY HAVE TO FIRE UP YOUR PREMIERE AND CHOOSE YOUR HARDWARE ENABLED MERCURY ENGINE.

ENJOY.

I hope this helps someone out there.

UPDATE:

LATESTS GPU DRIVERS CONFIRMED TO WORK, RECOMMENDED UPDATE FOR EVERYONE, IT SEEMS.
