I've been using after effects trial version for the past week and I noticed something really annoying...
Whenever I open a file or start a new composition ... on the top right corner it shows "display acceleration disabled" and its driving me crazy. When this is shown the playback or preview is very jittery and slow.
But when I check the edit > preferences > display option... the "hardware accelerate composition,layers and footage panel" is unchecked and grayed out.
Also when I check my "GPU information" from the preferences > previews .... it shows "Fast draft: not available( incompatible or old graphics driver)" and the OpenGL section is empty.
This is when I dont use any 3D ... just basic shape layers ... nothing else
When I turn on the 3D layer then the error message comes ...
Some times this message comes...
but the thing is that ....Once in a while it works normally and the errors don't show (like this)
As far I know , all the drivers are upto date
I have a :
Lenovo y520 laptop ( 2-3 month old)
Intel HD graphics 630
nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU at 2.8GHz (8 CPUs?)
Direct X 12
I've been looking online for about a week for the solution online and was unable to find a solution and I cant pinpoint what the problem is due to ....
What should I do ... please tell me a solution anyone ..
PS. I notice this problem more when Chrome is open and less when I re-start the computer ( I cant tell for sure as its only a week in trial version)
Also simultaneously this message comes in Premiere Pro ... "Adobe premiere pro could not find any capable video playing modules, please update your video display drivers and start again" and "This project was last used with mercury playback Engine GPU acceleration (CUDA), which is not available on this system, mercury playback Engine software will be used"

Yes, this answer and CHECK MARKING all displays listed, the restarting AE, SOLVED it for me. Thanks MUCH Jaendashe!
what exactly do you mean by check marking all displays listed? having this problem rn and i've tried everything
I experienced the same issue. Resolution was a bit of a head scratcher. I had to have GeForce Experience installed and updated.
I recently have the same issue after the new update(17.0.4)! However I revert to older versions but I still have the same problem. Also sometimes Premiere and Encoder have "Premiere Pro could not find any capable video play modules" error and crash.
Right now my Mercury GPU Acceleration is not working. I have a new MacPro. Is there anyway to fix this?
Hello, I have the same issue, and none of the above work.
It's extrememly frustrating because I have both most recently updated 2019 and 2020 versions of After Effects as well as the most recent Nvidea drivers.
- Fast Draft is not available (Incompatible Graphics device or old driver) message.
- Have updated GeForce Experience, as well as tried with it uninstalled.
- I've updated the text file with my graphics card name.
- Enabled Mercury Transmit

Alright found the solution with Adobe Support!
I had the Nvidea Studio driver installed rather than the Game Ready Driver. A stupid problem considering the Adobe ad on Geforce Experience touting the studio drivers and their role in creative apps.
So just switch the drivers to game ready drivers and give it a shot if you have this issue!
Thank you! This fixed my issue.

Hello everyone. I had the same problem I have an alienware R14 Nvidia graphic card GeForce GTX 1080. I hope this works for you as well.
1) I searched in Google for: Nvidia driver update.
2) I downloaded the automatic driver update that they have in the website.
3) went through the installation of the updated Nvidia driver
4) opened After effects and Done. AE should read your graphic card NOW.
Problem:GRAPHIC CARD DRIVER IS NOT UPDATED.
I have the same problem and it seems that it is due to the NVIDIA video card, why the adobe programs still do not adapt to this type of card?
I was seeing this again after updating to Nvidia Quadro driver 460. I reverted back to 457 and it went away. I will see if I can post this to something on the Nvidia site too.
The solution is to update your graphics Card . Check the type of card and download the lastest Drivers e.g from Nvidia website and install.
The issue will be solved. Remember Windows update doesn't update your Graphics Card with the latest drivers hence you have to do it manually.
my system info and ae loggs
please help disabled display acceleration
