Hi,

I'm running a powerful PC but it's set up for music, so I think I need a better graphics card to run After effects? Could anybody recommend something suitable please....or let me know if it's something else!

My setup is:

Windows 10, Pentium I7-6700k, 32GB DDR4 ram, SSD + 2 other internal drives.

The graphics card is Nvidia Geforce 210 and I'm running 2 screens - one is an ultrwide screen.

I can run anything (Cubase, Photoshop, Animate, etc) but it doesn't want to know with After effects.

After Effects says it's not compatible with my graphics drivers but they're up to date.

Thank you!

After Effects uses the GPU to accelerate a number of effects and all the VR stuff. It's not a requirement to have a GPU to actually use AE.

Hi,

Ah, thank you for that. I must be experiencing the "popular" incompatible video driver issue then.

AE basically won't run ......and yet I was happily using Animate, Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere Pro at the same time yesterday.

I'll investigate more.
