I´m using a nVIDIA GTX 1070 (441.87). How can i switch to GPU rendering?
I can not find any possibility to define the video card setting in the context menu of the program icon...I´m using W10...
imo he is asking about setting the Gpu rendor ... there may or may not be a post about it in the prerelease forums, I don't spend any time in there now days
there is zero help documents about v3.1 so there is no point to reading them
it doesn't set Gpu rendor but just which system Gpu to start with... by default Dimension is made to run on Mac and so only uses the system Cpu
I actually work with AD version 3.2.1 and tested the render settings. I´ve updated my GTX1070 with the latest drivers... In my test it takes 1 minute to render a image with the onboard GPU. After the change to the GTX it takes the same time. And I can not see high performance on the GTX1070 while rendering...
with out knowing the file there is no value to your test but I would not expect there to be a difference between Gpu time on a file that only takes 1 min to rendor
I have spent numerous hours speaking to Adobe tech support and still have no answer, I recently used Adobe Dimension and it gave me the option to use my graphics card (GPU) to render, it worked fine for a couple of renders then the option completely disappeared from the EDIT > PREFERENCES menu. The guys at Adobe were no help whatsoever, they thought it should be there, after they remotely looked at my menu and saw it was not there, they hung up and did not solve my issue. This is by far the one downfall of Dimension, rendering software which is using the processor is just not useable at all, rendering times are way too long. When will this be solved?
I would assume you updated your Gpu drivers at some point which is going to be why Dimension Gpu-rendor stopped working i.e, Adobe only allowed for that single driver... if this is your error then rolling back to the old Gpu drivers will get it working again
p.s, yes it was reported many times but Adobe is a big place and Dimension is only a small team
I believe I must have been using Adobe Dimension Beta
as in the prerelase beta build? if you have that installed on the same Windows system as the public build of Dimenion then you lost the option when upgrading to 3.3 i.e, the currect thing to do is remove public builds of Dimension before installing prerelease Dimension... you can download prerelease builds from the uservoice forums and there is a link to it from https://www.adobeprerelease.com/beta/6D4BC437-A571-40B6-B398-1D29A4A13985
p.s, no upgrading to the lastest Gpu drivers is totally the wrong thing to do... the old drivers that where around back when Dimension Gpu beta came out is the ONLY driver that currently works i.e, upgrading drivers breaks Gpu rendor
So why did 3 of your colleagues from Adobe tech support all go into my
system remotely and upgrade my drivers, you are the first person who sounds
like he knows what he is talking about, the others seemed to be learning on
the job and didn't really know what to do.
