Is there a 'turn off useless warning' message option in media encoder?
Halfway through a Premiere project that was rendering a specific transition video effect well last week on my iMac, Media Encoder is now presenting a red message over my rendered output that says 'this effect requires GPU acceleration'. This is new, and no, it doesn't require acceleration because the effect still renders very well - only now, each new rendered file comes with a useless red warning banner on my video - I'm assuming to punish me for making the software work so hard.
I've tried every permutation of metal / open cl / software only settings in combination with various media encoder settings but the message just sits there on top of my rendered video file like a big scarlet letter.
And yes, I understand that the 'answer' is 'well, your card is old and doesn't support gpu acceleration' - which isn't true - last week it did, and this week... it still does - only now I get a red warning banner burned into my rendered files telling me it doesn't.
... and I'm on a deadline.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Here's a couple of things you could try.
You can go to File > Project Setting > Video Rendering and Effects, and select Mercury GPU Acceleration (CUDA)
If still doesn’t work, you can check the effect you add, and then disable them.
I had this annoying issue as well! I was sure I had GPU acceleration enabled. I was correct, it was enabled in Premiere Pro, but I also had to enable this in Media Encoder.
So inside Media Encoder.
Preferences > General > Video Rendering > Mercury Playback Engine GPU Accelration (whichever you have)
Hope this helps you too!
It sounds like you are using the VR Transition effects. Are you?
I would advise you to avoid using VR Transitions in a standard video sequence. These effects are made for 360 immersive video only and require a good deal of computer power in order to function properly. Avoid them, unless you are in this particular scenario. Hope that advice helps.
