Thanks,

Starting with Premiere Pro 14.0, CUDA is no longer supported on Mac.  If you have an Apple supplied NVIDIA GPU, you can use the Metal Renderer.   More information: https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/drivers-video-macos-nvidia.html

It works for me. I am using Windows 10, Nvidia 1060 card (6 gb memory). Best if you post your computer specs, then others may weigh in.

I'm on a old mac pro (2010)  2 x 2.66 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon - 32 GB RAM - Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6134 MB. HD is Solid State OWC Accelsior PCIe 6G.

 

Yes, I know this is a  old mac but it has been running like a champ on PP 2019. 

 

Thanks!

Hi John,

As I understand it, yes, this is the case. I'll see if I can get an official knowledge base document created. I do feel bad for all my friends running NVIDIA hardware on legacy Macs. I also am in that predicament.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Someone should add "MAC" or such to the title of this thread.

Can anyone elaborate on the reason why CUDA is no longer supported on mac? 

CUDA have 4 times as fast speeds working with .r3d raw files in premiere, than any other driver. It is a huge loss to no longer have this incorporation.

The fact no one answered your question is your answer. I agree CUDA on legacy MACs was working just fine until the latest Adobe Prem release. I am not familar with using Metal but due to greatly reduced perfomance since using metal (plus I'm not sure it's doing the NVIDIA hardware any good either) and my system reboots almost as many times in one 24 hour period as my old Windows NT non-linear system did back in 1999 I'll be rolling my Prem back to 2019 and back to CUDA...for now! Good luck!

If Nvidia would sell their own computers I would buy it from them. I need cuda more than Mac to edit on adobe premiere. So I guess I will be buying a pc to keep on editing with the nvidia cuda speed needed. 

 

Crazy move from apple.  Really crazy move. because there is no alternative that works.

 

Well keep it going slow there at apple base. 

 

Kind greetings to all suffering this same issue.
