"This effect requires gpu acceleration" warning banner on rendered video in premiere, media encoder

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.

Hi,

 

Here's a couple of  things you could try.

 

  1. Direct export from Premiere to determine if the problem is with Media Encoder.
  2. Choose Preferences > General > Renderer (at the bottom of the dialog) >Mercury Playback Engine.
  3. Try render another file through ME. If it works we need to look at your timeline more closely.

 

good luck

Hi

 

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.

Hi there,


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!
