I'm having trouble putting effects onto my clips for a video that i am trying to edit and the message that pops up on the playback is "This Effect Requires GPU Acceleration." I have a Geforce RTX 2080 Super in my build and have the NVIDIA CUDA GPU Acceleration in my drivers installed and when I check my projects General Project Settings the renderer is set as "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA)" so I have no Idea why i cant put my effects with GPU Acceleration on my clips. could I get some help lmao!!
How many and what effects, on what type of media?
Some times, if you've multiple effects on a clip, to do more you need to nest the clip then apply further effects.
And if the media is VFR, variable frame rate from a phone, screen-capture, GoPro whatever ... you may need to use the free utility app HandBrake to convert to CFR before re-importing into Premiere and replacing the media on your sequence.
Nesting the clip worked. Thank you so much
edit: nesting the clip worked momentarily but after i rendered the clips the error appeared again
do i need to use handbrake on footage that has been recorded using the NVIDA Geforce Experience Game Capture?
Screen capture can have VFR, yes. Someone posted a link to Media Info. Premiere can tell you if it's VFR but Media Info is more reliable, so check the tree view there. It's not to say that VFR is the reason, but it certainly causes problems.
The other question is: how big is clip that you're trying to add VFX to? I've found that sometimes you need to break things up. If you put an adjustment layer over the whole timeline with some VFX on it, that can cause problems. You obviously have a good graphics card so you'd really need to be pushing it to max out your VRAM, but I don't know what you have going on over there.
ill check but the clip is only about 3 to 4 seconds long with about 3 effects on it.
It says that the video format is AVC i have no idea what these mean about video formats. is that Good?
The problem is the frame-rate mode is variable ... meaning VFR. Which doesn't always playback or edit well. VFR media means the original device creating the file used a constantly varying number of frames-per-second while recording to disc.
Convert to CFR (constant frame rate) in the free utility app HandBrake setting both a specific number for the frame rate and checking the little CFR circle, plus using a 'near placebo' setting for compression.
Replace the media in Premiere with the CFR converted copy.
where is the near placebo setting in the app?
When you're adjusting the compression settings, it appears as you get to the lowest (least amount) compression, typically to the right side.
That didnt work. i think it ma have to do with the text that is in the clip.
I figured it out!!! the problem wasnt in the video clip.. It was for the graphic. so i took the effects off of the graphic and added an adjustment layer with the effects! Thank you guys for your help and such!!!!!
Are you trying to apply VR effects to NON-VR footage?
You can use the free MediaInfo program to get info on your clips. Get the program from the link below and using the 'Tree' view post a screenshot of your clip info: https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download
Please don't place VR effects on standard 16:9 footage. They are not designed for that.
