I use Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 almost exclusively these days. I use it on a 27" iMac with a AMD HD 6790 video card. I've hacked it to work with OpenCL and Mercury Playback.
This is unsupported by Adobe.
Many of you have asked, "Which video cards should be supported?"
The true answer is, anything which properly runs OpenCL on OS X Lion. There are dozens of AMD, ATI and NVIDIA cards which should work.
Here's how (if you like pictures and words):
Here's how (if you are elite):
- Quit Premiere Pro CS6
- Open terminal
sudo vi "/Applications/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS6/Adobe\ Premiere\ Pro\ CS6.app/Contents/opencl_supported_cards.txt" SHIFT+G -- go to bottom of file a -- add a line ATI Radeon HD 6970M <-- this is the line to add ESC -- back to view mode in vim :wq -- to write and quit
- Open Premiere Pro CS6
- Project->Project Settings->General and change the Renderer to OpenCL+GPU instead of Software only.
