Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video GPU-accelerated Gaussian Blur, part of After Effects CC 2015 New Features.
- [Voiceover] One interesting change in After Effects 2015.3…is that some effects…are starting to receive GPU Acceleration.…There's a brand new Gaussian Blur effect,…which we'll be playing with in this movie.…Lumetri color also has been accelerated,…we'll play with that in the next movie.…And Sharpen has also been accelerated.…You can see accelerated effects appear…with a special icon next to them…in the Effects & Presets panel.…The place that you turn GPU Acceleration on and off…is not where you might expect.…It's not in the ordinary Preferences.…
Preferences Previews is where we normally…find GPU Acceleration information.…But, for these effects,…instead you go to the Project Settings.…You can access it by clicking on the Bit Depth…at the bottom of the Project panel,…or going File, Project Settings.…There's now a new pane at the very top…about what method acceleration to use.…Currently on the Mac,…we have a choice between Software Only,…which means go back and use the CPU.…Or to use OpenCL.…Eventually Mac users will see Metal…
