BUG: Media Encoder always GPU despite CPU or GPU setting
We are creating Metaballs visual effects which require delicate setting using Gaussian Blurs.
We have animated projects using the new Gaussian Blur with the Project Setting set to Mercury Software Only.
When setting Project Setting to Mercury GPU Acceleration Metal, the visuals look vastly different.
When rendering with Media Encoder, no matter if we set the renderer to be Mercury Software Only OR Mercury GPU, it ALWAYS matches the appearance of rendering with AE Project Settings set to Mercury GPU.
In other words, Media Encode is ignoring and refusing to render in Mercury Software Only mode.
See linked file:
- images to show renders and what appears in AE
- project file to test
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!
