Built for Speed and GPU’s

UPDATE: Now Available

So we are only days away from launching our new plug-in Element 3D (Watch DEMO VIDEO) and as you may know it renders using OpenGL on your graphics card. We are working on a more official list of supported cards but here are some general requirements and info.

Video Card Memory:
We recommend at least 1GB of video memory but 512MBs will work fine. We technically support 256MB cards but you will be limited on texture capabilities and you can actually buy a killer card for $150 right now which will boost performance a ton.

Minimum Cards Supported:
Nvidia Geforce 8800 and newer.
ATI 3870 and newer.

Support includes Geforce Series: 9000, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, Quadro 4000 (4800), 5000

IMPORTANT:
We HIGHLY recommend that you update your graphics card drivers from ATI or Nvidia for best performance. Users on Macintosh should update there OS which includes updated drivers.

Other notes:

  • Element 3D does not require CUDA only Open GL.
  • Quadro 4000 and similar cards on the mac are supported! We even have a fix for Optical Flares to allow full GPU performance in an update that will be out later this month.

I’ll have a full list of cards soon but you can look up your card online to see if it supports these features: DirectX 10 / OpenGL 3.3 / Shader Model 4

If you are in the market for a new card here are some nice picks:

$150: (For the price, these are insane cards)
NVidia GeForce GTX 560
AMD Radeon HD 6870

$300: (This is similar to performance of my machine a 580)
NVidia GeForce GTX 570
AMD Radeon HD 7870

$450+:
NVidia GeForce GTX 680
AMD Radeon HD 7970

Hi,
is there a advantage to use a graphic card GTX 770 instead of GTX 660.
of course the first is probably 25-30% faster than the 2d which is already very fast, but in terms of fucntionalities ?
e.g. is there some plugins that the GTX 660 would not support ?

It will help many of us if you would kindly share what you chose to use to create this great plugin. And maybe you could share some of the reasons behind your hardware choices.
Things like CPU, Chipset, MB, Clock speeds, Ram, SSDs?, and of course you GPU.

Please and Thanks!

Just a quick question regarding the new Macbook Pro's (the one's with the fancy retina display's" will element's interface support the new screen? I know Adobe has to update their software to support the new screen space still, but will the images in elements interface be scaled up for the new MacBooks? (I'm not talking about any code work just any images you have made and inputed into the interface)

Just want to see element looking as sexy as possible ;).

As far as I know Mac OS 10.7.4 is still capped at OpenGL 3.2 support.

So the tired old macpro and its crappy cards don't seem to meet the minimum spec of OpenGL 3.3

Will Element even run on a mac with 3.2 ?

Could be another nail in the macpro coffin
    7 years ago
    OS X doesn't directly support OpenGL 3.3, but the cards (depending on the card of course) do support it, so through sheer magic we are able to tap into those 3.3 features, even with OS X not supporting it directly.
    Long story short, it's about the card itself, not the OS.
    There's a fair few good cards for the Mac Pro's that will run Element really well.

Hi Gang,

I upgraded my 2010 mac pro with a new Other World Computing Accelsior SSD PCI slot hard drive as my operating system drive, adding a NVIDIA Quadro 4000 card and bumped up to 64 gigabyte of RAM and my system screams like I've never experienced before. Just the Accelsior amazed me every day when I started working with it. I had a :30 spot that was very intensive in AE that took a 50 minute render. I did all of this before my upgrade from CS5 to the CS6 master collection. With the new upgrades I rendered the same spot one week later in 7 minutes. It's the first set of upgrades I've done where I'm even surprised at the speeds. Boot time is nothing, Photoshop, AE, Bridge, Final Cut, etc... are all crazy fast.

I can't wait to put this new tool into my arsenal and have fun with my new toys!
Earlack
7 years ago
Awesome as always, but... The only question that wasn't answered yet is multi-GPU support... I have a 5970 which is a dual GPU card, and I'd love it if Element could use all that power. Altough it would probably still be fast on a single GPU.

    Element doesnt do any real physics simulation (as far as we know right now). So, actually making it interact with a floor automaticly will not work. Making it spin is possibly, and you can do the fall animation by hand.

Looking at many comments people are concerned if their machines are capable of using ELEMENT 3D. Andrew you reply to one comment that cards back to 2006 are supported but in the features you state OpenGL 3.3 as a requirement.
The GeForce GT 330M for instance (in my laptop) just supports OpenGL 2.1 but is built in the MacBook Pro from 2010 – so it’s a bit confusing. The »minimum« card NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT also has OpenGL 2.1 – does that mean that OpenGL 2.1 will be enough?
    7 years ago
    Both the GT 330M and the 8880 GT support OpenGL 3.3, the confusion comes from the fact that OSX reports the OpenGL version as 2.1, and not what the card really supports.

    Dear Srgio, thanks for the reply. But even on the Geforce-Website it states OpenGL 2.1 for the mentioned cards (http://goo.gl/M0p0o) in the specification section.
    7 years ago
    Unfortunately their website is not accurate. I'm guessing the 2.1 version was the supported version when the card was launched, although with driver updates they now support 3.3.
    7 years ago
    Here's the first drivers where 3.3 is supported: http://goo.gl/9RhgN
    As you can see on the bottom it says:
    "Supports OpenGL 3.3 for GeForce 8-series and later GPUs."
    So fear not, your card is supported :)

    Thats what I thought, too. I would appreciate if you answered my last question as well: In System Profiler Mac OS 10.6.8 shows OpenGL version 2.1 for the card.

This is amazing BUT if you are not going to use your own obj or things youve created on your own in a 3d program , this thing will be boring and useless because i presume if this earphone is the only earphone style or there are a couple , people might use it over and over again . it will be soo boring . So i think importing OBJ will help someone like me . Another BUT, lets say i have an object i want to texture 2 side of it (say blue and white) , how would i be able to do that here?

Andrew, given the prevalence of texture maps in your new plugin, it might help y user base to do a breakdown of the UV mapping process. I'm not asking for myself, I already know the basics, but at least a simple description of your process might help some new users wrap their head around the process. Granted, it's not required knowledge for using E3d, but I think you agree it would be most helpful.

    The beauty of an OBJ file is that you CAN animate it. It renders only the mesh of the object as one OBJ file but once in AE, you can animate it, rotate it, etc. The only two plugins I know of now that use the OBJ file are Red Giant Trapcode Form and now E3D.

    To the other Eric (looks like I answered myself here. lol I was a bit confused on your OBJ response on animation. The comment says "it will probably not be implemented" but then you follow by saying that the animation engine probably will animate it. Given that the package includes multiple OBJ files that are clearly animate-able, not sure I understand. If you can spin around the object on all sides, I presume you can keyframe that movement, i.e., animate. Now, someone else asked about deforming, etc....not sure on that but I have to think that once he shows that engine, there should be some capability like that too.

And it is possible to animate an arrow in an organic way? And what is about 3D Tracking? It would be so awesome if you can track 3D elements in 3D space (Or 2D optimized). If you create a Null-Object with some trackingdata, it is possible to link on an object from "3D Element"?

I think it would be awesome if you activate 3D Mode on "3D Element", so you can add trackingdata to the x,y,z space and the Object would move in the right way like it should.

Lack of news in this case seems to be bad news. As far as I read it, seems that Mac users with 256MB GPU will have to change their computer if they want to use this plugin.

Thanks in advance, I know that could be difficult to be honest in this subject.

    Yo Jorge, 256 cards ARE supported just not recommended. Just depends on the card version. We support graphics cards that came out in 2006 (8800)... at some point we have to draw the line to provide the features that make this plug-in work.

    That's because After Effects is using NVIDIA's Optix ray tracing engine which is GPU based. My guess would be that either you need to update your graphics card driver or that the card is too old to support this particular NVIDIA technology. This is one of the neat things about Element - it will not require CUDA, OPTIX (ray-tracing), or OpenCL at all, just OpenGL.

Thanks for the update man, but ive got 256mb VGA on my mid 2009 macbook pro, can that do the job?

    My MACBookPro 4,1 is equiped with the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT. Got 512 MB but only supports OpenGL 2,1 (and Shader Model 4.0, DirectX 10).

    Is that enough ???
