DPP 4.9.20 & GPU acceleration

Hi,

 

I've been using DPP 4.8.30 with GPU acceleration, have "Use graphics processor for image processing" selected in Preferences\Image Processing 2.

 

As of 4.9.20, and in 4.10 as well, I do not have that option  any longer, "Graphics processor setting" is missing entirely.

 

If I re-install version 4.8.30 the option comes back.

 

Using Mac OSX 10.12.6 (Sierra).

 

Barak.

Barak,

 

I noticed the same thing with my Windows 10 workstation and Nvidia card when I upgraded to 4.10.  For me 4.10 is definitely slower than 4.9.2, particularly with noise reduction and now takes around 10 seconds to finish a major change to the noise reduction parameters instead of 5 seconds or less it took previously.  Interestingly while it is taking all of that time system load is extremely low.  I have two Xeon 8 core processors in a HP Z820 workstation and CPU loading peaks at 8% while several other programs are also running (background CPU utilzation with DPP doing nothing stays at 1% however unlike 4.9.2 it does appear to be using both CPUs instead of just one but the loading is extremely light.

 

For curiosity I tried operation with the use of GPU for preview checked and unchecked and it doesn't seem to make any difference in the areas where I am seeing the time lag.  It is a bit annoying to upgrade to a slowdown.  And it still has the same weird glitch I noticed in 4.9.2.  Once you paste a recipe to all of the RAW files in a newly created folder, no mater which RAW file you select to open for edit it will always open the last one in the file.

I am using DPP 4.10.0.1 and I still have the Graphics processing selection box in Preferences\Image Processing 2 the same as it was with previous versions.

Does your Mac have a separate graphics processor in it?  If not, then that could be why you do not see the option, anymore.

I have an nvidia 1050 card.
I did not have that option before I installed it, then it disappeared in 4.9.20 with the card still installed.
Have no idea why.

Ray,

 

Which graphics card are you using now?

 

Now that the bitcoin driven graphics card pricing bubble has ended I am switching from an older Nvidia card to a RX 2060 card which should arrive Tuesday and I will see if the processing option returns.

 

And on edit, 4.10 has some issues.  I got the out of memory error again this morning while system memory usage was at 6%.  At least it saves existing edits before it exits.  The issue occurs when you try to use the automatic adjustment while the "busy wheel" is still spinning however during this time NO system resource is over 15% utilization and memory stays at the 5 to 6 percent utilization when out of memory occurs.  I will adjust my behavior and let it finish the existing process until Canon fixes this problem.

I am using a Nvidia GeForce GT1030, a pretty cheap card but compatible with DPPs requirements.

Re: DPP 4.9.20 & GPU acceleration

Thanks Ray!

 

I will report back with my RTX 2060 video card experience with DPP 4.10.0.1 after I install it Tuesday.  

 

DPP does a great job of RAW conversion and I like having the digital lens optimizer.  It is fast and simple for doing what I do with the great majority of game images.  I often don't like the results from the auto gamma adjustment so it is best that I just ignore it and make any needed adjustments manually so avoid the random issue it creates.

With DPP 4.9.20 the Graphics Processor Settings selection box appears under

 

Tools / Preferences / Image Processing 2

 

I am running Win7 SP1 with an NVidia GeForce GT720 card without any issues.
