3D menu greyed out

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 years ago
I'm really hoping someone can help me. I'm on a uni deadline and desperately trying to use the 3D features on CC but the menu is greyed out! I've done a bit of investigating and when I've gone into the preferences menu, under the 3D section it says total available VRAM: 460. I believe 3D won't kick in until 512 is available? Is there anyway round this, or way of increasing VRAM? (I'm not the most tech savvy person)

Yes, you need a minimum of 512 Meg VRAM available for the 3D feature to be enabled.

Increasing VRAM usually means adding a newer, bigger video card.
But it looks like you are on a laptop or closed machine (due to the mobile part number) and won't be able to upgrade the video card.

Thanks for the quick reply Chris.

Yeah I'm on an IMac so I don't think I can upgrade the video card. So basically I can't use the 3D features. Great. Wish I knew I needed a more powerful card when I ordered my machine, its only about 6 months old. I figured as I don't really do video editing or game I wouldn't need something super powerful. Clearly I was mistaken, oh well.
