I originally posted this in the rendering forum, but it was suggested that it might be better here.
“Windows 7 ATI Radeon HD5570
I have the latest driver installed.
When I chose GPU in the preferences System panel, my choice is “Redwood”. In the render panel, if I choose “GPU Compute” I can choose “Supported”. When I render, I get a message (follows the normal info about frame, time, etc.) that it is loading render kernels and may take a few minutes the first time. Then, nothing actually renders. There are no error messages, and the render completes (progress goes to 100%), but there just isn’t any rendered image. Just a gray and black checkerboard.”
So apparently my GPU is NOT supported as of now (2.77a). I am wondering if it will ever be supported, or would it be worth the investment to buy a newer, supported GPU.
