I cannot get the ltest version of After EffectsCC to use the NVIDIA GeForce 750M for Ray tracing on my brand new MacBook Pro.

'GPU not available - incompatible device or CUDA driver'


I have been to the NVIDIA site and downloaded the CUDA dev kit and the driver but cannot install. Error message: “cuda-mac-5.5.28_10.9_64.pkg” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.


Pasting the following into Terminal as suggested by NVIDIA here:


/usr/bin/gcc –-help

returns the following:


clang: error: no such file or directory: '–-help'

clang: error: no input files


I have now reached the limit of my technical abilities and dont want to mess up my system!


Does anyone know if I really need to use a dev kit to get my graphics card running?

Should I just be hassling Adobe about this?


Or maybe there is an issue with my GeForce.


I'm stumped!


Any help appreciated.

MACBOOK PRO (RETINA, 15-INCH, LATE 2013), OS X Mavericks (10.9)
