Remote Desktop Support

PostTue Jun 19, 2018 11:32 pm

Is there any particular way of getting RDP working on non Quadro cards like a GTX 1070 ti? This is the only software I cannot use over RDP without using teamviewer. It would really help me out in a pinch. Any tips to get the driver working?

Workstation I am trying to connect with RDP has GTX 1070 ti
Workstation I am running from home has a GTX 980

My colleague has no problem with the workstations that have Quadro's

100% not an issue of the graphics card. I recommend checking your networking setup or RDP settings on the client. RDP doesn’t care what you have/don’t have in a system. I’ve RDP’d into clients with piss poor cards, and, no cards at all.

If it is an issue with the cards (outside of it being drivers not installed properly) I’ll gladly eat my words. :D

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks I will check with our IT. It is just odd that 3dsmax, After Effects and premiere viewports work but not fusion viewport. I did have an issue with 3dsmax viewport until I changed the viewport drivers which led me to thinking it was how fusion handled drivers.

That’s definitely more specific than your original post. On the GeForce machine everything but Fusion that uses OpenGL works?

Not a solution but I can confirm that, since I know fusion (fusion 5) that it wont work with Remote Desktop.
I was using teamviewer and now AnyDesk if I have to open up Fusion remotely.

RDP uses a virtual display driver which blocks the GPU and thus also OpenGL and probably (not sure about this) CUDA/OpenCL so no hardware graphics rendering is possible. You must use some other remoting software, Teamviewer works nicely for example.

Thanks, My colleagues who have NVidia Quadro m4000 cards all mention fusion works with RDP. I will put another card in my workstation tonight to test this to confirm.

Create small script which will run your Fusion with delay and disconnects you from your machine earlier, then login again, it should be working.

I was using it for earlier versions, should work with current one as well.

save code below as bat file.

@echo off
echo.
echo Remote Desktop will be temporarily disconnected . . . please reconnect after a few seconds.
echo.
pause
@echo on
tscon.exe %SESSIONNAME% /v /dest:console
@echo off
echo.
echo Starting Fusion.exe . . .
@echo on
"c:\Program Files\Blackmagic Design\Fusion\Fusion.exe"
@echo off
echo.

Did some more research and it looks like I’ll be eating my words, as promised.

Looks like some kind of OpenGL support over RDP was added in that Quadro driver.

Thanks Lucjan, That is hilarious work around but explains a lot. I will try this out.

So it appears to be how OpenGL is handled in Fusion or OpenGL in general with RDP since other drivers and view-ports work with RDP(3dsmax, premiere, after effects etc.)

I have a temporary solution: from under Teamviewer run Fusion one or several at once, wait a few seconds until they all start. Breaking the connection. Go under PDR and work.

Lucjan's script is a great solution and I can confirm works. It would be nice if Fusion worked natively with RDP and GTX cards but for now I will use the script or buy a new Quadro card.

Return to Fusion
