Denoiser not working on older Intel HD (answer)

Whenever I apply the denoise effect to my shot the screen turns black and it says "Failed to initialize shaders". If there is any way to fix this that'd be great!

  • I should also add that when I click Analyze Hitfilm crashes. :-/

  • What's your system specs?  Windows/Mac, CPU, GPU, etc ?

    All GPU drivers up to date?

    These are just some of the questons FXHome will want to know :)

  • I have Windows 7, my cpu is Intel (R) Pentium (R) CPU B950 @ 2.10GHz  2.10GHz

    I have 4 GB of RAM and my driver version is

    My GPU is Intel(R) HD Graphics
    I had an update not too long ago so I think everything is up to date.

  • Can you be more specific on the GPU ?  3000?  4000? or whatever?

    Many effects depend heavily on the GPU. Knowing the specific model number helps.

    If the GPU is simply "Intel HD Graphics", then it is below the requirements for HitFilm. HitFilm 3 Pro requires the Intel HD 4000 or higher.

  • I don't know if it is 3000 or 4000 but I have 1760 MB of memory if that helps.

    Ok, thanks. It's just wierd that everything else works fine for me except for the denoise effect.

  • HitFilm 3 Pro doesn't support the HD 3000, but it may still work in some cases. We highly recommend using the software on a machine that meets the minimum specs.
