Hey guys, I hvae a question about the gpu acceleration in After Effects.
I have two graphic cards. One is the nvidia gts 250 and the other the quadro 400.
But i really don't know which card I should use for After Effects or which accelerates my used effects more. Mostly I use Roto Brush, keying (mostly with keylight) and 3d camera tracker.
Raytraced 3d for example I use more seldom.
It would be nice if you could help me to find the right card!
In so many words: It's a moot point. Neither of the cards accelerates raytrace 3D and beyond fast previews or conventional effects acceleration where supported as well as decoding footage here and there, they don't get involved. If there is any difference at all, it's marginal.
Thank you really much!
Unfortunately I hvae not the money for those cards but
fortunately I have Premiere Pro too, and there are the cudas involved much! So it was not wasted money (30 € are 70 € less than the original price)
As Mylenium says, the GPU isn't relevant for the features that you mention.
