Following a google of the words "adobe after effects system requirements", I went to this page and on it, I found the following:
The following NVIDIA GPUs are supported in After Effects CS6.
- GeForce GTX 285
- GeForce GT 650M*
- Quadro FX 4800
- Quadro 4000
ok thanks Dave,
but that means, there is no iMac which meets this requirements.
Other option: to add my graphic card to the raytracer_supported_cards.txt or not using Ray trace 3D ;-((
I mean, Don´t know why Apple built in such weak grahic cards (256MB, which is almost nothing...)
You are complaing why your 4 year old iMac can't use features of a program that didn't yet exist when your computer was made? That's pretty silly.
But don't feel too bad, CUDA 3D rendering in CS6 has been overhyped.
Check out Zaxwers Invigorator or ProAnimator if you want to do 3D in AE with your current computer.
Na was solls. Ich weiss, dass ich ne alte kiste hab... Wollte mir nen neuen holen...
About to buy a new iMac, but the question was: is there any brand new iMac which could handle ray-trace 3D?
It seems like the Keplar-based GTX680MX and 650MX used in the current iMacs are too new and aren't listed on the Adobe tech specs page. But that page doesn't have a date on it, so who knows how out of date it is.
And the co-branded Nvidia site only lists expensive Quadro cards. (how surprising)
Considering Keplar is NVidia's fastest GPU to date, I would *assume* that support is coming soon if it isn't already unofficially supported. Someone from Adobe would have to chime in.

We add cards according to the number of feature requests that we get:
For example, we added the 650M in an update in response to feature requests, as described here:
