Yes, the lack of a card with CUDA features is going to make using the ray-traced 3D renderer very slow. Details are here:
See the After Effects CS6 system requirements here for a list of GPUs that After Effects CS6 will use for the GPU acceleration of the ray-traced 3D renderer:
The GTX 770 card is not one of the GPUs on that list.
The GTX 770 is on the list of GPUs that After Effects CC (12.1) will use for the GPU acceleration of the ray-traced 3D renderer. Details are here:
Thank you for the info. Seeing as the gtx770 is relatively new about 3 months old, is it possible the list of requirements of after effects cs6 isnt updated to reflect newer cards that may work? it is my understanding that the 770 is virtually a remake of the gtx680.
Travis - Did you know that it is possible to manually alter the "white list" of supported cards in a text editor? You just add the name of your card at the bottom.

No. The list that I linked to is current.
The GTX 770 has not been tested with After Effects CS6, so it is not one of the cards that we can support for that version.
