    ( LAPTOP ) After Effects graphics card enabled, but still no improvement on final render speed

    Rica36 Level 1

      Hello, My name is Ricardo van den Berg, and i have a few questions.


      I have made a lyric animation, its about 4 minutes ( made in After Effects cs6 ) and i want to render it now but when i start the render my CPU starts to get around 100%, taking almost all of my 8gb RAM and wants to render for about 4 to 5 hours.


      so what i have done is add my GPU ( gtx680m ) to the supported cards for after effects, and i have changed my settings for after effects in the config from nvidia. but it still doesn't render faster.


      when i dissable my intel graphics 4000, my gtx680 automatically shuts down to ( i cant manage settings in nvidia config )


      I have installed the latest drivers for everything, my gpu driver is the whql driver from nvidia's site



      so my question is, how do i render this animation with my GPU?


      Do i need soms library's?

      Do i need a other driver?

      Do i need a special program?


      here are my specs:


      MSI GT70 ONC

      Intel core i7 3630QM at 2.4 ghz ( turbo boost to 3.4 ghz )

      8 GB DDR3-1600mhz

      GTX 680M ( 4GB GDDR5 )

      750GB 7200RPM
