After Effects only uses the GPU to accelerate the rendering of the 3d ray-tracing effect. If you're not using that effect, it won't use the GPU at all for rendering. Carefully read through this info on the GPU in AE.
thanks for the quick response. But how come that I see other people using their Quadro cards in a way it's actually taking the load of the render so it goes much faster.. That's the only reason I bought one and you are telling me this is not even possible?
You have given us little information to go by. What exact version of After Effects? What operating system. Show a screenshot of your GPU Information dialog box in After Effects.
The Quadro K2000 was added to the list of cards tested and supported for use by the ray-traced 3D renderer in this version:
Did you read through that page? It answers your question.
AE does not use the GPU to render. It never has. ONE EFFECT (that very few people even use) is accelerated by it. If you're using the CC version of AE, then you'd be better off using Cinema4D (that comes with After Effects) to do your 3d work, so the ray-traced rendering is pretty pointless anyway.
In the future, you would benefit from doing some research before you make big purchases. And I mean reading the official documentation, not watching YouTube videos.
After Effects CC 12.2.0
Windows 7 64 Bits

I hope you understand what I mean. I thought the Quadro K2000 was also a card to achieve faster render times in After Effects CC. but overall it's the same since the complete load of the render goes to the CPU instead of the GPU. I don't understand..

Only for one minor feature, not for anything else. That's what the page that Szalam linked to is telling you.
okay I'll return it to the retailer then. thanks for your time.
