Hi,

I'm using the Elgato Turbo.264 HD Stick with Final Cut, and its awesome. It's so much faster. But I have not yet figured out, if I can use it with AE CS6. And if yes, how? Thanks for your help.

After Effects uses Quicktime's installed codecs when exporting to MOV. If you set up an export format as MOV, look at the list of codecs. If nothing seems new or is marked with "Elgato", etc. etc. then chances are you cannot access it from After Effects. You may want to contact Elgato and request that it be accessible like other Quicktime codecs for ease of use.

If that is the case you may want to export as ProRes and then use Elgato's software. ProRes seems to be pretty easy on the CPU, so it shouldn't add a lot of overtime to the actual video render (effects, layers, and so on).
