Within Adobe AE CS5's preferences is there any way to setup the computer's GPU to render? I can set almost every single CPU on the process but I actually didn't find any option regarding the GPU: I have a Quadro 2800 with Cuda so it would actually become pretty faster with it. Is there any tweak I must do to gain advantage of my graphic card?

Sorry, it doesn't work like that in AE. A hot card like yours is absolutely great for Premiere, and that's a fact! But for AE? It's basically irrelevant.

You have to remember that neither Premiere nor AE were developed by Adobe. Adobe bought them from two different software developers. These developers had two very different ways of thinking about how their applications would use data from media files. So what's great for one isn't so great for the other.

My deepest thanks, you clarified me something I admit I never understood.

My apologies if I'm asking the same question.

I bought a GTX670 Nvidia card.

When I render, After Effects uses 100% of my CPU

While I have my monitoring window for my GTX card open wilst rendering...it clearly show that the GPU on the card is not doing ANYTHING? Even though After Effects Preferences are set to GPU and not CPU....it still seems to be using CPU ONLY when rendering.

Is this normal??

AFAIK no tweaking but an OpenGL card does help with some effects.

That might be.
Perhaps you can then explain to me why every Adobe employee I have ever spoken to keeps Open GL acceleration turned off for all rendering chores.
