we've just upgraded from CS4 to CS6.
A composition that used to need 9 minutes to render, needs 2 hours now.
AE is updated and we don´t use the option "Render Multiple Frame Simultaneosly"
We've tried to delete different layers from the composition and the only way to improve rendering time is deleting wiggle expressions. Even if we transform these expressions to keyframes, the render lasts hours.
We need our wiggle expressions, how can we solve this problem?
Thank you very much!
Have you checked your render settings and render codec? What kind of system are you running? Tell us more about your system. Some of the codecs have changed. CS6 has a new render engine. Do you know how to use it? Is you system up to specs for CS6? How much memory? Please let us know more so we can help you.
We need to know a lot more if we're going to help you. Please provide answers to the questions listed here: "FAQ: What information should I provide when asking a question on this forum?"
Adobe After Effects CS6 188.8.131.52
Yes, the application is updated
Mac OSX 10.6.8
DV-PAL in a .mov container, .png graphics, .ai graphics, .psd graphics and .wav PCM audio
There aren’t error messages
Yes, it worked properly working with CS4 in the same computer.
Yes, Quicktime 10.0 (131)
No other software running while rendering
Trapcode Suite 2008
2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core intel Xenon
10 GB 800MHzNVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
System disk, data disk and lot of network drives
I think it’s not working (attached screenshot) but the graphic card is compatible with OpenGL 2.0. How can we solved this?
(GPU not available. Incompatible CUDA driver or device)
Only with the final render
We are rendering to DV PAL 48 kHz Quicktime.
I think that we don't know how to use the new render engine, we've just noticed that GPU acceleration is not running
Thank you very much for your interest!
You said that the rendering speed is only a problem when you're using wiggle expressions. Is this happening for all wiggle expressions? Or only on some layers or some properties? Show us a screenshot of your Timeline panel where these expressions are in use, so that we can get a better idea of what your composition is like.
Even better, upload a copy of your project (or any project that shows this problem) to a location where we can get it. Then someone can have a look and better see what you're seeing.

The GPU is only relevant in a very small number of cases. Don't get hung up on this aspect. It is almost certainly not relevant to what you're experiencing. For details of how the GPU is used, see this:
- Do you have QuickTime installed. If so, what version?
Yes, Quicktime 10.0 (131)
Install QuickTime 7. See this:
Hi all, I had have the same Problems and checked out the Soulution for my issue:
unfortunately I set up the Settings:
a) Edit > Preferences > Memory & Multiprocessing > Memory: "RAM reserved for other applications" to "32" instead to "0" GB
b) Edit > Preferences > Memory & Multiprocessing > After Effects Multiprocessing: "CPUs reserved for other applications" to "6" instead to "0"
The mistake here is that one think to setup the Memory and CPU count for After Effects and not for "other" Applications. After I changed from "32GB" to "0GB" and
"6" CPUs to "0" CPUs my Rendertime changed from nearly 3 hours to 5 Minutes.
