    CS6 render time

    ctakah27

      Ladies & gentlemen, I work on a 2 y.o. top of the line imac, 16G of RAM running snow leopard. A comp takes 15 min to render in 5.5 and same comp when opened in CS6 takes 40 minutes to render (same settings - 1080, photojpeg).

      Mmmmm?

          Ummm...

          Did you make sure to set your Memory settings to use the desired ammount of ram?

          Were you using different GPU settings/prefs in CS5.5?

            Actually that was probably the case, I adjusted the memory settings to what I think they should be in cs6 and now the render is actually faster than in 5.5.

            Also, this is a MBP:

            if i want ae to be as fast as possible, what should i do here?

            thanks

              You said that you have 16GB of RAM installed, but this shows that you only have 4GB.

                I am sorry about the confusion. The first post was about an Imac, and the second one is about a macbook pro... I understand that with 4GB of ram I won't be making the next prometheus movie, but it would be nice to get the most out of it...

                  ....and that would be to turn multiprocessing OFF, and leave it off.  In AE terms, 4 gigs is enough to run the operating system and AE alone.  It doesn't get you efficient use of multiprocessing, but it does give you headaches if you try to use multiprocessing.
