    Performance difference between After effects and Premiere Pro

      Hi,

       

      I'm sure this question has come up before and i've found lots of threads talking about After effects performance so I apologise if this is a repeat, i'm very new to Premiere/AE moving from FCP.

       

      Why is it that performance in Premiere Pro is excellent with real time video playback even when applying effects where if I import that same clip into After Effects I get 15fps on a 720p 50fps clip. Am I missing something, a preference maybe or should I expect this kind of performance without completing a RAM preview first.

       

      As a note, I'm testing this on a 2012 Macbook Air as I'm planning on doing simple cuts and adjustments on the road.
