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.
Am I missing something,
Yes. The difference between an edit suite and a compositing program. Seriously, simply accept things as they are and don't try to apply principles from one program to the other when they are based on completely different workflow paradigms which in turn affect the underlying tech stuff.
