    Hardware to Speed up Final Output Rendering in AE 5 and above?


      Heyo All,


      I'm wondering which hardware component speeds up rendering the most for After Effects in CS5 and above for final output rendering to disk? Is it SSD, CPU, Memory? Or does GPU really play a role in regular rendering to disk these days?


      I'm not doing any of the new features like raytracing, but just straight importing in a file sequence, and then just outputting that back out right away as another file format like h.264 or even uncompressed .mov.


      Currently using a dual E5-2680 Xeon with 64GB of ram, and 256GBSSD along with a 2TB HD for long term storage...GPU right now is AMD 5870 HD.  Thanks!
