    3D Rendering GPU help! Workstation tips?

    filmsbysarahl

      Hello!

       

      I am a new to rendering motion in 3D. When I tried to render 3D text using raytrace in After Effects, I realized that I didn't have the proper GPU to do so. I am currently working on a 2011 27'' iMac, but am looking to build a solid work station so I can design from my home office. I also learned today that iMacs are impossible to upgrade unless you're only upgrading RAM. I am a student and am still learning about the technical components of computers. Thank you in advance for your patience!

       

      I would like to work in Motion Graphics and some light animation. What are some tips on building a workstation that will handle 3D applications in After Effects as well as Maya?

       

      Thank you!
