    Performance with After Effects on New 27" iMac 24GB RAM should be SO FAST Right?

      Hello, I just got the new 27" iMac, installed 24GB Crucial RAM. It's got 3.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor.

      And NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB....

       

      So I just installed my After Effects and Premiere programs, opened up a project. Literally just tested a 3 second after effects composition and rendered it. It says it is using 18% of 24GB of RAM and it is taking over an hour. I even attempted changing the output setting to just a H.264 1080p 23.976. Same issue.

       

      I am pretty new at this stuff, but I've got an 8GB Powerbook that would render this in less than a minute. Can you think of something I should check on? What could be causing this? Seems like something is very wrong here. I haven't even done anything to my settings, it's basically all out of the box (software and computer).

       

      Thank you so much!
