    Trapcode particular rendering

      Hi all


      My computer seems to be generally slow today which may be a random but contributing factor, but my trapcode RAM preview is hideously slow!




      I have 12GB of RAM, processor is Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @2.67GHz @2.67GHz




      I'm aware it's heavy on the computer and things like this DO take time but is there anything at all that I can do to speed it up?


      Working at worse resolution is tough as with this animation I kind of need to see exactly where the particles are going, I can't just have a fuzzy dot that will seemingly move position when it's made full resolution/quality, as I find that that's what happens.


      I seem to spend a 30 seconds or so making tweaks to the look of the particle, and have to wait double the time to see the effect it has, decide it's no good and change it again... it's all very tedious! Any ideas, best practises and workflow help would be great.



      Many thanks all
