    AE CS5 vs AE CC rendering

    sciulli999 Level 1

      Hi Adobe users,


      I am currently using a brand new 27" iMac. Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 4 GB VRAM graphics and Fusion Drive.


      I upgraded from my 2011 model which had a Core i5, 16 GB RAM, 512 MB VRAM and a traditional HD.


      Rendering times have definitely improved, but I thought I would see better. If I upgrade to AE CC, any thoughts on whether I'll be seeing improved rendering times? I'm talking about RAM Previews if that matters. When I'm finished with a comp I'll export it as a 720p ".mov" file.


      For reference, what I animate.... I take 1080p video and scale that around a 720p frame in AE. Then I drop in my cartoon characters which are ~7,000x7,000 pixel puppets created in Photoshop. That is basically the extent. Slow RAM previews are a pain if I need to change a tiny little part in an animation. I do realize I could drop the resolution down.


      Basically I'll happily spring for CC if I would see faster rendering on my machine. Any input would be great!
