I just bought a new iMac for editing etc. (Before the iMac I used my MacBook Pro). Everything works just fine but there is one issue with After Effects CC.
When I have Premiere Pro CC open in the background and there is a dynamic link sequence in AE. My iMac is taking a long time to load video previews when scrolling through the timeline. Also the RAM Preview will hang after a couple of seconds for 5-10 seconds and than continues. I also noticed that MB Looks will take a long time to load too.
So is there a conflict between the two applications or is it because of the sharing RAM or graphics card memory? What are the best settings for the Adobe applications for using RAM and graphics?
iMac 3,5 GHz i7 (Late 2013)
32 GB RAM
256 GB flash storage
NVIDIA GTX 780M 4 GB
Split up your memory allocation giving plenty to other applications. Turn of MP rendering in AE.
Thanks, but I already did those settings. Perhaps my problems are solved in the 12.2 update, or isn't it?
With the new 12.2 update installed there is no difference. Still very slow playback from PP footage in AE. It takes a long time to load the preview when scrolling through the timeline in AE. I noticed that when I close PP the lag is gone, or when I switch from AE to PPro and back. But then after a few seconds the lag is back when PP is active in the background.
