i have a certain tv-promo-project where i have to render several comps which all include the same amount of text and just a hand full of additional graphic elements, e.g. a lensflare and a glowing line which separats the text blocks.
The text of the specific promo-comps are read out of a "main text comp" by expressions. The expression is as follows:
txt = comp("Master Textkomposition").layer("Textebene").text.sourceText;
The rendertimes of the project are constantly slowing down as the render queue and the process goes on. The first comp takes about 8 Minutes to render (it is only 10 sec long) and the second already 20 min, where the third comp reaches like 2 hours of render time.
I also recognized that even the preview in the timeline is really slow, although the used effects are usually not that performance heavy.
My System specs:
After Effects CS6 126.96.36.199
Mac Pro 5,1
Processor 2 x 2,93 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
RAM 24 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC
Graphic NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2048 MB
Software OS X 10.8.5 (12F45)
Drive c: 500 GB SSD (Apps & Disk Cache)
Drive d: 2 TB HDD (Project & Source Media)
Drive e: 1 TB HDD (Render & Media Cache)
Does anybody have a clue what this problem could be about?
Any help is appreciated
Probably the expressions in concert with the disk caches. Turn off the disk cache stuff in the prefs...
Thanks for the advice aka danke für den Tipp!
I'll give it a try!
