    Render times of certain project slow down

    paul st.



      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


      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
