    Suggested Mac Pro Hardware Setup for Advanced After Effects User


      What is a suggested mac pro hardware setup that can handle rendering 3D animations in After Effects with short rendering times?  Also, is a beefed up macbook pro also an option or will I be experiencing long rendering times with it?  Lastly, my current computer really struggles with after effects especially when I start working with 3D text so is another option to just improve upon what I currently have? 


      I currently have:
