    Need help with cs5.5 render times

    ammar80 Level 1

      Hello,

      I recently installed After Effects cs5.5 on a brand new Mac Pro and I'm really dissapointed with the render times. I would love some help to improve my render times!

       

      I usually create compositions which are an hour, in full HD and with greenscreen (Keylight effect). My old computer took 2 hours to render and my new computer more then 7 hours!

       

      *edit : the renders I'm making are for broadcasting.

       

      information about my computer :

       

      New mac Pro (the black cylinder)

      - 3.5 Ghz 6-Core

      - 64 GB internal memory

      - AMD FirePro D700 6144MB

       

      Running the latest version of Mavericks.

       

      My settings in AE for Memory and Multiprocessing :

       

      RAM reserved for other applications : 3GB

      Multiprocessing is on

      RAM allocation is set at 3GB

       

      My composition settings :

      width : 1920

      height : 1080

      square pixels

      frame rate 25 (i live in Europe)

       

      Render settings :

      format : Quicktime (Animation. I also tried Photo-JPG, same result)

      audio ouput standard.

       

      I would be really greatful is someone could give me some advice. If more information is needed I'd love to give it.

       

      Thanks in advance,

       

      Ammar
