    After effects & Illustrator really slow on a fast computer :S

    Arjen van der Wal Level 1

      In serious need of a computer genius. I have a computer that should have a great performance although till now it's acting frustratingy slow with the Adobe Programs. I have the legal Adobe Creative Cloud. I mainly use Illustrator and After Effects and that is where I noticed the problems.


      Illustrator: slows down over time. Over a period of half an hour the program gets extremely slow and laggy (happens with every project).


      After Effects: Is really slow with rendering. Also RAM render goes extremely slow even with very very simple projects. (even a shape layer that only moves from the left to the right is RAM rendering frame per frame and takes half a second to render every frame -_-).

      It's not workable. I have tried all kinds of forums and have all the settings of After Effects optimized.


      My windows device Manager and System Information sais that everything is working ok. The RAM is detected by the System and also After Effects detects the RAM.


      I don't know what the f*** is wrong.. Who can help me out?

      This are some specifications of my computer. If you need any more info let me know.
