    iMAC/Cineware woes

    jazzmaster2020

      Hello!

      Running an iMac 3.4 i7 with 24gb ram and having issues with ram preview when I'm using AE with Cineware. When I include my object buffers, shadows, and amb occlusion passes it severely chokes this system.

      The comp is only 568x320 - iphone video with 4 Cineware layers. I've converted the video file to pro res, reset my disc cache to an external g drive, memory panel has 21gb dedicated to AE.

      After it does finally chug through a complete preview my shadow layer will look mostly black - pic attached. I can turn off this layer and preview does slightly speed up, although still seems kind of slow for the comp size.Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 8.20.14 PM.png

      Apologies if this question has been posted before. I've scoured numerous sites and haven't really found any solutions.

       

      Best,
