I am using after effects on a mac. When I go to render my composition and click on the render button it can take up to 10mins for after effects to actually commence rendering. I have purged all the disk memory and cache which doesn't have any effect. It has only fairly recently started to do this. I'm not sure if there is a setting that has turned on in the preferences or what?
I called up customer support on Friday 13th and was told i would be getting a call back the same day after being on hold for over 30 minutes. I never got a call back or response!
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Without exact system info, comp settings, effects used, render settings and the respective pref settings for MP rendering and the caches nobody can tell you anything.
You have Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously multiprocessing committed to use four background processes. Each of those must start and load the project. That can take a long time.
