we are using adobe after effects for inserting pictures and text into an existing video, which only has to be rerendered afterwards.
The task is to optimize the performance so that the rerendering only takes 2-3 minutes.
Unfortunatly we had tested it with several CPU Configurations and we are stuck with the Optimization. More RAM and better IO is not needed because the files are very small <100 MB. we tried to stack CPU, but we are stuck at 7 minutes per rerendering for our test case.
Even with doubeling the CPU´s we see a 100% Utilisation but it takes the same overall time in the end.
Many thanks for an answer.
Is there a specific reason for using After Effects? From the description a video editing application such as Premiere Pro may be the better choice.
Is it also possible to script the text and image insert so it is working without user interaction?
