Well, given how AE works, your system is less than ideal. You know, most stuff still runs single threaded, so your processors have nothing to do. Conversely, those Titans only make sense, if you actually use a CUDA-driven plug-in like Sapphire, but even then you have over-specced. Unless you also use the machine for 3D work, you have an Edsel where AE is concerned. That prefs folder issue is another matter, but without knowing more about your setup impossible to decipher. Simply sounds like you have some domain controller and different user contexts or something like that.
I have mentioned this before in other posts....but yes the machine is used for heavy 3D work and Color Grading in Resolve using a lot of GPU power. Even with all the threads of the system disabled in bios or windows, AE behaves the same way.
I am more concerned with the odd long process of opening and the constant recreating of that Adobe folder. What more info is needed to troubleshoot this?
Plus I find it ridiculous that you could over build a system for AE....sounds like AE's problem and not the machine . Slow computer equals fast AE? Hmmmm. Can't wait until the MP is re-engineered and added into the new 2015 CC. Lots of potential there. Anyhow my machine still renders much faster with MP on then with it off regardless of plugin threaded coding.
Anyone have any ideas why AE would create a new preference folder every time it opens? Really think this is the cause of some of the initial sluggishness upon opening AE.
We just installed a brand new machine and have exactly the same issue. A random number of Adobe folders are constantly being created in de AppData/Roaming folder, all containing an After Effects folder with a AfterFX11.ini file inside. These folders are named with small differences in the filename to make them unique I guess:
And so on...

Any thoughts on this after a year? I would really appreciate you sharing any developments on this.
