We will start work a mapping project of very high resolution (20.000x800 pixel) with after effects. I did my research for certain things such as ram, cpu, hd etc.etc. I did two configs, one is I7 5960X and the powerful dual Xeon. Please look at links:
But I am not sure that both system will be enough for such high resolution. And I am aware of that after effects is not at good in case of multi threading (we will not work in CC 2105, because it`s buggy). it`s limited by 16 cores per CPU (according to this article: Tweakers Page).
Xeon users complaint about the speed of After effects. Some users submitted that single I7 cpu is faster than expensive Dual xeon CPU. All in all, I cannot decide which system is better.
By the way, our content will be heavy (particles, effects, 3rd party plugins) and I also aware that both 3rd party plugins and after effects itself is not fully threaded (some effects are single threaded)
So my question is: Which way should we go? The resolution is so high, there is no experience about this in internet.
Can you help me?
