    How much free SSD space does After Effects need?

    southwestform Level 1

      I'm planning to purchase a bunch of iMacs with 256GB internal SSD. The plan is to have all of the media on external drives, and only use the 256GB SSD for the OS and applications, including Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, etc.

       

      1. Does After Affects need/use a certain % of space on a drive/SSD to perform optimally?

      2. Do the accumulated temp files, render files, etc. from After Effects end up taking much space?

      3. Are there any issues with placing the temp files, render files, etc. from After Effects on external drives?

       

      Thanks.
