    Hardware Question, System Set-Up

    ChrisM-NH

      Hello,

      I am new to After Effects but have been using Adobe products for years now. I am running into system issues with graphics card, not enough free space, etc. I have a Mac Pro (Late 2013), 3.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5 processor, 32 GB RAM, and graphics card listed is AMD FirePro D500 3072 MB.

       

      What graphics card do I need for the Ray Trace rendering to work well?

      I got a list of them, but how do you choose which to get?

      I'm in a bit over my head at this point, but I think once I get my hardware questions solved I'll be off and running, able to learn the program. I've got about 32GB free on my local hard drive, but I have 1.8 TB free on an external LACIE drive that's plugged into my desktop. Is there a way to set up my system so that After Effects utilizes all of that free space.

       

      Thanks in advance for any guidance,

      Chris
