That warning only means the gpu is not supported. It does not mean the computer cannot "handle" AE.
How about giving the system-in-question's current configuration and then someone can tell you whether or not
your employer needs to buy you a better computer to use after effects.
In the long run it might be cheaper for your employer to just get a better......nevermind. ;P
Just list the system specs.
You didn't tell us your budget =].
AE's native raytracing is not something you want to use anymore, it's obsolete and really slow. I guess you're using the on board Intel graphics card, so you'll have to get a videocard. Which one is quite dependant on your budget, it can be a 970/980/1070/1080 or something similar. You only have 4GB of RAM, which is way too little for After Effects, get at least 16 or 32GB, I don't think that processor supports more.
To be honest, if I see those specs, I expect a totally underpowered system, I doubt it has fast drives. So you might be better off building an entire new system, but then we have to know your budget.
Yeah I thought a new system would be the go.
No real budget figures I can provide but lets say we go for something mid range as video editing will be minimal, working more with graphics.
Help you build a system under budget but you can't tell us what your budget is? LOL.
Is your employer hiring by any chance?
lol employer really doesn't have a budget in mind as long as the system can do what it needs to do and as long as it won't require tweaking for some time.
No positions available at the moment but we are growing! Where are you located?
Oh sorry. Your post specifically said you were seeking help building a system that would do the job and "not go over the budget."
I can't really say where I'm located or what i do but if you could get me job that would be great.
Ok just get a 6950x or dual xeon e2687w v4 with at 128GB/256GB RAM, PCI-E SSD's, and a GTX1080. I'm in the process of getting a new system and checked out some configurations, so roughly the 6950x config will set you back around 4K euros and the dual one 8k euros. The 6950x is more bang for the buck.
You definitely want more than the 4 GB of RAM that you currently have!
The current version of AE benefits more from a high single core clock speed than a whole bunch of cores. As DennisEngine's post suggests.
You want at least 4 GB of RAM per core of your processor.
You want a decent GPU. The new 10xx series from NVIDIA seems like great bang for the buck, but it's so new not much is supported. So I recommend getting a 9xx series card on the cheap since folks are getting rid of them to upgrade.
You want a couple of SSDs. One for your OS and programs and one you can dedicate to AE"s cache.
