    After Effects render preview is so slow (64 GB Ram, TitanX 12GB, 500 SSD work disc)



      I am a 3d Artist. I do renderings with 3ds Max. Once in a while, we are also doing animation.

      For edeting an composeting I use Aftereffects CC 2015.


      My Workstation is pretty good for 3ds Max and I thing it also should work fine for After Effects.


      But I have big trouble to work with After effects. The preview rendering is VERRY SLOW.  Even when its on halv quality.

      I tried different settings in After effects. I also changed the preference the preview CPU to GPU. Than I good a second hard drive (500 GB SSD) just for the project files.


      Here is my Hardware mybe someone can give me a hint....


      Mainboard: ASUS - Z9PE-D8 WS

      CPU: 2 x Intel Xeon E5 2650 v2

      Memory: 64 GB

      GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X (12 GB)

      Hard drive: 1x SSD - 238 GB for the system (54,5 GB are free)

                        1x SSD - 500 GB just for the projektfiles (After Effects)


      Would be great to get any tips.
