6 years ago I've been working with after effect with 4 stations having projects and files on a Xsan server.
I experienced a slowdown in opening projects and every working process.
in these days I'm going to buy a server (with quick enough disks) connected with 10gb lan.
off course today all the stations have 32gb ram ans ssd system disks.
i'm working on OsX
Do you think the 3/4 stations can work on the server with after effect as fast as having all the stuff in local disks?
hope I've been clear enough.
If it doesn't work well, please let us know. Our office is considering doing something similar.
