I'm using the latest version of Premiere and After Effects CC. When I try to render my movies and After Effects projects, my computer is still pretty slow, even though I'm using a 6 core machine with 32GB RAM.
During rendering, the CPU load is about 35%, while the RAM usage is about 80%. Do you think I can speed up the rendering, when I exchange my 32GB of RAM with 64GB of RAM? Or would it make more sense to exchange the graphics card?
I'm using a GeForce GTX980 Ti Graphics card in an ASUS ROG Rampage V Extreme Mainboard. Files are being exchanged through a D2 drive, hence it's the fastest I could get. I do not see any limitation here.
Suggestions are welcome.
AE does not use any GPU acceleration for final rendering except for a few effects. Likewise, rendering optimizations depend on the output format, effects used, structure of the comp and a million other things and a lot of this stuff is running at most on two cores. The simple answer is, that none of this has any relation to your hardware. It's just how AE works and you need to get used to it and figure it into your workflow.
Oh, wow. Thanks! So, it looks like there's no help other than a faster core. I'm still wondering why the CPU cores are just being utilized with 30-40% each.
