    Necessary Requirements for After Effects

    michaelk21157446

      Hi there,

       

      So I'm hoping to learn a number of new skills in After Effects, but my MacBook Air doesn't really have what it takes under the hood to run the program very well. Rendering anything more than the most basic effects is nearly impossible. I'm hoping to get into beauty work, color work, motion graphics, 2.5D, lighting, etc, and I'm looking to buy a new computer in order to learn these things.

       

      I've seen this page: https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-Adobe-After-Effects-144/H ardware-Recommendations. But I'm wondering what popular consumer computers meet these requirements. I'm especially hoping to buy a Mac, and even hoping to buy a laptop, but if that won't work, then I'll take any recommendations. What relatively simple computers can handle After Effects?

       

      Thanks in advance.
