      Lenovo IdeaPad 80YH0000BR | 16 GB Ram | 2 TB HD | 2,7 GHz turboboost 3,5 GHz | Intel Core i7 7500U | GeForce 940MX 4 GB |

       

      I don´t know if runs all effects, our just the program. It helps know if run the GPU for optimize the render.

       

      Txs all.

          Yes, that will run After Effects and all of its included effects. The GPU isn't used very much for right now, but there are a growing number of effects and properties that have been rewritten to work on the GPU (you also have to enable this in the Project Settings). After Effects still primarily uses the CPU for all actions, and GPU-acceleration is not nearly as cut and dry as it is with Premiere.

              Fast and slow are relative terms and the question is simply too broad to answer. It completely depends on what you're doing, what your source footage (if using video) is, what you're exporting to, what type of drive everything is stored on, whether or not you have a fast cache drive, and so many other things.

               

              Best practices are to have a dedicated SSD for caching, a separate drive for your OS, and a separate drive for your project.

               

              Work at half res or lower when you can, turn lights and other processor-intensive objects off when you can, and don't always work in Full res if your viewer isn't set to 100%. There are a number of reasons why you need to check your work in full res even if your Comp viewer isn't set to that, but there are too many variables to give a blanket answer.

                Some people told me to make the render exported into the adobe media encoder. but seems normal.

                  Again, there's no context. Sending a Render Queue item to Media Encoder will allow you to continue working in After Effects, but if you do it will likely make the Media Encoder job slower since you'll be pulling resources to keep working in After Effects. Sending it to AME alone will not make an job export faster.
