Hello. I'm hoping someone in the community has had luck setting up there after effects. I'm looking for a setup list so that I can get all of my preferences dialed in. As it stands, my Dell T7400 Workstation is getting hammered while working on a simple png file with a blur effect. CPU at a 100%
Sitting here wondering what !%^@#$^#$%&$%*
Please help with a work around.
There are a bunch of tips on this page: "Improve performance".
What version of After Effects are you using? What operating system? How much RAM? What are your composition settings? How big are your assets? And so on.
One of the most important tips if you're using After Effects CS4 is that you should be sure to update to After Effects CS4 (9.0.2).
Do you use OpenGL by any chance? If so, this would point to a misconfiguration/ bad graphic card driver. Try updating that. also check the BIOS. There may be something wrong with processor settings. Last but not least, by all means run Windows Update with extended options and have it look for any drivers and components that may need updating.
