Hello all, I am new here.
I just registered my new master collection of CS5.5, including After Effects.
Basically, I am using a Macbook Pro 2.2 Ghz intel core i7 4 gb Ram, 2012 edition.
When I import a video into After effects, it wont play back in real time.
Also when I render the video after applying some color correction from color finesse or any of the built in plug ins, it renders laggy and choppy... not at the corret real time frame rate...
Can anyone suggest how to solve this issue to a beginner like me?
I so far have found audition to be amazingly fast and am surprized that after effects is so slow...
Thanks in advance.
Nothing to fix because nothing is broken. AE is a compositing program, not a realtime edit suite. You need to create RAM previews to get guaranteed realtime playback. Read the help. Likewise, read this regarding laggy playback. And since by your own admission you are a beginner, start at the beginning.
