I am brand new to this forum. I will be upgrading my computer soon. My question is this: how much does a raid setup boost after effects performance/what hard drive recommendations do you have for running ae?. I am planning on getting an iMac i7 with 16gb owc ram and deliberating back and forth between the thunderbolt drives.
I am working with 1080 compositions on a 2.66 core 2 duo unibody macbook with 4gb ram (likely my problem) and a 7200 rpm hd. I am newer to ae, but my current computer is still a hindrance to my workflow. I hope I am not the noob leaving out information. If so... Please extend grace! Ps I am posting from my iPhone and having trouble making good corrections to the post too.
