After Effects faster after computer re-boot?
on Feb 20, 2018 at 9:49:48 am

I was trying a full res playback of a 3 second loop of some text rotating in ray-tracing with some extrusion. I found that it took 4m55s which I thought was way too slow. I tried purging the memory and disk cache, still same preview time. I tried restarting AE, same preview time. Then just for the heck of it I re-booted my computer, it was able to preview in only 2m12s!

I know re-booting is known to help troubleshooting but does anyone know what is actually going on here? How will I know in the future if I could be halving my work-time if I just re-boot?

You could probably speed up previewing by a whole lot by doing one just thing -- ditch the ray tracing.

It is God-awful slow, not to mention obsolete in current AE versions. It has been supplanted in AE by C4D Lite.
