Got a new iMac Pro. 10 core, Vega 64, 128GB ram. Absolutely flies with fcpx, redcineX and resolve. Seriously impressive. 6K50p red footage edits like butter, exports at very impressive speeds.

Has some weird quirks. I know this isn’t the forum to ask, but it’s worth it for the hive mind. After effects renders keep failing. 6K prores files being keyed with key light and multiple precomps with masking and some lumetri colour correction. Main issue is that I get the message that it’s out of memory. Very odd. Everything else is fantastic - can’t wait to learn motion...

We have 5 of the same machines, but with 64GB RAM. AFAIK, no such issues, but of course, everyone's AE projects can be quite different from each other. Have you checked your GPU render settings in AE? OpenCL versus Metal. Whatever it is, change it to the other and see if that helps.

You can also try the secret menu and purge cache quite often.

Which version of AE?
I upgraded a nMP D700/64GB with Mojave and have AE 2018 and 2019.
2019 is a buggy POS.
Constantly crashing but I can't move away due to some projects got started up on it :P
One of the bugs is that it doesn't support certain codecs one being QT ANIMATION w/ALPHA.
That I don't understand.
The same file in 2018 it seems to work with no errors.
So, for now, I have both versions running and super careful which one gets saved as 2019.

Ah ok - nice tip.

I’ve got 2019 but it’s rendering to prores4444 with alpha. Purge quite often and this helps real-time performance but not rendering

Just keeps crashing on renders. Lucky enough to have a few 2013 Mac Pro’s to rely on for the Ae work. But Adobe is getting worse for bugs - Ae and Pr crash too often.

you don't need to edit in 2019 if you're having problems:

I'll check that out for Premiere, I also just found out that AE projects can be downgraded which is new to me :)
