I'd like to touch on the following which I posted in a related thread just a while ago - to help make this thread more complete.

The following AE Team's blog post is a good read on the topic. -

The best take-away message IMO is the following - "After Effects is a multithreaded application that can also use other forms of multiprocessing beyond just Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously multiprocessing". Seeing that you are having issues with RMFS, deselect MP (aka Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously) in AE's prefs dialog. Set aside some RAM for other applications. Such a setting will allow AE to manage its multi-threaded/multiple processing architecture on-the-fly.

If you have sufficient RAM, and the plugins you use support MP, then you should have similar, not necessarily better or worse, experience to having MP selected in the prefs dialog.

At issue is the conventional wisdom among AE users that multi-processing or working with multiple processors is only available via the Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously (RMFS) setting. This is of course incorrect.

Hopefully, folks that face issues with RMFS failing to take off will now find it reasonable and even correct, to simply switch off RMFS and to proceed with their work productively based on their project requirements and hardware.
