I'm not sure it will help in your particular project, but if possible try rendering elements as separate passes. For example if you had a Title Text casting shadows on a background model...

Render:
1. Title Text (toggle others off)
2. Background (toggle others off)
3. Background Shadows (others off and replace background material with Shadow Catcher)

The idea being you reassemble the image in AE once the renders are done just as you would composite a 3D render from multiple render passes. I've used this process to do extremely complicated and high-res renders with projects that would bring a system normally to a crushing halt and actually expedited the overall render process.
