Hey all! I am a Mac user and new to Adobe After Effects. I would like to get the most out of my system while running After Effects but not sure what I should buy in order to increase its speed. Can anyone help? My current configurations is as follow.

Model Identifier: MACPRO 4.1
Processor: Quad-Core intel Xeon
Processor speed: 2.26 GHZ
Number of Processors: 2
Total Number of Cores: 8
Memory: 6 (expandable to 32)

Thanks again!!

The easiest way to increase AE's raw speed is to throw more CPU power it through multiprocessing [link]. This requires a lot more RAM.

There are a lot of other tips you should review on Improve performance [link] page of the documentation.
