I've just rendered a file in CS6, wow. CS5.5 rendered in 4 hrs 20 min, CS 6 rendered in less than half the time. Holy Shxt!

I suspect Steve Forde (formerly GridIron Software) had something to do with this. As a former Nucleo Pro user I'm really impressed with the memory management and performance of CS6.

It is easily the best software upgrade I've ever made.

Wow! What kind of disk is your performance cache on? And what GPU do you have?

Here's some good info on render times with various hardware-supported ray-tracing with CS6 -

However, there are other considerations as to the type of comp/layer setup. But the results do give a good indication as to which cards to avoid and which ones give the most bang for the buck!

Good to hear Brian,

Makes my upgrade decision earlier. As far as multiprocessing, does AE 6 do all of the guesswork for you in regards to preferences?

I just finished a huge project with AE5 that was helped tremendously by multiprocessing, but at times I felt I was spending more time figuring out the optimal preference settings rather than creating.

Thanks,
Reiner

[Kevin Reiner] "As far as multiprocessing, does AE 6 do all of the guesswork for you in regards to preferences? "

I had mine set to use 7 processors allocating 3GB to each.

I looked at Activity Monitor during the render, RAM was freed quickly and reallocated. Cache was set to 40 GB on a RAID 0 (2 x 1TB 7200 rpm drives).
