After Effects painfully slow
on Oct 23, 2012 at 2:17:19 am

Even doing the most menial of tasks (such as Chroma Key or adding a simple light,) the render window is choppy/laggy. It's nearly unusable and looks nothing like all the tutorials I see.

My computer is:

AMD FX(tm)-8150 Eight-Core Processor 3,90GHz
32GB Ram
64bit Windows 7
3 Crossfired AMD 6970's with 2G of video RAM a piece (6GB)

What is slow? Preview Rendering? Rendering?navigating the software? Viewport updates? If its viewport updates then:

If you are using open GL try switching to adaptive render for display.

If you're using the new ray trace renderer it's not accelerated by ATI cards.

Yep, that's what it is alright. So what can I do to make it not terrible? I'd like to be able to preview it without it being awful.

Don't use the ray-tracing renderer for everything. Only use it when you need it.

When you do use the ray-tracer, use Fast Draft [link] for previews while you work.

Unfortunately it's still unbearably laggy. It's not even touching my processor capacity (3%) and is only using 8% of my ram. I don't get it.

What kind of footage are you working with?
