How To Optimize MacPro?

Hello,

Can you share some tips or guidelines on setting up the MacPro and AE optimal performance? I attached my ActivityMonitor screenshots while rendering a project.

some FX are not supported by multiprocessing... so if you aply the FX or Plugins, there is no more (multiprocessing).
(sometimes it´s a expression that slows things down!)

try an check this one :


if you a willing to give some money to make AE faster, get a SSD as chash-drive, get more ram...

but your screenshots looks good!

AE don´t allway makes all cores @ 100 %!


keep it up
greetings!

I concur with Stefan on buying more RAM.
