Hi,

So after recently upgrading from a 13-inch, dual core, 4gb ram macbook (on which I had very little trouble running CS6) to a 15-inch, quad-core, 16gb ram retina macbook pro I find After effects, despite running much faster, tends to crash... a lot. On my 13-inch, a crash would happen perhaps once every few weeks, whereas on my current computer, it happens a few times a day. I'm basically using AE as much as I was previously so I figure it's because I don't know what settings to use.

At the moment, I have 46gb of space allocated to the media & disk cache, 3 (of 16)gb of RAM reserved for other applications and I've toyed around with multiprocessing, but every time I turn it on it seems to have the most problems (ie. not rendering or RAM previewing, crashing). I've got Ray-tracing set to GPU, I'm not sure if I changed that but I might have.

My system specs are:
2.7GHz Intel i7 Quad-core
16 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024MB
OSX 10.8.4

How should I set AE up to get the most out of my hardware?

First, make sure that you've installed the latest updates ( http://adobe.ly/lsrkmJ ). They fix a lot of problems.

Thanks Todd,

I think I've got it sorted now!
