After effects requirements
on May 24, 2009 at 1:14:45 pm

hi, ive just installed after effects on my toshiba laptop, and im just wondering if you guys could tell me how long it takes to render a video? im just messing around at the moment but when i try to render, it takes a second for each frame. for a 10 second clip at 60 frames each its 10 minutes) i have 3gb ram, and an AMD 2ghz dualcore processor. my graphics card is 840 mb ATI radeon.

>How long it takes to render a video?

Afraid that's an impossible to answer question. Use of 3D effects, particles, fractal noise (especially with lots of complexity), general noise/grain effects, size of comp, use of video layers etc etc all change how long the render time will take.

If really simple comps are taking a overly long time you might want to examine your settings (Google around for advice on what they should be given your set-up) but if it's complex renders always take forever.
