RAM/Multiprocessing Settings

Can someone help me with getting AFX tweaked to its highest potential?

Current settings:

Every time I go to do a RAM previews it takes a couple seconds before it starts rendering. After that it's fine and things render pretty fast but the couple sec delay gets annoying.

Thanks!

If you have audio in your timeline the couple seconds it's taking is to render the audio before it renders the video... if you don't need it turn off the speaker on the offending layer.

Hey thanks for the reply. Actually for this project I'm not working with audio.

It appears you could use more RAM. I have a Mac Pro with 8 GB and I wouldn't even think about using multiprocessing, because I can't allocate enough RAM per processor to really speed up AE.

You got 16 GB? 24? Now you're talkin'!

Thanks Dave. I just turned off multiprocessing and all is well. I guess I need to wait till I get more ram. Thanks again!
