If so, could you please do me a favor and see how many cores After Effects can "see"

THis is in the Preferences under: "Multiprocessing"

I am considering a purchase and will not settle for the i5 if AE can not see all available cores, whether hyperthreaded, or physical.


Thanks!!

Is it absolutely IMPERATIVE that you run AE on a laptop, or would this simply be a useful capability to have?


The issue: memory. AE 10 will use all the RAM you throw at it, and for really big projects it can be a true lifesaver. I'm concerned you'd hamstring yourself with a laptop's extremely limited memory capacity compared to desktop machine.

Yes, After Effects CS5 can see and use the virtual cores made available through hyperthreading.

I am just a little cautious, because I hear there are different versions of the i5 chip, for mobile, desktop and iMac.
