Which version of AE do you run? If it's not AE 10 (aka CS5), that HDV footage is going to be a big problem.

Assuming you run AE 10, here are the latest recommended memory & processor allocations:

Hey Dave thanks for the reply

what i was saying is that it started as HDV 50i in FCP but was sent to Color and rendered back at ProRes 108050i 25fps so going into AE it is not HDV anymore.

Yes I am on CS5 as well

thanks

I don't know about you, but my wife and daughters all sport nifty-looking Adobe long-sleeve t-shirts.

As long as you've followed the recommended memory & processor settings, you're good to go. You should know that the Remove Grain effect is a render hog: it just takes a looooong time to do the job, no two ways about it.

if you want to make sure all the cores are running at a high level, open the activity monitor (applications>utilities) as you render/preview. if the cpu usage graph is near the top, then your settings are good. if not, then tweak the settings, just don't lower the ram to leave for other apps bellow 2gb or so.

HELLO GUYS,

SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS - RENDERING OBVIOUSLY ;)

SO RIGHT NOW I AM ADDING GRAIN TO A PRORES444 15 MINUTE RENDER OUT OF DAVINCI RESOLVE ON SOME GRADED R3D FOOTAGE THAT THE DIRECTOR WANTS A BIT GRITTIER.

MY QUESTION IS AGAIN ABOUT RENDER SETTINGS:

THAT IS, I HAVE IT SET TO MULTI PROCESSING AND LEAVING 10 GB FOR OTHER APPS IS THIS CORRECT ON MY 32GB 12-CORE? IT SAYS 4 HRS TO RENDER :(
