True Metal 2 support
In 2015 Adobe said that metal would have improved amazingly After Effects on Mac with 8x faster renders and previews. Now on the settings you can choose Metal instead of OpenCL, but for my results it is at best 5% faster. With Metal 2 released the performance improvement should have been evident but it isn't. It would be amazing if Adobe created an update with a good part of effects fully optimized for Metal (even if not all of them) like they demonstrated in 2015 and with the support of eGPU acceleration on the internal display. I think AE is too much focused on CUDA, but there are still lots of Mac users loyal to Creative Cloud.

Non maybe Metal is implemented only for a few tasks and through higher lever conversions, not directly. I hope that with Mojave they release direct Metal 2 effects, previews and rendering

Soon you'll only have Metal as your option as Apple is deprecating both OpenCL and OpenGL in Mojave.

Same here, i believe Adobe should explore solid relationships with ATI
