    Hello everybody!

    (This post was co-authored by Tim Kurkoski (After Effects Product Owner), Andrew Cheyne (After Effects Engineering Manager), and Victoria Nece (After Effects Product Manager).)

    This thread has been sitting here for quite a while without a response. To start, we want to apologize for that. We haven’t been ignoring you or your feedback – this is just a particularly complex topic. That said, it’s time for us to check in with you, clarify a few things, and give you an idea of what we’re looking at for the future of After Effects, especially when it comes to performance.

    To start, we fully understand that you want After Effects to be as fast as it can be – utilizing your computer’s hardware resources to render as fast as possible. Over the last several years, we have been working on the performance of After Effects constantly. Sometimes those performance gains…

    And that was the reply I got from some very senior management within Adobe.... You have been duly warned.

    Keep shouting and see how far it gets you.... Best of luck...

    Or you can keep shooting the messenger... Ask yourself why not a single major post house uses AE in any serious capacity?

    You all shout and moan like Adobe is listening or care... They don't. So grow up and start moving. Get your clients used to the idea and accept that AE will never be a professional app. You can keep a copy to help move your assets over. It's not as hard as you think.

    Fusion... You all just made my point for me! Who you angry with? This isn't exactly a new issue is it???

    I have kept quiet and kept off here for years, and surprise, surprise when I return still no multicore AE. It's not Adobe's fault, it's all of yours! Why haven't you moved to any number of other compositing and motion graphic apps? I can answer that, you are too lazy to bother learning how to actually comp. If you haven't learnt by now that AE is not a big thing for Adobe you are a complete and utter moron. Stop blaming everyone else and make the move... You won't have to come on here and moan ever again.
