    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…

    Its about time to ramp up the speed of After Effects in general – NOW!. It doesn't matter what machine with what specs is used – AE just doesn't benefit much of higher specs. Everything above Full HD is a pain in terms of speed. 2K and 4K Footage is used more and more and in AE painfully slow – blowing every normal project timing. Don't miss understand me – i love AE – its my favorite tool – but i begin to wonder if we ever get an update in this matter. Some GPU accelerated effects here and there from time to time don't make a big deal. Everyday using AE is a lot of unused productive and creative time – because of the endless waiting for the next preview. CPU and GPU being not fully used by AE are unused resources on every machine. I think speed is by far more important than any new effect or other feature. I can get all my things done – but it just takes too long. Is there a time frame for speeding up AE? Adobe? Is this forum still active?
