Optimizing After Effects on your Mac

December 3, 2014 0 comments

If you have a Good GPU (Graphics Card) on your Mac my not get the most, by using the Cuda cores and SSD Caching. If you have programs like After Effect or Premiere Pro to render you need to do this. If you can upgrade your GPU or have multiple GPU your rendering can be even faster. A Intel CPU has 2, 4 ,6, 8…. cores, but a Nvidia GPU has hundreds of core which can calculate a lot faster.
