I did not have a chance to use AE before and can say this is my first time to use properly when I saw the MFR benchmark (https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-beta-discussions/multi-frame-rendering-is-here-aka-the-....

 

Redering seems not too bad.

But I cannot believe my eyes that preview is awful. just getting 2FPS with either MFR ON or OFF.

Sometime playhead is not moving at all.

 

I checked all my SSDs whether they are slow but they are not too bad to be honest.

I know the CPU is not good as AMD Threadripper or others but still usable right ?

Is this issue by CPU or AE compatibitlity with Mac Pro ?

Is AE only for Windows and/or M1 only ?

 

Regards

Forgot one thing to add which is GPU. I have 2 x W6800X Duo and RX 6900XT with eGPU.

What i don't understand is how does adobe diced which GPU to use ... and confused me.

in my case Adobe just decide to use eGPU rather than internal W6800X Duo card. Just jump to egpu. LOL

I am not sure the live preview will get much improvement or not but curious though.

Is ther any way to switch or any chance to use all my GPU ?

Preview render time depends entirely on what is going on in the comp. I often produce VFX composites that take up to 2 or 3 minutes a frame to render at full resolution with all of the effects turned on. Two FPS is about what I would expect for ram preview render time on this kind of project at 1/4 resolution with motion blur and temporal effects turned off. 

 

What is going on in the comps? There are benchmark AEPs out there that take a very long time to render.
