I run on a late 2013 iMac with MacOS Catalina and 2.9 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5.
I recently updated to the new After effects, Premiere pro & media encoder. and have no encountered slower rendering, unable to open the programmes without crashing and i cant send projects to media encoder.
If anyone has any advice on how i can make this work without spending my life savings upgrading my equipment.
Do you see any error messages or crash reports? A third-party plug-in that is not compatible with the latest version of After Effects or Premiere Pro, could cause such an issue. You can try removing the plug-ins if you're using any. Also, consider verifying if RAM on your computer meets the minimum system requirements for After Effects and Premiere Pro.
