What is really affecting AE performance

Hello, I have a few question:

 

What is really affecting AE performance?

How to increase is it to max level?

 

Ok,so I have brand new PC:

 

Ryzen 5900x (according to benchmark tests one of the best CPU for AE)

MSI p240 Liquid Cooler

64g DDR4 Ram 3600hz (all same latency 18)

GTX 1070 ti

Kingston SSD m2

Everething is installed and stored on one drive

 

My project have a lot of effects and every time I make some layer changes I need to wait 15-20 sec for preview, but the PC load is far away from superload:

 

CPU is about 40% load

RAM 48gb

GPU - 5-10% (yes I enabled CUDA)

disk cache 200gb

Preview 1/16

Why won't this F thing work properly?

Please can anyone explain why I`m not getting good performance?

Thanks

Without any specific info about your project we can't really tell you much. Some effects are just slow as molasses in winter, examples of which would be Keylight, Timewarp, CC Force Motion Blur or particle systems. Likewise, even seemingly simple expressions can make things slow as can timne-remapping because it forces AE to evaluate future or past frames it otherwise wouldn't. The devil's all in the details.

Hi,thanks for replying 

 

Yes, I`m using time remapping,a few simple expressions (expand) and 3d animated mockups. They are image frames and loaded as sequence (they are optimized for AE and were bought as AE projects from a big vendor).

Here is my rookie logic:

If CPU,RAM ext is not loaded even for 60%  there should be the way how to force it to work faster to reach minimal delay and highest performance

Not how things work in general and not how AE works specifically, I'm afraid. Now of course we can argue foir hours over AE's still terrible performance optimization that is put to shame even by "free" programs liek the basic versions of Fusion and Resolve, but ultimately even they have their quirks and caveats and can slow to a crawl under certain conditions. Point in case: If you're serious about compositing/ VFX/ motion graphics it's not a good idea to expect everything to be super fast and be in a rush. Render times and planning for them are part of the game. You can't coerce AE with hardware.

Ok,what can you suggest? Maybe you know how to optimize the workflow process?I watched some basic tutorials about optimization, but it`s very generic. Try to use prerender or proxy? I tried to use prerender for some background effects but the problem is that, those layers after prerender changing the tins or even don`t contain some of the effect.Maybe I`m doing something wrong...

 

Thanks

GTX 1070 ti is no longer powerful enough to run After Effects. I would recommnet you change it to something newer.

the thing  is that GPU load is only about 1-3%...So I don`t know is it should be that way?

You are overthinking this. As already mentioned this is just how AE works and based on your info there is little room to squeeze out any performance gains.
