I have a dell computer that I use for for work. I use it nearly exclusively for CS5 After Effects and CS5 Adobe Premiere. The computer is around a month or so old, but it does not seem to be running at optimum efficiency, especially with After Effects.
I am currently working off a standard Dell machine, with Windows 7, an i5 processor and 8gb of RAM. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to make aspects of the AE and Premiere programs work any faster.
Can you suggest anything, bearing in mind I have already been through the AE and Premiere render settings with a fine tooth comb including running elements such as OpenGL constantly.
Again if you can help it is much appreciated.
