    Anyone using AE on MBP? I am curious how's the speed through rosetta... Should I bother until the release with a universal one?

    I have AE 6.5 and it crashes every minute or so. I don't even work on AE in my MBP anymore, have to go back to my PPC Mini.

    I used to run AE 7 on my MBP, and it worked pretty good. It is a bit on the slow side, but as long as you have a decent amount of RAM, you should be good.

    How much ram do you have in your MBP? Both After Effects and Rosetta are RAM hogs, I could see trouble if you're using them together... especially with under a gig of RAM.

    Just my two cents.

    How does C2D and CD compare when using After Effects? As long as rendering 1 minute doesn't take like 15 minutes... back in the days of G4 and FCP *sigh*

    How is 1.5 Ram doing for you with AE7?

    Works pretty nicely for simple to intermediate stuff on my 17" C2D MBP.

    AE7 runs well on my MBP (see sig) - much faster than on my 1Ghz G4 laptop.
