    First off am I in the right forum? As a Digital Production Artist (formerly Animation and Computer Graphics Specialist), I have to deal with both Digital Video and Design Graphics so I had to ask :)
    Well as far as AE CS5 goes, I did the "NightFlight" test on a MBP CD2.8 4GBRAM.
    With CS4 it took 11min plus and with CS5 8min plus.
    Now Im not sure if I have my computer set-up right for true 64bit processing so my question is, does anyone here have any tips on that?
    I havent tried the true test which is the dreaded "...unable to allocate space..." error thats been doggin most CS4 users to date :p
    Ill do that when I get CS5 installed on a Mac Pro.
    If anyone has any tips on hot-rodding OSX AECS5, please send it my way :)

    First off, if AE CS5 is already running on your MBP, you don't have to worry about "true 64-bit". It's a 64-bit native application and won't even run on a 32-bit OS. Second, about the only thing you can really do the hot rod the performance of AE on a laptop is more RAM. I'd go to 8GB if you can. AE can and will use it.
