Avoid After Effects slowdowns
Authored by: manxman on Dec 12, '11 03:12:36PM

Oh, I see. We have to run several shell scripts on our Mac system to make a famous program run properly on the machines it was allegedly designed for, and costs a reasonable amount (arm, leg, circa 1000).

I quote, "Adobe After Effects CS5.5 is the industry-leading solution for creating sophisticated motion graphics and cinematic visual effects."

Or have I missed something?

Yes, I work in broadcasting.

You miss the effect that all programs (processes) started by a user have the same "nice" level. Or in other words the same priority.

Of course it makes sense to tamper with nice level (aka renicing) if you are low on resources or need special behaviour. That is not the applications (or vendors) fault nor the OS's fault. In fact it is nice that Mac OS X is a unix OS and gives you so easy options to "renice" your processes.
