If you saw the entire WWDC 2015 presentation, you probably heard that Adobe is committed to bringing Metal to all of its applications. What does that mean for After Effects users? It means speed, dammit, SPEED!
Apple says that the new Metal API will offer up 8X the rendering speed, which is great. I just hope it doesn’t also mean I will need to get a Mac Pro to do it, as I’m kinda poor right now. Still, if this works seamlessly on my iMac, then a lot of the post work I’ve been doing on the Major Spoilers Video YouTube channel is going to be a breeze.
I’ll find out more, and see exactly how well it performs when everything is released.
