Post Fastest Timelapse Outputs
Hey guys,

I just had a question re: speeding up outputs of timelapse in a professional setting. I would love to up the ante on our timelapse at work and have increasingly been able to shoot Raw but I find there is a huge bottleneck in processing. I am not working with the highest end system but I am wondering if AE rendering of timelapse benefits at all from GPU upgrades or if it's all in the CPU. I would think about getting a promax or similar for the dual CPU if that is the majority of the battle(obviously dual purpose and not just for timelapse) Basically my question is what are the biggest bang for your buck upgrades to decrease rendering times.

The fastest raw workflow I have found is to save each sequence in a different folder in camera and import straight into after effects. This is nice because it let's me skip lightroom and render straight to Dnxhd. It's kind of an in between quality option because I sacrifice some of the lightroom control and LR timelapse entirely but still have the ability to do a really nice one light and any after effects work that needs to be done. Does having my comp at a 32bit setting increase render times dramatically?

the huge bottleneck might be the import of each individual RAW file from your Hard Drive - maybe a RAID or an SSD might make as big of difference.
