@RojoLoco said in Adobe After Effects - Preview is not real time:
@scottalanmiller mid to late 90s. absolutely. I graduated with my audio degree end of '96, literally EVERY VENDOR had Apple's ball juice conspicuously on their chin. According to "the industry" at that time, nobody could record multitrack audio, use photoshop/after effects / premiere etc, or do any kind of multimedia production without a Mac. My personal mission since then has been to shit all over that mindset.
I know what you're talking about. At the end of the nineties I worked with a company that was running Protools on Windows NT and not Mac. It was rather unusual. System could do 64 tracks of 24 bit @ 48kHz on a Pentium II full of effects, but that was in large part because audio processing was offloaded to DSP cards. That's Digital Signal Processors for those who don't know. Audio tracks where recorded to SCSI disks. I remember it was a very stable and good system but it was extremely picky on hardware.
