    I have a pretty good computer:

    Nvidia RTX 2080 Super 8GB

    64GB Ram (58GB allocated to Adobe products)

    Disk Cache (75GB enabled) on D: SSD

    Conformed Media Cache on C: SSD

    50% zoom, quarter preview

    But even if I just have a couple text layers popping up the green render line can’t keep up with it and it chugs.

    Is this normal behavior or is there some other settings I should try?

    Ae doesn’t run much in real-time, but a couple of 2D text layers is normally doable!

    That said, there are number of features that can sneakily crank up your render times. Are you using the Classic 3D renderer, or the CINEMA 4D renderer? Are they 2D or 3D? Are you using motion blur or depth of field at all?

    You can use the Composition Profiler to see what’s dragging your render times down. Click the snail icon in the lower left corner of the timeline panel. This will reveal a column in the timeline that shows you the impact that each layer, feature, and effect has on render time:
