    Hi guys i hope someone can help me out, my PC specs are the following:

    Windows XP
    2gb 667mhz ram
    nVidia GeForce 9600GT 1gb
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual core 4000+

    I’ve been looking around and everything seems to indicate that my rig is sufficient
    for After Effects and invigorator pro but whenever i use the invigorator plugin with AE
    everything becomes really choppy and quite a nuisance to work with, why is this happening?
    I appreciate any answer and thanks in advance for your time.

    Hi Diogo,

    Right, your system specs is sufficient to run the software. What you have to look out for are the settings within the program. In Camera Mode, make sure you are using the Invigorator Renderer. In addition, select all your objects, and go to the Object tab, and change the Draft Object Faceting value to “3.0”. If you are using a low (sharp) Draft Object Faceting Value, this will cause slow down because you are constantly working with objects that are viewed in final render quality.

    In After Effects, try viewing the Resolution at 50% or 25%. If needed, you can also change the 3D Invigorator layer into a draft layer. These settings should help speed up the program for you.

    Once you are ready to render, you can adjust the settings back to best quality in After Effects.
