So I recently started doing some video editing and was wondering how to speed up rendering in After Effects. I was thinking to get more ram, I have 4gb, but After Effects says i'm only using 70% so would I notice a difference. I have a fairly nice computer, i5 2500k, Z77 Biostar mobo, Gigabyte 7770. Would overclocking make a difference.

Or instead of a Rotor, get a used Pinokio or Prophecy and use the left over money for cool shit, like taquitos and hookers.

Overclocking your CPU would help a bit, and 8gb of ram would be nice to have (also depending on the speed and timings)<div>but if your getting by with 4gb, and not maxing it out, thats good..</div><div><br></div><div>yea you have a k series chip, why you no overclock? or you on stock intel heatsink now?</div>

Immunity to effect, cause, internet porn.

Buy a better cooler no doubt.

Also, what type of HDDs/SSDs are you using? Maybe try getting one for reading (where you will load from the camera), then one for write (the finished video). You could also get two more HDDs/SSDs one for video RAW, one for video finished, then one for OS. This would be ideal, but not everyone thinks its worth it if (I don't) but if your rich and do tons of video, then it's worth it for the speed difference.

Finally, make sure lucid logics is enablebed (so you can use the CPU for video rendering and not the GPU).
Plus upgrading to an i7 wouldn't hurt :P

For my OS I have a 128gb Agility 4, and a 500gb Seagate for storage. I have After Effects on the hard drive and thats where im rendering to. Would rendering to the SSD help or should I put After Effects on the SSD and render to the hard drive.

Yep, because the whole problem is that it's reading the RAW video off the HDD then re-writing it on the same, so the spindle keeps flying back and forth and back and forth, which takes more time.
So yes, that should speed it up a bit.

I rendered to my SSD and it made it slower any thoughts?

Render from the ssd to the HDD, try that, I think it may be faster.
But if it's not.... I don't know what to tell you.
