After Effects CS4 has a brand new preference panel to match the number of CPU cores used for rendering with the available RAM. This will help optimize multi-core rendering. In addition, CS4 will also allow you to limit the number of cores being used for rendering in order to leave some processing power for other applications you are using at the same time. There are also numerous small improvements to multi-core rendering under the hood of CS4.
