Adobe is offering a free webinar this Thursday, February 27, 2014 at 10:00 AM PT, Optimizing your system for peak performance with After Effects & Adobe Premiere Pro. Presented by Todd Kopriva (After Effects QA) and Steve Hoeg (Premiere Pro engineering manager), the session will cover how CPU, graphics cards, and RAM affect performance, as well as platform-specific considerations, including the new Mac Pro.

This is the first Adobe video on the subject for Creative Cloud, though there a large number of support documents on the topic, as well as videos from other recent versions. In early 2011, Adobe hosted a similar one-hour session on optimizing for Premiere Pro and After Effects.
