    Media Composer and Adobe After Effects CC co-install - any remarks?

    Hello,
    are there any requirements and restrictions regarding installation Adobe After Effects CC with Media Composer on the same OS?
    A user wants to use Media Composer 8.2.4 and Adobe After Effects CC alternately on HP Z420 with Windows. Is there any document decribing such configuration? Meybe there are limitations, the best practices notes or somebody has experience using MC and AE with or without issues.

    Regards,
    Piotr

    We are running both MC 7.0.3 and AE CC on a HP z800 without any issues. I know AE likes lots of RAM so install as much as you can. We have 24 gig. I have not heard of any limitations or specific configuration specs.

    Have more than 16GB of RAM installed. I had issues working with MC 8.3 and After Effects CC 2014 at the same time. AE was not able to render properly. When i turned off MC, AE rendered well.

    I have 64 gigs of ram and both AE 2015 as well as Avid 8,4 runs well with this, to my surprise when doing a single effect render using Neat Video Avid was as fast as AE , similar settings.
