A dockable UI for quickly accessing preferences to speed up After Effects. Change project bit-depth, multiprocessing, and idle rendering as well as quickly purging the image caches.

Starting with After Effects CS4, there is a new multi-processing throttle system that manages how many CPU's are to be left free for other applications. This script also adds access to a little known hidden preference that allows you to set the quality of the Toggle Pixel Aspect Correction button in the Comp View. (Please note that After Effects needs to be restarted after changing the PAR quality, this pref is only available in CS3)
