A lot of my Vlab movies have several media layers. I don't have any problem greenscreening or anything, it's just that these composite shots take too long to render (I have a Windows XP version 2002). So I was wondering, to speed up the process would I need something like a higher speed video card, or what?
Also I was wondering, what would I have to do to upgrade my computer so it works in HD without glitching so much?

How many MB or GB of RAM do you have? How many RPM is your hard drive?
Those normally contribute to how fast the data can be read and written.

I have 1.00 GB of RAM, and I could not find my hard drive's RPM (Revolutions Per Minute?). Where would I have to go to find these? Would I have to go to My Computer Properties?

Straight away, if you only have 1GB of RAM, upgrading that to 2GB you should notice a speed increase, RAM isn't too expensive nowadays. Apart from that the CPU does most of the work so I imagine that's where the bottleneck is. What speed of processor do you have?

How do I find the processor if I'm using Windows, and what type of symbol/rate would I be looking for?

Control Panel>System It will be displayed along with the RAM (processor speed is the X.XXGHz number).
