Hi everyone :)
I use VideoScribe a lot, in fact it is one the most important pieces of software on my computer. I was thinking of upgrading my laptop so that the rendering process and working with longer scribes run faster. However, the only thing I can upgrade is my RAM memory, since upgrading the processor would be too expensive (I would rather buy a new laptop than upgrading a processor). These are my specs:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4200U CPU @ 1.60GHz, 2301 MHz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400 (although I assume the graphic card isn't too important)
What I was thinking is adding 8GB to my RAM, making it 16GB. Does anyone have experience with these things, would this make the VideoScribe run faster for me? Or is the processor the bottleneck?
Any advice would be much appreciated!

I'm facing similar problem with rendering speed. Uploaded to sho.co and it is still in progress fromlast night. Will it help if I upgrade the processor?
Although the memory limit for videoscribe has been increased since the previous posts were written, the recommended solution is still:
"optimize your images properly"
"use moderate camera movements and zoom levels"
...and the other tips discussed in the above linked thread.
if you want specific help, attach a .scribe file or upload it to the cloud folder and raise a ticket.
(in general, upgrading the processor is not likely to help.)
Thank you Mike you're answer is helpful to clarify my questions.
I'm following all the tips given in the link provided by you.
However, the scribe itself is large (switching from one element to the other itself is starting to take time).
I didn't use any custom images. All the images are provided by videoscribe only. There is lot of texts, however.
