How to preview videos in realtime?
on Jun 26, 2017 at 1:46:53 pm

Hello everyone. I am stunned by the capabilities of After Effects and i feel like moving on from Premiere Pro to AE, the main reason i'm moving is because of AE's tracker feature that i absolutely need.

But there's one problem, how do i view my videos in realtime like Premiere Pro? It's impossible for me to casually edit if After Effects gives me this problem. I dearly hope that there's a solution.

Cheers!

Ae is not a non-linear editor, and it is not built for real-time playback. Rather than look to move wholesale from Premiere to After Effects, I think you should look at how you can use the two applications together.

Here are some links to get you started:

Thanks, Walter!

I actually knew about Dynamic Link but thought there would be a way to use AE completely. Oh well, it's not the end of the world. I can use Dynamic Link.

Again, thanks for the response.

Nice thought, but not to be. AE is the world's worst video editing application.
No, wait, that's probably not true -- Microsoft Word would be worse. But not by much.
