Proect file is getting too big

OK so I have so many layers and things in my project, is there a way to singlke out a few layers so so I can work on them without the rest of the layers making AE lag?

You can use the eyeball switch to turn off layers. They won't render. Similarly, you can use the Solo switch to isolate one layer or a few, and the rest won't render.

You should also know that there are a LOT of different strategies for previewing: every nth frame, reducing comp window size & resolution, using a region of interest... you can read about 'em all in the Viewing And Previewing section of AE Help.

Just ignore one of the first ways mentioned to preview, which is hitting the space bar. That one stinks.

I hit the '0' key on my num pad to preview and I currently have it set to skip 10 frames during ram preview to make it smoother, I could do with a PC upgrade but I am managing ok with it for now and I also have to preview in quarter when my projects start getting big
Thanks
Jasford
