I was wondering if anyone knew how to ram-preview an animation in cinema 4d r14, (with full atmosphere/color and detail) before actually rendering out the project. Depending on the task, it can take more than 5 hours to render. Thats a long time to wait just to see what your assignment looks like as a movie.
Thank you

The RAM preview concept doesn't apply as in AE because the frames have to be rendered before they can be loaded into RAM and played back into their full glory. But there are a number of things you can do to get a quicker preview:

1. Render at lower resolution;
2. OpenGL preview (in render settings, set engine to OGL);
3. Turn off cpu-intensive options like anti-aliasing, GI, area shadows, blurry effects, etc.;
4. Reduce your render LOD.

You can make a preview movie, similar to a RAM preview.... Option/Alt + B will bring up the Make Preview window in which you can simulate the full render with variables such as range, size...etc.
