AE CS3 / OSX10.4.11 / G5 dual/quad

Can't figure it out. AE appears to auto-save with a mind of it's own.

I had auto-save set for 20 minutes, but (now) even when it's off,
it still seems to save every 4 or 5 minutes.

For what it's worth, this AE project is quite large by now (12 comps/ c. 250 layers each)

Anybody got an idea? This is slowing me down.

Could it be that you've inadvertently clicked on the "Random UI Behavior" button?

Nah - just kidding! Perhaps a Prefs trash exercise is in order. I would also look at pre-rendering heavy layers and pre-comps to lighten the 'final comp'.

Thank for response Roland.

Yes... I "boil things down" as best I can. PC's for sure, and segment video lay-offs as well.

None the less...

AE/CS3 seems to want to "auto-save" at random increments.

I had 'er set at 20 minutes... so naturally I am gauging my "minutes in front of monitor"
vs.
"minutes of my life I can never buy back".

Seems like them "20 minutes" are occuring all to often.

Perhaps I need a vacation?

FWIW, I have my auto-save on OFF all the time. I have a preference for Incremental Saves as this is done as and when I'm comfortable with the progress that I've made within a session. The decision is coupled with the fact that I occasionally partake with a humble rendition of Revert to Saved project - when I've uncannily had too much coffee spiced with an alcoholic beverage.

A vacation is always good my friend, especially so, when the girlfriend or wife is away.
