For some reason, when I want to preview my comp, it doesn't let me preview the whole thing... It stops toward the end and starts at the beginning...

How do I preview the entire comp??

Thank you!

Aren't you just running out of RAM for the preview? You can try to purge everything (EDIT -> PURGE -> ALL) before previewing to get the most of it...but that's it.

By pressing B and N, you can set the in and out points of your preview, if you are running out of RAM(previews are just frames stored in your RAM).

Remember if you change your work area, you will want to change it back when you go to render your final composition.

Thank you! That's exactly what I needed -- to allocate more RAM :)
