Hi,

I have a 1 minute rotoscope clip with an alpha layer on the bottom. I'd like to render it out so I can use it in Sony Vegas but it's taking over 280 HOURS to render which is outrageous. Is there a fast way I can render this out to a more realistic time. It's my college coursework and is due in soon.

Is there anyway I can export the project file from After Effects to Premiere Pro whilst still maintaining the rotoscoped effect?

I just am really out of my depth here and no forums or tutorials seem to have this answer and I feel like I'm the only one with this problem. 280 hours? seriously? I've tried 3 different computers including an iMac.

Hey,

What are you current render settings that say it'll take 280hrs? And what's the spec of your computer?

Why did you start another thread when you already had one going about this same issue?

There is lots of helpful input there that you didnt respond to.

Whoa! What does THAT mean?
You don't make alpha layers in AE, you simply make sure your AE comp has transparency in it (switch to the familiar Photoshop checkerboard background in the comp window). Then set up the AE Render Queue, render your comp with RGB+Alpha, Millions (or trillions) Of Colors+, Straight (not Premultiplied) and in a codec that supports alpha channels.

If you're trying to use Ray Tracing without the right card, you bet! Kill the Ray Tracing and life gets better.
