Rendering in After Effects
on Aug 5, 2013 at 7:46:57 pm

I'm working on a large project in After Effects (a lot of photos and videos within a motion graphics project).

As I get further into this project, rendering is becoming more of an issue.

I can no longer render the entire project—only sections will be rendered. If I move on to the next section, the prior section will no longer be rendered. Basically, I can only watch chunks of my project.

This is only my 3rd AE project so I assume I'm doing something incorrectly. I just don't know what :/

Thanks, guys!

First, do you mean rendering (final output) or RAM Previewing (testing within After Effects)? If you're testing within After Effects, you can set your composition view to half size/half res (or lower!) to reduce the memory requirements. You can also RAM Preview every other frame instead of every frame (shift-0 on the numeric keypad) to get yourself more frames. Also, set your work area to just the part you're working on/testing rather than trying to watch the entire project every single time.

How much RAM do you have installed in your computer?

It is easier to destroy than to create.
More fun, too.

See "FAQ: Why does RAM preview only play part of my composition?"
