-----------have a very complex comp with extremely long render and preview times.

----- this causes problems making animation adjustments as AE automaticaly updates preview whenever I do anything which means its taking a very long time indeed to implement a few final tweaks.

Anyone know if there is a setting please which gives the option to specify when AE updates preview --

---- seen 'live update' but want application to wait for request......

Depending on what you're doing:

1: Change settings under Fast Previews to Wireframe.

2: Press Caps Lock on the keyboard to prevent the Comp Viewer from refreshing until the Caps Lock is released.

3: Under Fast Preview preferences change the Adaptive Resolution Limit to 1/16.

4: Turn on Draft 3D so that lights/shadows etc are not calculated.
