When I am previewing a render, not the final, if it takes some time I want to go to my browser or go to another folder and do something else while I wait but then the prerender stops? Is there a way that I can change this so that it will still pre render and I can do other things at the same time? Thank you! Gina

I believe that you have invoked a preview via the SPACEBAR. Such a preview will stop when AE is no longer the active application. Such a preview also does not include audio.

Instead, you should invoke a RAM Preview, which is done by hitting the ZERO key on the numeric keypad.

Thanks Roland thats it, but RAM preview doesn't work if I hit zero for some reason I have to click the arrow?

Also - that will make it so I hear audio every time right?

Hi Gina, it's the 0 key on the numeric keypad that starts a RAM Preview - NOT the 0 on the main keyboard.

You will hear audio provided the disable audio button in the Preview Panel is not switched on.

Oh shoot, I don't have one : ( I've got the small mac keyboard because my hands are so small. It doesn't have the numeric.

There are alternative shortcut keys for AE users without a Numeric Keypad. Take a look-see here - http://blogs.adobe.com/aftereffects/2010/04/added-alternative-keyboard-sho....

Of course, the RAM Preview button in the Preview Panel is also a good alternative.

You may not be patient enough. When you hit zero on the numeric keypad, AE begins to BUILD a RAM Preview, and it keeps doing so until all the RAM available to it is filled. Then it plays it back in as close to real time as it can.

If you hit zero and expect instantaneous results, you won't get them. AE isn't an editing application where you hit the space bar and it plays -- it does different things, works in different ways and you must get used to the way it works.
