Guys I am need couple of guidance.

1. When I export my video from it does not go smoothly. Can anyone help me with that?

2. Also when I export for nearly two minute video it takes more than 2 hours to export with file size of 100 GB. I needed to export it fast, high quality and smooth motion effect which I have kept with mp4 or mov format; but with 'mp4 video format' quality is too bad and exporting in mov is not available.

3. I needed to create an effects like moving clouds and ocean effects with moon. Example like an image shown here? How can I do that?

Appreciate your reply in advance.

For 1 and 2: the link didn't help me, I tried

For 3: I needed a specific thing such as Video Preview with adding ocean view. But there are none similar to basic training.

[Jay Ptl] "For 1 and 2: the link didn't help me, I tried"

We can't see what you're doing, so it's very hard to offer advice without more information.

Re: 1), what did you do? How are you exporting? What are you seeing, and what do you expect to see?

Re: 2), two hours to render two minutes may be normal. What's in the project? What are your system specs? What are your memory & multiprocessing settings?

Re: 3), vague questions get vague answers. Specific questions get specific answers.

It sounds like you are not yet very familiar with After Effects, and that you are trying to run before you can walk.

Answering the question "How do I make this entire specific animation" is going to fall outside the scope of a web forum, as there are dozens of little things to know and do. If you have gone through at least some basic training and can ask narrower questions, even show what have done and explain what more you are looking to do, you will get a lot more help.
