I've been working on a video slideshow for a client with lots of different images and effects and am getting pretty close to the end. The problem I'm running into now is there are a lot of small changes coming in like changing the wording of some text on a slide – this is very easy but now I have the render the entire timeline again, every time for every change.

How do you handle implementing small changes on large projects in AE? Just bite the bullet and rerender everything or what? Thanks!

I render image sequences. Then, for an update that only affects a handful of frames, I only render that affected area.

Great idea! I hadn't considered that.

Walter's suggestion to use image sequences is undoubtedly the most efficient but, if you haven't started out that way, an alternative method is just to render the modified sections of your sequence out as individual video files, limiting the render to the work area, for example. Then, in whatever video editing software you use, just lay them over your complete v1 render. I generally add the updates to track 2, track 3, etc as sets of client changes come in, which makes it easy to see the differences between versions and rollback changes if necessary.
