i have several doubts about how to composite my project, cause i have been reaseraching information about it on internet,and in webs like this great site, beu I cant get a clear idea.
I am working in a commercial of 27 seconds of duration. The way i work, is doing every effect in differents projects, and after that in a main project import them and in the end blend them all together, in order to create what i expect.
I work with quarter resolution, all efects from any layer disabled and every layer in draft. but still sometimes my computer work quite slow. I have setup my Ram preferences with 200% in maximum use of memory.
Besides, i have use the secret preference ti purge frames in order to get a faster previews...
Have anyone more suggestions for me to work faster with my computer??
In case the sarcasm doesn't translate well, all Dave is doing is asking what kind of computer you have. Specifically we need to know what operating system you're using, what version of After Effects, what processor you have, how much RAM you have, and any other information you can give about your system.

thanks for replying, jeje dont worry I have understood all properly...
Well last year i had a problem with Powerbook G4 and i right now i am running my laptop with only 512 mg and with AE 7. I know it is quite crazy, cause Adobe recommends at least to have 1 Gb of Ram, but it looks like apple doesnt make my kind of memory ram for my laptop anymore...so until the next computer it looks like i have to work in this conditions...
For that reason , i was thinking if the way i am working is the best...
With your tiny amount of RAM? Probably the first choice. I assume you will use the smaller projects to create and RENDER layers for use the main project, and then use the newly-rendered footage in the main project for final compositing only.
Even then, you may not be successful. I have a cellular phone that has more memory in it than your laptop.
