I am a complte noob to AE. I used a template with some footage ... it rendered out and after the render I noticed that my drive space was running low... Just on 2 gig. Before it hovered around 10gig ...
How do I assign an external drive as a render drive like you do in FCP or Motion ? And where would I find that clunk of render data on my Mac ?
saving a render in ae is more direct than in an nle, you set the name and place to save the render it in the render queue. it's the 'output to' setting, just click the underlined name and set the name and directory.
to find where the others are, look at the previously rendered 'output to' names and search for those and delete them. they are probably all in the same directory.
