Is there a setting to limit ram playback to just the work area?

Unless you have From Current Time enabled in the Preview panel, RAM previews will only preview the work area.

Add-n to Todd's reply :



There are other useful options like Full screen which may come in handy when someone is working with a small display.

...and if you're saying that you want to restrict the work area to certain points, do this:
Go to the point where you want the preview to begin. Hit the b (for Begin) key. Go to the point where you want the preview to end. Hit the n (for eNd) key. You've just designated a shorter work area. If AE has enough memory to preview the whole thing, it will do so.

To give yourself a little more time (and responsiveness) in the preview, you can also define a Region Of Interest: basically you define how much of the image you want AE to actually work with. You can look up the term in AE's online help and find the how-to right away.

Thanks guys, I've got all that.. I routinely use a specific work area and sometimes a region of interest.. But when I do a ram preview, it always goes past the end of my defined work area.. It looks like unchecking "From Current Time" did the trick!
