AE Composition appears tiny in main comp review window
on Aug 27, 2013 at 9:23:43 am

I've completed a composition, but when I review it in the main comp window it appears in the top left corner of the comp window (about an sixth of the white comp window) - it also renders to this size no matter what render size I use - can someone tell me what basic mistake I have made? Thanks!

Take a screen shot of your project and upload it using the third to last icon in the reply dialogue. A screen shot of your rendering queue with the render and output module twirled open would also be helpful.

Your composition is actually that large.

If you want a smaller composition, then create a new composition at the desired size, drag the big composition into the new composition, and reposition the nested composition within the new composition to place the content that you want within the frame.

Hi Todd - My frustration is that none of my other projects appear this small - they all fill the center screen and when sent to render - do so as they appear. This one renders exactly as you see it in the screen capture above.
