I've created a video of several people in a chatroom talking, what I plan to do is have their face and a waveform beside it to represent who is talking. However the footage is over 1 hour long which seems a bit too long to work with in After Effects.
Thank you for the quick response. Unfortunately, the effect is needed throughout the whole time frame minus the pauses between sentences. So I think I'll just have to deal with the render times. Thanks again for the help, though.
