Long rendering time

I'm absolutely new to After Effects, when I click RAM preview it takes forever to render. It renders about 1 frame every second. There's 2886 total for a 1:36 clip...was recorded at 640x480 resolution.

Sometimes rendering takes a long time. A frame per second is not a long time in the context of visual effects and compositing. Expect the old timers to now chime in and tell you about how lucky you are to get 1 second per frame rendering times with any compositing or animation software.

That said, here's a link to a page that gives some tips on how you can make things faster---though often with tradeoffs:
