Hey there,

what is AE actually doing, when the yellow loading-bar in the right-hand corner of the composite window is active?

Is there any way to skip these calculations? For example, I have several objects which I want to rotate by 360°. So, when I set the keyframes there is actually nothing to be calculated, because whatever I rotate by 360° will look exactly the same as before. It really sucks that AE starts this calculation of whatsoever each time, after setting a keyframe.

Please, is there any way to avoid this? I mean in general, not only in this case. Let me set all my keyframes first and then do your calculations (after clicking a button or so).

Thanks a lot for, Andi

Toggle the Caps Lock key on. It prevents AE from updating the comp window until it's released... a simple solution that's been part of AE for years and years.
