I have some rigs and wires I am painting out of a plate. I have a high quantity of paint strokes. AE is starting to get sluggish. Can I bake out all these strokes. Basic flatten of all the strokes.
I understand I can bake out the entire plate, effect baked into plate, but I am just looking to bake out the paint strokes.
Thanks

You can do what's known as "prerendering". AE's online help 'splains it all. Use the search function to find it quickly.

So does this just bake the effect into the plate? Renders the comp, replaces the comp with a new baked out plate? These are just baked out precomps?
My concern is that in order for other artist to render this comp, not only does the original plate need to link to the project, but the baked out precomp needs to always link to the project.

Oh, for crying out loud.

Just take two minutes, open up AE Help, do the search and read all the details for yourself, willya?
