The choices you make greatly impact how long your computer takes to render projects and the results you get. In this course, Rich Harrington teaches some important strategies to render faster and work less, and get more power and responsiveness from the RAM and cache settings in After Effects. This includes selective previews, temporary quality reductions, and proxy files. Start now, and get more work done and get home sooner.

Hi my name's Rich Harrington and welcome to this title on rendering faster inside of After Effects. It's part of our After Effects Guru Series and what we're going to focus on today is how to beat the render que. How to get things done more quickly. After Effects is filled with a ton of performance things that will boost your overall productivity. But a lot of them are secret handshakes or fairly well hidden. Or, they have tons of options.
And if you choose the wrong one, you'll actually see things slow down. So, I'm going to attempt to take a real practical look at how you could speed up your work flow, from selective previews and dropping quality down, to using proxy files to just getting more consistent results when you actually render. There's a lot to this, but, overall, this is a course that's going to help all After Effects users. So if you're relatively new, some of the techniques may be a bit out of your reach initially. But, even if you're experienced, you're going to pick up things that make your job faster.
Because after all, if you can get the job done in less time, it usually means you can either get more work done or go home sooner. And that's what this class is about, how to be more productive and use some of the modern multi-processing work flow tools inside of Adobe After Effects.
