Now the advantage of having with Multiple Output Modules for one composition is it only needs to render the frame once. And then you can write that frame multiple times. This is far more efficient than rendering multiple copies of the same composition. However, say you're handing this over to an editor. Rather than giving him your Final Comp, they may ask for your components in case we want to re-edit it later or create their own transition. In this case, we've cued up Comp 1 and Comp 2 and rendering it either to the codec that the editor requested or to the Lossless preset to get the maximum quality.
Our Main Comp 1 was a short composition anyway. We'll handle at the end. We do indeed want to render that whole composition. But you might remember, Main Comp 2 was longer than the content that was in it. And in that case, we had set up a work area that matched the actual content that was supposed to go to the editor. So this is a case where you do indeed want to make sure you have Work Area Only turned on. This is because we're delivering just a specific element out of this composition, rather than an entire Final Comp. The final thing your editor may want is, indeed, an Audio Only pass, and that prefix even gives you a preset for Audio Only.
Double check it to make sure it's the sample rate that's needed, usually 48K for professional video work. If you were rendering as 1 Mega Comp, you could even had an Output Module and change that one to a suitable preset. I can double-click it to verify settings, AIFF format, 48K, 16-bit Audio/Stereo, Okay. So After Effects is actually a very flexible tool when it comes to rendering your Final Project. The main thing I want to get across is you don't need to render your composition every time you have a different format.
You can often output to multiple formats from one rendered composition, which is a huge time saver
