Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring components for editors, part of After Effects Apprentice: 15 Creating a Sports Opening Title.
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.…
