Looking at the Cache Work Area In Background feature

There's one another cache-related feature in After Effects CS6 I want to show you. If you want to play along, you can have opened any project file that has some compositions you haven't RAM Previewed yet. I am going to choose one of these per-character 3D comps because I know they take a little while to render. Previously, you might hit 0 on the numeric keypad to queue up a RAM preview and you'd sit here and wait till it's done. Well, there's a new feature in After Effects CS6 called Composition > Cache Work Area in Background. What that means is is I can go ahead and initiate this preview--Command+Return or Ctrl+Return is the shortcut.

After Effects will start calculating the RAM Preview. You notice it's using a background renderer to do so. It's doing everything it can not to steal the resources from you working. And then I'll go back to another of my projects and make some changes. Maybe I decide to go ahead and play with light in this scene, to change...
