Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Retiming layers with prerenders, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
Since our project has so many particles and different effects, it makes sense to…prerender our clips before we retime them. So let's move to the zero one kick…composition, this has the most graphics out of any of our builds, so we'll go…ahead and retime this clip. To do that, let's select all the layers in…the composition, then go up under Layer and choose Precompose.…Let's name our pre comp Kick for precomp, and click Okay.…Now instead of rendering this clip, let's open our precomp and actually render this…composition. There's a nice import and replace function…that we can use so once we render the Quicktime it will automatically be…imported back into our project. Let's go up under Composition and chose…Add to Render Queue. In the Render Queue, you can leave your…render settings set to Best and your output module to Lossless.…
On Windows, it'll probably be Windows Media, on the Mac it will be a Quicktime…file. It you click on the word Lossless, you can…go to the Post-Render Action pull down. Change that from None to Import & Replace…
