Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Using prerenders, part of After Effects CC 2017 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] So here's a scenario you might run into.…I've got a composition with several pre-comps,…and I'm trying to decide whether or not…I like this look or not, so I'm trying to lay out…this composition, maybe I need to move this here,…or it needs to be a different color,…or some other things that need to happen creatively,…these decisions that need to happen down the line,…but backing up, I'm not even sure if I like this widget…being a thin line or a fat line.…So to help us with our workflow,…we can speed things up by using proxies.…
You'll see here as I try to preview this…and make some changes here, it's taking a long time…to update because I'm using the 3D CINEMA 4D renderer here,…and that's fairly slow sometimes.…And I've got this thing pushed out with a lot of detail,…but to help me make my creative decisions faster,…I can make that proxy with this original pre-comp,…this 01_Widget, and so with my widget selected,…my composition selected, I'll come here…to composition, pre-render, and the idea here…
