Join Lee Lanier for an in-depth discussion in this video Utilizing prerendering and precomps, part of VFX Techniques: Crowd Replication with After Effects.
By this point, we have built up quite a complex project, there are a number of compositions…and also quite a few layers and effects.…What would be good is to take a look at ways to save time.…One way is to pre-render one of the compositions. So I'll write that composition out of the disc.…That'll be loaded much faster when it comes time to do new calculations down the road.…You can also pre-compose certain layers which automatically nest those layers into a new…composition which again can save time once a composition has been previewed to the RAM preview.…Let's try the pre-render first. I want to go back to SetDress.…
That's pretty much done right now.…So I can have that open then go up to Composition and go to Pre-render.…What Pre-render normally does is it takes that composition and adds it to the render queue.…Now this is possible, if you're using this version, version 6.…It might pop up a window where it asks you where to save first.…Once you pick a place to save out your file, then you'll still be given the render queue.…
