Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Use prerenders, part of After Effects CC 2019 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] Here's a scenario you might run into.…I've got a composition with several precomps,…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 precomp,…this 01 widget, and so with my widget selected,…my composition selected, I'll come here…to composition pre-render.…The idea here is that we'll use a lower resolution version…
