Simple question for anyone familiar with After FX

How the heck do u keep ur Play\Preview rendering going when u click off After FX and onto another program or window..? (unfocused)

I cant very well sit here and do nothing while it takes 30 mins to preview render something, but as soon as I do anything else, even click inside AFX, the preview rendering stops.

 

Carguy... anyone ?

 

Thanks in advance, its driving me batty.

two systems, one dedicated to processing the AfterFX? Sounds like a work thing do they have the resources available? (non-technical answer)

If the bottleneck is the processor...don't know what can help...but, if adding RAM could help, maybe this might make things go a bit faster?

The alternative would be ramdisk...

you can turn on the option in general rider secret if you dare...
hold shift on your keyboard after  opening new composition now click on edit/preferences/general/secret turn on the two options and try...

As far as i know when the (Danger!) thing is activated it will keep rendering until its done

Hmm... doesn't help, when i click off of the AFX app, the Preview stops.

 

perhaps Im not explaining clearly what Im trying to do..

 

Lets say i load an animation effect onto a solid... I want to see the preview, but of course the frames have to be rendered to see it at real time..

 

so... U click preview\play.. it starts rendering states, right.. but.. as soon as u click anywhere else on your screen.. either in or out of AFX.. it.. stops.

 

Basically.. unless u sit here and just watch your screen as the it renders ur preview across the timeline...it stops rendering the preview.

Ahhhhh.......Ok! You don't even want to know what was going through my head after...."load an animation into a solid and I want to see the preview."
