A Quick Tour of Adobe After Effects >  Rendering the project

Rendering the project

Rendering converts your final composition into a finished movie, ready for playback on the media of your choice. Rendering speed depends on the complexity of the composition, the speed of your computer, and the render settings you choose. For details about rendering, see Chapter 11 in the Adobe After Effects 4.0 User Guide.

  1. If you turned off Continuously Rasterize for the N.ai layer, double-click the Comp 1 file in the Project folder and then, in the Time Layout window, click the Continuously Rasterize switch for the N.ai layer to turn it back on.

  2. In the Project window, select Comp 2, and choose Composition > Make Movie.

  3. Locate and open the Tour folder on your hard disk, and then type HOT.mov for the name and click Save.

    Note

    After Effects for Windows adds the default file extension .AVI to the name of the movie when you first specify it. In step 7, when you select the QuickTime Movie format, the file extension is automatically changed to .MOV.


    The Render Queue window opens.
