Lesson 2. Ballet Special Bumper > Previewing with RAM Preview

Previewing with RAM Preview

You can also preview portions of the composition playing back at real-time using RAM Preview. See "RAM Preview" . If you are unable to load all of the specified frames for a RAM Preview, try decreasing the length of the work area, reducing the resolution of the composition, or allocating more RAM to After Effects. You can also preview every other frame by pressing Shift+0 on the numeric keypad.

  1. Set the work area for the frames to preview to begin at 7:15 and end at 10:00.

  2. Click the RAM Preview button on the Time Controls palette.

    Note that After Effects replaces the jog and shuttle controls with an update showing which frames it's processing as it loads them into RAM, and when finished reports how many of those could be loaded, and the playback frame rate.

  3. After a few seconds, you should see the frames within the work area playing back at real-time in the Composition window.

  4. Press any key to stop the preview.
