Chapter 17. Output > Pausing and Stopping Rendering

Pausing and Stopping Rendering

After you click the Render button, Pause and Stop buttons appear in its place. Pausing a render comes in handy if you need to access other programs, or if you didn't plan ahead and find you need to clear some drive space for the render. Stopping a render won't adversely affect a frame sequence—you can pick up where you left off—but it will disturb the integrity of a movie file, creating two movies instead of one.

To pause rendering:

1.
After the composition has begun to render, click the Pause button in the Render Queue window (Figure 17.20).

Figure 17.20. Click the Pause button in the Render Queue window to pause rendering and use the desktop or other programs.


During the pause in rendering, you can use other applications or manage files on the desktop. You will not, however, be able to do anything in After Effects (not even close a window) except restart the render.

2.
To resume rendering, click Continue.

After Effects continues to render to the same file from where it left off.
