Chapter 8. Playback, Previews, and Ram > Using the Live Update Option

Using the Live Update Option

There are two ways you can view a comp while you make changes to a layer property; or, in After Effects' parlance, during interactions. By default, the Comp window updates after you alter the property—after you release the mouse when dragging the layer or property value, or after you press Return (Mac) or Enter (Windows) when changing the value numerically (Figures 8.12 and 8.13). Alternatively, you can set the window to update during interactions, utilizing a feature called Live Update. With Live Update enabled, you can see the layer change as you adjust the property (Figure 8.14).
