Chapter 8. Playback, Previews, and Ram > Suppressing Window Updates

Suppressing Window Updates

Once you get over the initial excitement of seeing your changes in the Composition window, you may discover that what seemed to be a blessing can also be a curse. If frames are difficult to render, it can take time to update windows. You may have already noticed how the Selection tool cycles between black and white as a particularly difficult frame renders (Figure 8.27). The lower-right corner of the Composition window also includes a small activity bar (provided the window is sized wide enough for you to see it). When previewing gets in the way of your progress, you can prevent the Footage, Layer, and Composition windows from updating by activating your keyboard's Caps Lock key.
