In Topic: caps lock? really?

Yesterday, 12:52 PM

I keep my Render Queue panel in the same frame as my compositions — that way when I hit render all I see is the progress of the queue. I think I'm getting the same speed boost as CapsLock without the ALL CAPS SCREAMING.


If AE doesn't have to blit the screen each frame, I think you get the speed up either way — but I don't remember the last time (or version) that I tested out the theory. Now I have something to do while eating lunch at my desk tomorrow.

Somebody ran some tests on this a while back, eg comp window foremost, comp window behind, comp window closed, caps lock on or off etc. Can't recall the results though.  I also have render queue docked with comp window.


And yes, I was also thinking recently that it's starting to seem a bit antiquated.

There's a free effect called YYRamp+ which works a lot better than the aging native Ramp effect

Yes, good news for us lot.  About time the competition heated up again, last viable alternative to AE I used was Puffin Commotion… or maybe Combustion. Nothing wrong with Nuke, just a bit too pricey for us.

A low cost VFX-centric camera rig with free Fusion Studio could be really interesting.
