Efficient Previews in Adobe After Effects

Unless you are running After Effects on decked out Super Boxx Workstation then it is a good idea to be aware of the best quality and draft quality settings when working. Since I work in After Effects Commadore 64 with about 20 kb of rom I only work in draft mode exclusively, just kidding.

Working in Draft mode in After Effects will allow for faster production and is one of the best ways to reduce your ram consumption. Best quality mode is great for previewing your completed work or when you have lots of ram to throw around.

Another ingredient to better previews is your resolution settings which are Full, Half, Third, and Quarter. Full is the highest quality, half is still is a step down but still viewable and the best resolution to get work done. Third is a lot worse and I think Quarter is just there to allow you to create previews that will inspire you to purchase a new computer.
