Adding some pop to AE with OpenGL
A lot of people I meet that are using After Effects don’t necessarily take advantage of all the software that comes with it (Remember your Cycore)
The same holds true for setting up AE to take advantage of your system. Today’s quick tip is about turning on OpenGL inside of After Effects.
Go to Preferences>Preview
After you enable it, it should look something like this under OpenGL info…
Finally, towards the bottom of your comp window you should click on the fast previews button and make sure OpenGL is on or set to interactive
There are times when you DON’T want to have this on, but generally, it’s better to have it on than not. We’ll hopefully discuss that in another post.
