Hooray for empiricism. Brad Chmielewski tests a couple of performance tips.
Just a quick shout-out to Brad Chmielewski who just posted a test that demonstrates the benefits of pressing Caps Lock and closing the Composition panel when rendering.
There are a lot of tips for improving performance in After Effects, and I’ve frequently heard people question the relative benefits of each. Well, Brad has just shown us all how in only a few minutes (less time than folks waste on just about any forum argument), anyone can get empirical evidence that beats any speculation.
Great work, Brad!
Stephen Schleicher has done a similar set of tests and confirms the value of closing the Composition panel when rendering.
