Adjusting the duration.


I am quite new to this software.
Apologies if I am asking a question that were asked too many times.

As you can see the clip duration is 10s but it played only till 8s.
I tried adjusting from 10 to 30 in the Composition Settings but same results.

Where should I adjust?

Thank you.

FAQ: Why does RAM preview only play part of my composition?

In other words, upgrade more RAM?

My current 2GB RAM is not enough.

And to be a bit more helpful, 8GB should be the minimum nowadays... at work I've got 24GB and it makes a lot of difference.

Thank you so much.
No wonder I can't seem to do anything about it on the software.

I was surprised when render a short video with full resolution.
Huge file it become...1.4GB.

I guess it's time to upgrade more RAM.

Is there a thread in this forum where users can share their work?

Changing resolution in your preview window from Full, to half or quarter will help let you see more frames.

I agree.

Full...although the quality were amazing...the file size is just too big.
Half...satisfying result.

In short, After Effects requires a lot of RAM.
Those with MAC should not have any problems.
Me with Windows ^^

I am learning slowly.
Planning to try those teleport, Hancock and fireball effects now.
