When it comes to rendering my project, about 30 minues duration, I run into problems. If I add some effects to my timeline it takes along time to render. After it is rendered and the line above the tomeline changes from red to green then I save my project. Next time I open it a large amout needsn re-renderin, I must not understand the process or am doing something incorrectly.
What do I do with the preiously rendered files, delete or what?
Thanks for all help! Hoppy 100
Can you tell us the full specs. of your computer. Pay special attention to the I/O, i.e. your HDD's, and also to the destination location for your Scratch Disks.
Loosing the links to Render Files can happen with external, or networked drives, or because of permissions issues on a Mac, plus other possible causes.
Good luck, and under normal conditions, one should NOT loose the links to the Render Files.
My computer consists of a AMD 3600 gighertz with 4 gig of ran and using APE10 64 Bit.
I have changed to a SSD drive exclusively to store the scratch files. But I would appreciate very much knowing the following:
1. Does the program use the previously rendered files each time video files are loaded for a new session or can they be disposed of?
2. When I render the complete video and save it Then reloade it the Red bar once again covers more than one half the time tine..
3 I have had about 4 video effects in the project but will reduce the video effects and
see how that works out.
Thank you for your much apperciated help. Hoppy100
One comment regarding your OS and computer: obviously, you have Windows in the 64-bit version. That 4GB of RAM is just barely enough to run Windows 64 (especially Win7 or Win8), with little left over for other programs. I would bump that up to 8GB, or more.
Good luck, and you might want to see this article on Rendering: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4068277#4068277
