I turn off adaptive resolution (fast previews) as a matter of course but it seems that I have to do this specifically for every composition window.
The default is apparently for adaptive resolution to be on.
This is a little tedious and I wondered if there is a way to change this default behaviour.
I would expect to find such a setting in preferences but that only offers an option to set the degree of adaptive resolution - not turn it off completely.
Obviously not desperate but it would be one less hassle.
New comps will remember the last settings.
By the time I discovered that I didn't like adaptive resolution and then how to do something about it I already had a couple of CS6 project files and lots of comps on the current job.
I suppose I would have realised this before too long but I'm grateful to you for taking the time and getting me there quicker.
Thanks - Rod
You can set the adaptive resolution limit down to 1/2 to migitate the effect. Since this is a general preference it will apply to all your projects.
