    Help need to understand After Effects Rendering

    Robwalters2013

      Hi There

       

      I have just built my first editing pc.

       

      I want to do Editing in Premiere and AE.

       

      I understand it is best to share the load over 3 drives, and so i have

       

      C: SSD - OS/programs

       

      H: 1 TB HDD - media

       

      F: 500GB EXternal Hard drive - renders

       

      in premiere pro i have made it so i read of the media of H: and render to F:

       


      BUT in after effects i am having trouble understand all this disk cache and confirmed media cache business.

       

      I want to have my renders/previews go onto F: as i dont want my SSD to full up!

       

      what i want to know is where do i allocate the disk cache, confirmed media cache, and the data base stuff.

       

       

      or does after effects delete renders itsself afterwards.

       

       

       

      if anyone could help or give me a simple answer as to what these disk cache and media cache things are in AE that would be amazing

       

       

      Also when i hit space bar to play in AE it goes green for a few seconds then it leaves the bar behind blue!

       

      dont understand

       

      would appriciate  any hep
