This seems to have only started happening recently, and it's a pain. After you preview an effect in full screen, the time navigator brackets are pulled to the very start and end of the video. You return from a fullscreen video preview to see your timeline extended over the whole duration of the project.
Is there some way to turn this off? I frequently work on small sections of a project, regularly watching full-screen previews to check how various changes look, and after the tenth or so time what starts as a minor irritation becomes completely infuriating. It seems like something easily fixed, but I've had no luck finding out how.
Thanks in advance.
I am not seeing this. AE version? OS? What changed on your system?
Ah, okay, this is a more interesting problem than I thought. Sorry I didn't put that info in before; my assumption was this was a poorly-considered feature which could be easily turned off and I was just too dumb to figure out how.
I'm on Windows 7 x64, running AE version 126.96.36.199 (as far as I'm aware this is the latest version). I haven't done anything dramatic with my PC lately or with AE settings. If it helps, I'm running with: an Intel Core i7-2600 CPU @ 3.4GHz, 16GB RAM, using an Nvidia GeForce GT530.
