    Render Time: Animating hundreds of photos to form a mosaic

    Weatherman1200 Level 1

      Currently attempting to animate in 800 small photos to form a mosaic. I am using a pre-setup PSD (17MB) and have set up an expression with a control layer to animate the scale of each photo. Essentially they just all grow onto the screen to form my mosaic. Everything works fine and I'm able to preview at full quality with reasonable speed, but when I export out of Render Queue it estimates my time at 20+ hours and when left overnight to render, my system locked up around 85% complete. Any ideas? I'm pretty green on After Effects, so hoping this isn't the norm and I'm just screwing up somewhere.
