I am sure this is a noob question, but I do not use After Effects a ton. Partly because editing is always such a drag. I am currently working off of a 2010 mac book pro until I invest in a quality editing machine.
I know editing and playback in true resolution in real time is ideal, but my laptop cannot handle that.
Is there any way I can make editing in after effects smoother. Even if the project looks low res and I can out put at apporpiate resolution later???
