This might be a silly question, but I can't seem to find an answer either way. I have four after effects comps queued up in my render queue, it's currently processing the first one. If it hit "pause" and close out of after affects and/or restart my laptop, will I have to restart the render from the beginning?
Main reason I'm asking: I'm in the middle of a project and IT might have to do something to my computer, and install something (possibly including a reboot), and I'm not sure when, just "whenever they have a moment."
So not my normal workflow, but I'm curious if anyone else has run into this and knows the answer?
Thanks in advance!
If you render an image sequence, it's not a big deal: stop the render, save the project and pick up where you left off.
If you render a move, you'd have to re-render the entire movie that's currently rendering.
Anything else, e.g. Save Frame As or export audio, take such a short time that you can tell the IT person to hold onto his/her shirt for a couple of seconds.
