Does having several guided layers in your compositions increase your render times? Some of these are simple solid layers but some of these are large videos guided out and used only as reference for making animation changes.
OSX Yosemite v.10.10.5
After Effects 2015.0.1
I have never seen an increase in render time from guide layers. Their pixels should never be included in the calculations.
Thanks for the quick response. I figured it wouldn't but at the same time I thought it still would have to make the calculation to keep that layer off/out of the render.
