    Interrupt / Cancel Comp Viewer Preview Render

    Marc Trzepla Level 1

      I have an intensive comp that takes a while to preview even at lower resolutions.  Most of the time I don't mind waiting for the preview but sometimes I realize I made an error and want to stop the preview process but can't and just have to wait it out.

       

      I've tried hitting Escape, turning on the Caps lock, trying to move the cursor/playback head to a less intensive section of the timeline... nothing.  I've even tried turning on Caps Lock and going to another program and coming back to After Effects but that too doesn't work - After Effects just churrrrrrns away until the frame is previewed.

       

      How do I 'stop the presses' with a frame that's previewing in the comp viewer in After Effects?

       

      Thank you,
