Hi...I'm completely new to AE (CS4) and am taking this for school. As I review some of the Lynda.com Videos (which are fantastic BTW) I notice that when the double arrow (scrubber) is used (for example to increase text size), I can see the changes immediately as it happens (real time in the preview screen of the video). But when I attempt it...I have to let go of my mouse before any changes take place. So...it causes me to have to make adjustments several times before I can see the best results.
Any suggestions? Can it be something to do with modifying a setting or something?
Also...I can't seem to change my display from frames to seconds on the time indicator frame at the bottom. Sorry for the trouble and thanks in advance.
Live Update --> second button at the top in left pane of the timeline. Other than that, only OpenGL could be the issue if the buffers don't get updated in realtime due to insufficient hardware or configuration issues.
