When using the viewer window content that falls outside of the bounds of the composition is cropped. Is there a way to show all content similar to how flash works? This would arranging things a whole lot easier!
In short, nope.
You could expand the composition bounds to be very large (large enough to see all of your content), then nest your huge comp in a new comp that uses your output frame size. In the huge comp, set up guides, a guide layer, or some other reference so you know where the bounds of your final comp exist.
Haha! I was about to say how this is annoying - i'm trying to make a big structure and then zoom around it and then I realised....build the structure and then make the camera move, not the object! It's obvious really! Ugh...you've got to love fridays.
