    AE CS5 Preview rendering

    Geoff Vane Level 1

      When I render previews with the RAM preview button, I often get just a short sequence and then rendering stops automatically.

      Now I thought this is due to RAM shortage.

       

      Thing is, when I press the normal play button, I first get a realtime playback of the rendered part and then rendering is continued.

      When I try the RAM preview button again, it just renders the same short sequence.

       

      - Why can't the RAM preview button render more, while the the normal play button can?

      - Why do preview renders often disappear when I try to render some more with the RAM preview button?

       

      I find myself pressing the preview render button over and over, with very unpredictable outcome of what will happen: rendering extra material or deleting the existing preview and render another part. Is there any way to take control over what RAM preview does?
