Anyone know if there's a critical mass with an after effects project file? For example, I have a 6 minute film I'm working on with hundreds of precomps. Is there a time where there's too much going on in the project file? I'm versioning like crazy, but I was just wondering.
Not that I'm aware of. I think the largest one I've ever made was around 98mb. At that point, the file became way too cumbersome, and I ended up splitting up the project more efficiently into multiple project files. There may be a limit, but if not, then it would probably be any file size limits imposed by your OS.
I'm at 45 mb... I'm just worried about it getting broken. Problem is, I'm building virtual sets, and it would be a pain to split it all up... might have to happen eventually.
