    Any tips for working with a composition with 1000+ of layers?

    Shpigford Level 1

      As part of an animation I'm working on, I've got a single comp with a little over 1000 individual shape layers (all circles of varying sizes).

       

      Right now, whenever I make any changes or just move the comp on the screen, it can take a number of seconds to make the adjustment (as opposed to being nearly instant for other layers).

       

      So, any tips on working with so many layers/shapes in a single comp? Anything I can do to help speed up working with that many items?

       

      For an idea of what I'm working with, here's a quick shot of all the shapes...each circle is its own layer (needed so I can animate each of them individually).
