Previewing and Playing Back Effects
To preview your effects, you will have to perform a quick render. Effects must be calculated before they can be viewed in real time.
|1.||In the Playback toolbar, click the Render and Play button.|
The Play module opens and loads the frames.
|2.||Once the frames are loaded, click the Play button in the Play window.|
To make your previews calculate faster, you may want to render them out at a smaller resolution. You can use the Preview Resolution command so you will not have to modify the resolution of your scene every time you make a check preview.
The Preview Resolution command allows you to quickly ask for a preview at either a quarter, half or three-quarter of the scene resolution. You can even customize the preview resolution size.
|1.||From the top menu, select View > Preview Resolutionand a resolution: Same as Scene Resolution, 3/4 of Scene Resolution, 1/2 of Scene Resolution, 1/3 of Scene Resolution, 1/4 of Scene ResolutionorCustom.|
If you selected the Custom option, the Custom Preview Resolution dialog box opens.
|2.||In the dialog box, select a resolution from the presets or type a new X-Y value.|
|4.||Preview your effects animation.|
