High Quality Playback

You can view a high quality playback of your animatic in the Playback view. By default, this view does not appear in the software. You must enable this option in the Preferences and relaunch the software to make this option available.

The Playback view pre-renders frames (composites camera moves, effects, transitions, etc.) and saves them in a cache, then uses this cache for playback. The result is an accurate real-time preview.

The Playback view allows for the display of information pertaining to the current frame. This can include captions and dialog, the project timecode and the current scene and panel—see Playback Preferences.

You can now define the playback range and select the playback range options. You can also redefine the working range by setting the Start and Stop frames.
