    Hi there,

    I’m completely new to AE, in fact I borrowed a Mac with AE installed in order to complete a short project. Never mind all the tutorials I’ve watched, I’m failing at very beginning, idiotic step.

    Whenever I start a new composition and drag a clip onto the comp. and want to play/preview it, it just shows the first few (usually 8) frames of the clip in a loop. It’s exactly the length of the green bar on the timeline (I’ve used FCP extensively in the past and that was usually the rendered part – no idea if that’s the same with AE? But didn’t manage to render the whole clip if not for output?!?). I’m battling with this problem the whole day and have no clue as to how to overcome the very first hurdle to start working on my project . Please help! TIA, Lilly
