I’m new to AE. (Ok to groan, I’m groaning too)
I’ve been working through some short clips and getting acquainted with AE. I’m working on a 3 second clip with 4 layers. Some footage of a door with a man going though it. A vector graphic of an eye above the door and a rotoscoped layer of the same footage to allow the man to pass over the eye. There’s a null layer with a tracking effect on it that the eye is tied to.
Every time I do something to this clip it takes forever to render. I do something and wait and wait and wait, while AE renders whatever I’ve changed. (This is incredibly tedious, but I’m not here to complain, I’m here to find a fix) CPU usage is up over 100% (how does that work?) sometimes up to 200%. The other two clips I’ve done didnt have this problem. Occasionally I’d have to wait for a bit, but not like this.
I found a guy on YouTube who suggested closing the library panel and that seemed to work initially. It didnt last however.
ANY advice, or suggestions, or a clue to what might be happening and how it might be fixed would be vastly appreciated.
Be well, A.

check your composition size..usually large files sizes or large comps slow down AE

You mentioned rotoscoping. Are you using the Rotobrush tool? If yes, you should be sure to at lease Freeze it, or possibly even pre-render that layer.
