Sometimes when I go through a lot of footage I like to hit L to play things back at high speeds. Lately I've noticed that sometimes when I do this, the audio will cut in and out as I listen (the video

In the Render Settings dialog, change the Resolution. It has the same values (Full, Half, Third, Quarter, Custom) as the Composition viewer panel. Or you can set it to Current Settings to use whatever

Hi Walter. Thanks for your help. My RAM should be good to go at 32GB. It's set to reserve 6GB for other applications. So usually it's splitting RAM between AE and Premiere, and sometimes AME or Illust

Another solution would be to cut the mask path and use it to make a shape layer with no stroke and a solid 100% opacity color. Put it right above the original layer, and parent the shape layer to your

The puppet pin tool is a raster effect, so you can't use it with the continually rasterize option. It messes it up. So like you've noticed, you need to precomp it. Here's how I do it... Take the eleme

Direct Collision Detection (Ebberts Formula)

Re: Track Motion, but on a Segment?

Bad news is that Platinum 12 (my version) doesn't support nesting. Good news is that simply rendering it and then placing the rendered track into the new video looks good enough. So I'll just do that.
