I bought the template Elegant Extrusion and is run ok. But it’s very, very slow. In the Master Composition, for example, i can not even run the preview, Just keep trying to render the images. I simply changed the logo in the project and the image is ok. But I put to render yesterday, is still rendering and still shows 40h of render!! Why is this happening??? I have an iMac 2,4GHz, 3Gb RAM and a CS4 After Effects.Please, help me!!!
I’m the author of the file, and I’m not sure if you’ve emailed me or whether I’ve addressed your issues. The comments section of the Elegant Extrusion product has numerous examples of how to reduce the render time on this particular file:
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thanks for your purchase!
You bring up a good point. I spend maybe 30 minutes total, recording and encoding a video recap of the project, giving a “tour” of whats inside my AE files. I may show how to customize certain things or create different effects with the project.
Most of the feedback I’ve gotten is that buyers would rather have a quick video overview, rather than read through a lengthy, detailed PDF .
It’s not my favorite part of the process, and yeah, I’d rather be spending the time jumping on the next project, but I also feel as though it provides a bit of help and backup, and might help answer a question that someone might have.
If the video tutorial wasn’t included, that person with the question might email me, which would cause me to stop what I’m doing and write an email response, explaining the process. As you can imagine, this could become repetitive, so I feel as though spending 30 minutes creating a quick overview is worth it, whether or not the buyer even watches it.
Its kinda like those extra buttons that come on dress shirts… sure, you may never need them, but they’re really nice to have if you ever find yourself in need.
