I'm kinda new to the After Effects game, but I really love the power that the program has to create professional looking stuff.
My question is how close are we to real-time? The real problem I have with the program is that I can't watch what I'm doing on a my output monitor and I can't watch anything in real-time, so I have to render every little thing.
Is there any hardware that speeds up the process? Do I have any options?
