I have been using After Effects for a little while now and I want to get some general advice from people, anything that might seem useful would be awesome.
Anyway, getting onto my specific problem. You see, AE have a limited timeline, and cutting/moving clips around is not nearly as intuitive as Sony Vegas or other linear editing software. This is difficult for me as it forces me to manually, cut and render every single clip I want to use, which becomes a big problem if I have to later extend that clip, I am limited to what I render.
And rendering is generally just a long and laborious job.
Is there a feature that allows me to quickly scan though entire episodes and pick out small sections to add to my composition? If not, what program do you use to cut/render your clips so there manageable in After Effects. It would be awesome to do all my editing in AE and not need Sony Vegas.
Thanks to all that help.
