Chris and Trish Meyer have released After Effects Apprentice Video Tutorial #10 onto PVC. This is the last one in the series from the book.
This short video 'tutorial goes over the procedure of rendering a movie from After Effects, including how to use the Render Queue. Topics covered include auto-naming versus manually naming rendered files, a good tour of the Render Settings and Output Module options (including recommended settings), and using Render Settings and Output Module templates. We cover interlacing, alpha channels, the underused Stretch and Crop sections of the Output Module dialog, how to set up batch rendering, and how to recover from an aborted render. Even if you’ve been using After Effects for a long time, we suspect there will be some “so that’s how they do that” moments throughout.'
