Proxy Workflow for Element?

Postby harryb on 07/26/2012, 10:31 am

Hi, I'm really enjoying using Element so far -- It's hard to believe it's only been out for about a week and a half. But is there a quick way to work in low res (set up all your animation, shading, lighting, materials, etc.) and then switch to a much higher resolution to render?

I know you can down sample the active viewport but say you start with a 720P format and later want to render a few stills of the animation at 4500 x 2592 or something. Right now the only way I've found to do this is re-size the comp in the composition settings, then re-size each layer in the layer settings and possibly adjust any animation paths and effects that might have gotten screwed up along the way.

This is the only way I've found to get the crisp resolution without up-sampling. It's not just an Element issue either. AE seems to have always had a weird way of going about dealing with how it manages this stuff (at least to me. ;)

Thanks in advance for any tips...
