    Hey I followed the tutorial and have a finished product I’m happy with. I rendered it over night because it was going to take 5 and a half hours. I get up this morning to see the video is 31GB, firstly, is that normal for the video to be so big? When I play the video its like its buffering a Youtube video lmao. The audio and video have like lag spikes where nothing moves or plays for a second or two. If anyone knows if I could be doing something wrong, I’d appreciate the help!

    Hi Filmion. Awesome work. I tried to render it using AME with all the possible presets including "Match Source – High bitrate", "YouTube 720p", "Facebook 720p" etc but the render time goes no less than 5/6 hours. Please advise how can we render it quickly. It takes too long to render. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello, it’s my first time using after effects (free trial), I have an interview video that is roughly 25 minutes, I inserted the audio, and did the spectrum. It’s only playing the first 30 seconds, I don’t know what to do…

    Can you explain how to export once everything is done? There are two compositions, the music and the FINAL, how do we merge these together?
