All requests and remarks posted on this blog, have been shared with the developers of the concerning products. The Feature Requests blog is my independent way of sharing, and recording both ideas and annoyance about software. Improvement is the main goal.
After Effects is very picky when it comes to real time previewing. It wants us to select a zoom level that correspondents with the resolution, does not like >8bits color, and is slow when a color workspace is selected for the project.
Why not give the user the option to ignore these and let it preview without workspace and in 8 bits or whatever we slect for the preview? Maybe even the codec?
