Question by plaidsnow: What do I do?? This is the message I get after trying to open Adobe CS4 After Affects?
I clicked run, and tried to run Adobe Photoshop After Affects, it said, “The file archive part of Adobe After Affects CS4 is missing. You need all part in the same folder to extract Adobe After Affects CS4 Installer. Please download all parts.”

Q&A: Problems with my intro rendering in Adobe After Effects CS4?

Question by Chicken Flay: Problems with my intro rendering in Adobe After Effects CS4?
My intro i created in AE CS4 has some problems. When I render it, all it renders is my text, but not my effects or background. It plays sound, but that doesnt help much. What should i do? Ive tried the 2 different ways of rendering, and they didnt work. Whats the problem?

Answer:

Answer by Cazador
By render I assume you mean like the final, export render?

That does sound a bit strange, but check the following:

1.) Isolation for all layers should be OFF. If isolation would be on, it would be indicated by the circle dot to the left of the layer, next to the eye icon.
2.) FX selection should be ON. To turn the effect for that layer on, select the FX in the check mark boxes towards the middle of the layer properties.
3.) Just make sure the effects for effects within a layer are turned on, as indicated by the icon FX in the check mark box in the effect properties window.

Check those things for us to see if any of that might be the problem.
I have a feeling that it’s not…your problem sounds a lot more complicated since you state it so clearly, and seem to aware of how things work in AE.

Let us know!

good luck!

How to increase RAM Preview length in After Effects CS4?

Question by Pandemicide: How to increase RAM Preview length in After Effects CS4?
I got Adobe After Effects CS4 and when I do the RAM preview it only does 1 second of rendering before it just loops. I want to have it go longer so I can preview more. Is there a way to do that?

Answer:

Answer by jivi
The length of a RAM preview is determined by the number of frames that can be stored in the RAM cache. The RAM cache exists in the address space of the foreground After Effects process. By allocating more memory to the foreground After Effects process, less memory is allocated to the background processes. This allocation of memory to the foreground process can cause fewer background processes to be used to render multiple frames simultaneously, so there is a tradeoff between faster rendering and longer RAM previews. Drag the slider to adjust the memory allocation to a balance that suits your work and computer system.
CPUs To Leave For Other Applications Set this value to a number other than 0 to prevent After Effects from using all of the CPUs (processor cores) in your computer system. For example, if you have a computer with 8 CPUs, setting this value to 2 leaves 6 CPUs for After Effects.
