Since our effect’s calculations are quite heavy, you can end up with a few seconds of render time per frame. This can be annoying if the desired look is already achieved and you work on other parts of your composition.
We do recommend you pre-render the layer with Transfusion, to do that:
- Right-click on the layer, click pre-compose and select “Move all attributes into the new composition”
- Double-click this newly created composition to open it (in the project panel or in the timeline)
- Go to menu Composition > Pre-render
- Hit the Render button
Your composition containing the Transfusion effect will be rendered and automatically re-imported as a proxy so you don’t have to compute the effect every frames.
