Rendering / exporting After Effects project

Posted on 2006-05-14

I'm a beginner with After Effects, have created a project and would like to export my movie now.  On previous versions of my project, I have been able to export the entire "clip", but now when I try to export or render, it only puts out one frame.

I must have pushed the wrong button somewhere - anyone know what that button was?

    you need to "add to render que"

    Opening the reder que dialog will allow you to select the output save destination as well as format.

    The problem was happening when I export or render, as my question mentioned.

    I'vew been able to work around it by placing the composition I want to render in a new composition and then rendering that.  But still would love to know what I could have done to make it only want to do one frame from the original composition.
