This program is pissing me the hell off. I have a homework assignment due tomorrow and I can't get anything done. I'm totally new to the program. I have read the help but still can't get no where.
What I have to do is create a 30 sec animation. But Whenever I try to preview something it takes so freaking long and it won't preview all the way. Whatever I'm trying to preview will stop like halfway through. I have disk/ram cache on. Everything's really frustrating the hell outta me. I had a solid w/an effect, I move the effect's keyframe marks to later in the the timeline where i'd like it to occur. I try to preview it to see if it's coming out correctly and what do I get? I get a preview that took long as hell to load for just 10 seconds of the 30, with the effect looking like it started from the beginning of it and then the video stops in the middle of it while the timeline cursor continues moving as if it were playing.
What am I doing wrong if anything? What should I do? I've got less than 12 hrs to complete this assignment.
My specs are:
Pentium 4 2.8GHz

ATI 9600 Pro
Sound Blaster Audigy
