This node pre-composites a layer so it can be rendered inside another layer. Any exposed values from inside that layer will also be carried over into the new layer.
|Source Layer||Select a layer to precomposite.|
|Render Width / Height||Change the width and height of the rendered layer. When set to 0, render width and height are set to scene resolution.|
|Preview In Viewport||Preview the effect blended with alpha in the viewport.|
|Preview RGB In Viewport||Preview the RGB values in the viewport.|
|Preview Alpha In Viewport||Preview the alpha values in the viewport.|
|Time Mode|| Change relative time in which the precomped layer is running.
|Time Offset||Offset the start time of the layer.|
|Playback Speed||Speed at which the layer is played at.|
|Looping||Enable or disable the layer from looping at the end.|
|Loop Start Time||Offset the start time of the layer after each loop.|
|Update Active||Enable or disable the layer from re-rendering to the current scene. When disabled, a static image will be output.|
|Optimise Memory On Idle||This will dynamically remove memory data if the node isn’t active. This can optimise memory usage, but can cause issues loading a precomp if it is sufficiently large.|
|Hide Handles, Bounding Boxes and Range Indicators||Toggles the visibility of handles, bounding boxes and range indicators.|
