RAM Previewing Regions

Previewing large sections of your project using RAM Preview requires large quantities of
RAM to store frames. You may not have enough RAM to store all frames you want to
preview. You can restrict which frames are rendered by choosing to preview the play
range or a selection. Using RAM Preview on a selection renders all visible layers in the
project from the first frame of the selection until the last.
