I can see that method working well, but in this project the precomps (and there a lot of them) overlap each other quite a bit. That's why the main comps are so long. And when I go from one main to the next main comp, I have the end of the previous comp at the top of the next one to keep the flow going. Anyway, rendered 124 pieces over five hours last night. Now to check them out.
And shifting gears a bit, any suggestions for batching 124 MOVs into WMVs?

Not sure of the way your files are built, and this probably won't work since it sounds like your using a lot of layers across different portions, but could you make pre comps of the bits you want in each part and then drag all the pre comps over to the render que?

Still works that way in 5.5.
What is so tedious is creating the work area, then having to make a custom selection. I'm breaking down about one hundred clips out of maybe 12 comps. Making sure I select the Custom option each time is a real pain. It would be so much easier if I could select a piece of the clip and have it stick without going through the extra 4 clicks – that is when I remember to do it. Cause if I forget, and I do sometimes, it's a really big pain to go back and figure out what I screwed up.
