is there a way or an expression that can be applied to an effect so that it will be off while you're working, but is on when you render? For instance, I'm using the pixel blur effect, and it slows down my interactivity while I'm working, but would like it available in the renders.
This is possible in any node in Nuke. And I think it has something to do with the opacity, because that's where you set the expression. It's very handy. Are there any "render only" flags in the expressions?

Turning of an effect in AE equates disabling a node in Nuke. so there you have it. Not much more than that with the only real trick in Nuke being its render scripts and overrides, which AE does not offer.
They should really make this an option, it would be very helpful...
Example for me: I do music videos with hundreds of green screen shots comped together, I normally need to apply Denoiser III (red giant) and Key Cleaner to all shots which are CPU/GPU heavy effects that I don't need to view after setting up. It's a PITA to have to toggle all on in each comp, it would be great to have it render only.
