Editing sections of video

I’m attempting my first video. The goal is for 5 minutes length (9,000 frames at 30f/sec). Animated camera, grasses, trees, soundtrack. Also included are displaying a video on an animated plane. I’ve put groups of things on several layers due to the complexity. What I want to know is: Is there a way to view specific parts of the video so I know what needs to be changed without rendering the entire animation every time? Example, if I need to move an object to prevent it from merging through a tree, I’d like to do that in a couple of minutes instead of 2 days later. (assumed render time)

Thanks for any input,
