    Selection tool blinking (black / white)

    matinciel Level 1



      this is maybe a newbie question, but I can't solved this problem.


      I'm working in project with about 80 layers 3D (mosty images from Photoshop, one camera, some null objects, some texts, one solid with a grid effect and a sound layer in .wav).

      Most of the layers are locked. I'm working on the layers that are in the bottom.


      I try to animate the position of a layer manually with the selection tool. When I pass over the image in the composition front view or camera view, the selection tool (arrow) is blinking white and black.


      If I try to click and drag this image, a new "window" pop up which shows the layer itself.


      And some times the image is dragged well creating a new keyframe.




      When this happens I try to select a new layer / or the layer / or the layer's position line or try to click elsewhere. Sometimes everything goes well, but mainly not. I can't figure out what's happening.


      Thanks in advance.

      The probleme does not appear during rendering but :

      Use of OpenGL is checked when renderring

      Multiprocessing is enable but disable by AE due to a lack of memory (that's the outgoing message).
