    After effects EXTREMELY LAGGY

    OrangeJuicee Community Member

      Hey guys, this is a huge problem I really hope you guys can fix. So I am on AE CS6 Version and I am working on a project in a composition with some effects, but not NEARLY enough to cause this much of a problem. So, with these effects, every time I try move a keyframe, or adjust the CTI, or change a single value, After effects lags and freezes for like 1 minute and then continues on normally just to present me with the same issue. So basically every time I make edits in my composition after effects freezes up.


      Now for the specs....


      - MacBook Pro on OS X Lion 10.7.5

      - 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 Processor

      - 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM

      - Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB


      In the Media disc cache section of preferences, I have 500 GB alotted on an SSD 1TB external drive (Yes I have tried emptying disk cache)


      Everything in the discussion has worked extremely well on my machine, and the problem came up just recently.


      -OpenGL is disabled


      These are all of the effects included (please note I have used all of the without problem):



      -3d camera tracker

      -Trapcode Shine


      I am also working with 29.97 Fps 1280 x 720 dimensions. The file is a .mp4 with a H.264 and AAC codec.


      I really don't know what the problem is. If you are reading this PLEASE take a shot at fixing this. I will be happy to supply ANY more information you guys need so just ask! Thank you for your time.
