For about several months now I have a problem with my computer. Whenever I open a project in Premiere Pro, Photoshop, etc. my computer does well. When I open After Effects everything is fine too, but at the moment when I open a project within AE, my computer starts to make noise (hard disks), and is suddenly slower. Now such a project can even be, just one title in a comp. It doesn't even have to be a big project.
After I close After Effects, my computer is still slow for several minutes (~10 min.). I realize that in Premiere Pro. Playback doesn't go as smooth anymore, PPro and other applications freeze for several seconds somethimes, etc.
Since my computer is only for work, it would surprice me if I have malware, spyware or virusses. I have done a scan and a defrag, but that didn't helped.
This is my technical information:
This computer is exactly one year old now.
Now my question to the community is, if this is a comon problem? If this could be a bug within After Effects? (I have tried a reïnstall) Or are there any tools to scan/clean for such a problem?
Thanks in advance,
There was an After Effects-specific issue with odd slowness that others have reported. That is going to be fixed in the update that's coming in a couple of weeks (mid-October was the promised date). Hopefully that issue is the same as yours and the coming update solves it for you too.
