    After Effects CC and Windows 8 not playing well together.  How can I fix this?


      I thought the problem was a specific project file, but then it happened during another, and then another that I was building without any funky assets.  After Effects suddenly ceases to respond, it flickers uncontrollably while Windows 8 Explorer becomes semi-unresponsive as well.  When AE becomes responsive again, the same thing happens when I go to make another edit or two.


      Troubleshooting: What I noticed is when I go to the Task Manager to kill Explorer, AE responds again.  Until I go to make another few edits at least, where it then starts to flicker uncontrollably again.  Does anybody else have this problem?  This is really putting a kink in my workflow.


      Windows 8, 64-Bit

      Intel Core i7 3930K @ 3.2-3.8 GHz

      64GB RAM

      EVGA GeForce GTX 780 (x2)
