Is it After Effects that is flickering, or the entire screen?
Do you have updated GPU drivers?
Show a screenshot of the GPU Information dialog box in After Effects (which you can show by clicking GPU Information in the Previews category of the Preferences dialog box).
It is just After Effects that flickers. Explorer also begins to go unresponsive. Here is the information copied from the GPU Information window. I updated my GPU drivers that day.
Fast Draft: Available Texture Memory: 1186.00 MB Ray-tracing: CPU
(GPU not available - incompatible device or display driver)
Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation Device: GeForce GTX 780/PCIe/SSE2 Version: 2.1.2 Total Memory: 2.92 GB Shader Model: 4.0 or later
Driver Version: - Devices: - Current Usable Memory: - Maximum Usable Memory: -
So, did it work fine before the day it started flickering?
The flickering was happening before I updated the drivers as well. I built this computer in June, and the problem has been consistent.
I wonder if this has to do with the issue-laden Windows 8.1 update. Microsoft pulled it from their download store because it was killing the Surface tablets.
The issue was happening far before I upgraded to 8.1.
Darn. It was worth a shot.
Am I reading your specs correctly in that you have two video cards? What happens if you only use one? I mean, try removing or disabling one of the cards, rebooting, and see if that makes a difference.
Did you ever find a solution to this? I'm having the exact same problem. I thought it might be because windows and my apps are installed on an SSD while I often store AE project data on another internal HDD. Maybe read/write lag is causing after effects to stutter?
Same problem here. It's not continuous, and I can finish my work. But annoying none the less.
I have this issue win 7 cc2014 and cs6 any luck?
