The AE preference for "Hardware Accelerate Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels" makes my deep compositions workable - for a limited time, and then simple selection tasks slow down substantially, as if I had turned this checkbox off. What can I upgrade to have more "fast time" with After Effects? Thanks for any insight into how to make my system work. Also, this may be my last Mac.... Is anyone out there able to run hundreds or thousands of layers in After Effects on a PC without having simple select tasks slow down?
• simple selection task = "select all" in a single open composition with 10 layers or with 400 layers, although only in a project which contains deep compositions.
• This slowdown exhibits with or without caps lock enabled
• This slowdown exhibits before and after purge all
