Could you be a bit more specific?
How does CC 2014 perform for you?
What are you doing in CC 2015 that is slow?
Is it the interface? The rendering? The previewing? etc.
Also, things like computer specs, OS, etc. might be helpful.
Without more info, all I can say is that I saw one person I saw on the forums that had a general sluggishness and they fixed it by turning off wi-fi on their machine. That's not a good solution, but it might be a temporary fix for you and it would be a useful troubleshooting step.
Yes, with CC 2014 it is preforming better. Most noticeably is every time I move the timeline marker to any new frame. It seems to take longer to finally finish previewing it in 2015 than it has in 2014.
So what happens in 2015 is - is that I constantly have to wait for single frames to complete their preview. Even when there is no effect added or any extra layers on top. Just the footage, by itself.
When I do begin to stack effects or layers it becomes even more sluggish. To a point where I even waited over 20 minutes for a single Roto-brush frame to preview.
A second problem is how the interface is lagging. If I click and drag anything around, the moment I release the mouse button doesn't register on the spot, it lags for a second. Making things move around unintentionally. Another problem I don't have with 2014.
Here are my specs:
Windows 7 pro 64 bit. 24 GB RAM, i7 980x, Geforce Nvidia 660 Ti. I am working on a Raid 0 HDD setup.
Thank you for the help.
That was pretty clear feedback... AE 2015 is Beta software at best. Reinstall the buggy but less so 2014. In future I would use your own judgement when upgrading. Never listen to what Adobe tell you a release can do, they are essentially using paying customers as testers.
You're right, that's why I have both versions. Though, I believe to help getting 2015 up and running, I need to first figure out what's wrong, so working with 2015 when I can afford the extra time, may only benefit us all in the long run - by hunting down those bugs.
If you can afford the time... Adobe's job really... That's what you pay them for!
Again, you are right. However, 2014 is still great, so I'm not mad about the abysmal 2015. It's not like I can't work.
If 2015 doesn't get fixed, I can always stay with 2014. If it gets outdated, there are plenty of alternatives in the market.
Your on Windows lucky, we are on macs and 2014 is abysmal on that too! Great choice to have to make between bad and really really bad!
We are looking at switching to Resolve and Fusion towards the end of the year.
Eventually, you have to do what works best for you and it's great that the market is only growing bigger and is more affordable and available to everyone. Personally, I have been looking at Resolve as well, though I still find Adobe products to support everything I need in the best of ways.
It doesn't matter what tool you use as long as it does the things you need it to do. If Adobe isn't working for you, then there is plenty of choice out there. If they don't want to lose you and many others, as a costumer, then I sure hope they are making it clear enough to angry costumers that they are hard at work to resolve their issues and supply them with the best product they can.
Adobe was tailing behind the big-shots for many years and they worked hard to create and surpass, in many ways, other companies that "ruled" the industry. I think they earned that and I hope they don't begin to slack and drop the ball as seen on many industry-leading products.
Yep you are totally right... Unfortunately for us I don't think AE is a big deal to Adobe, hence the under investment and series of missed steps.
I don't expect much from AE, but not being able to import, playback or render is a pretty poor show!
