Updated and in general very happy with the new render engine. Getting used to controlling it. One serious issue for me. I mark my music by tapping the asterisk (num pad) while auditioning the soundtrack. With the new renderer, the music drops out when I tap. By the time it comes back Ive already missed a bunch of frames to mark. Is this a system (me) or systemic (CC 2015) problem?
[Mac Pro. Tons of RAM and Resources using Yosemite].
Also the time marker line disappears every once and a while and won't show up in the comp until I re boot. Not serious but annoying.
If others are having this issue chime in for a bug fix
This is a known bug in After Effects CC 2015 (13.5). See "audio doesn’t play at the beginning of a preview and/or drops out during interaction" here:
Actually music is playing from the beginning for me (or better) unlike 2014.
Unchecking Mute Audio in Preview Preferences works (sort of but passable).
I like working with the new rendering engine for the most part and looking forward to the update fixes.
