    lag - seriously bad - how can i reduce

    adzatpew

      im using 13.5.1.48

       

      most operations are fast, but moving a pivot point (pan behind tool) or sliding layers in the timeline, there is enormous lag and when i let go of the mouse and move it the layer or pivot adopt this mose, even though i have released the mouse

       

      so i am having to manipulate (slowly) the content, then pause for a second

       

      this is really slowing me down

       

      how can i improve performance of this?

          Are your elements located on a fast/separate hard-drive? How big (dimensionally & size) and what type of files are they? Do you have any adjustment layers in your comp with effects on or any heavy processing effects on the elements themselves (like any blurs for example)?

            i have 4 physical HDs

             

            the work is stored on a different drive to the install

             

            the content is just a text layer.....and nothing else

             

            it doesnt matter if i have a single solid or a comp full of stuff, the lag is exactly the same...it doesnt seem to be resource dependent ....but rather a fundamental flaw in the performance of AE

              Do you have a chock full font library? I've read that having too many fonts installed can cause issues....

                i have installed maybe 40 fonts on top of the basic opsys ones

                 

                but the issue is not limited to text layers.....it is any layers

                  there is a chance you have a defective font... test and see what happens if you remove all of the ones you installed (saving them first!), try AE on the basic opsys ones, if it's solved then you'll know (just not which font!)

                    I say that because to me it sounds like AE is struggling to establish a link to something, like a network or damaged file....

                      if i create a brand new project....the layers solids and text all work smoothly.....so it must be something inherently wrong with my current project

                       

                      i am currently on save iteration 1056....would that affect it?

                       

                      it contains hundreds of comps...thousands of layers.....although each individual comp only contains a dozen or so layers

                       

                      so even if i create a brand new comp in this project, everything lags

                       

                      so i guess to refine the problem....given this project is composed of lots of shots and i am reluctant to break it down into smaller chunks.....is there a an inherent issue with after effects not liking large projects?

                        Not really no, AE doesn't usually freak with large project files, just how you use certain effects is the main culprit. Create a report and copy/paste here all the effects and lets see...

                          It's not a fan of most audio formats tbh, wavs are usually safe tho, and try and keep all your video the same format/codec. Does your footage and comp fps settings match too? Are you timewarping or using motion-pixel blurring?

                            1. how do i create a report?

                             

                            2. comps with just a single solid and no audio have the same issue....literally nothing in the comp, just a single solid....dragging the pivot or the layer on the timeline is laggy.....

                              File > Dependencies > Collect Files - then tick the Report Only box and save....

                                you can also scan through all your elements in case one is accidentally on the network or crappy HD or something....

                                      Ugh, I can't see much in there that's obvious, but I've had much larger projects than that before so I don't think its that. Mesh Warp could be a culprit or Puppet if you have a large amount of triangles per layer, that may do it.

                                        Is it easy to shut them off and check?

                                          If you have any pre-comp work you're happy with and unlikely to change, you could render them out as a sequence, import back in and dump in the same comp, then shut off the original layers. This will speed things up as AE isn't having to constantly render the effects, which may be the source of your issues

                                            i just tried to find all instances of puppet and meshwarp....from what i can tell, it is not used anywhere....i only applied it to a couple of layers in one comp which is no longer used....so i deleted that layer, saved and did a new log.....but they are still listed

                                             

                                            but those effects are not used in any of the comps that i can see...they consist of mainly shape layers...some psds

                                                just did an old 3ds max trick....imported the entire afx project into a new project and there was a huge improvement in performance.....but it is still not as good and a completely clean project

                                                  Although this is a hindsight point to make, in future, as soon as you notice a drop in performance, go back through your history and try and correlate what could have caused it. This has happened to me in the past and if you don't nip it asap it can be (and is for you now!) a nightmare...

                                                      it doesnt work entirely

                                                       

                                                      however...i just did a quick test.....

                                                       

                                                      empty project has great performance

                                                      empty project with imported massive project, slightly less performance

                                                      exact same project with 22 comp tabs and terrible performance

                                                       

                                                      so it would seem that afx is struggling in general with a big project...that sucks

                                                        as for your hindsight comment....this has not been a sudden drop in performance....it has been gradual over the past 2 weeks

                                                                There are some issues with CC 2015 (After Effects version 13.5.1).

                                                                I am having the same issues an others since the latest update, another annoying bug I am experiencing is when I Ctrl + z. it doesn't undo my ram preview unless I modify something else.

                                                                Let's hope the AE peeps get these issues solved soon. my workflow is getting affected by this I must admit.
