I'm having the same issue. Thanks, Peru Bob, but that is an older thread. I'm using the latest version of AE 126.96.36.199. Mac Pro 5.1 24GB of RAM, 6 core 3.33ghz. I'm using Element 3D. but even with those effects turned off, still getting this and the AE needs 2 or more frames error. Going back to 2014.
