    Stuttering preview on 5K Imac under El Capitan 10.11.1 and AE 13.6


      iMac 5K Retina with El Capitan 10.11.1. Latest version of After Effects 13.6. Regardless of how simple the comp is, it will not playback or preview without stuttering, unless I hide the timeline. Hitting the tilde ~ key allows me to solo out the main window and the preview works. But the update designed to fix the terribly performing preview system recently introduced did not fix the problem.


      Preview has been told to "cache before playback".


      No second monitor attached, no mercury transit enabled. Plenty of RAM and very simple comps. I read on these forums a while back where an adobe tech said the problem stems from the UI taking up too many resources during the preview. Makes sense. But sure wish someone at adobe was listening and working on a solution.
