Hi, I did a clean install of OS X El Capitan, and a fresh install of the latest AE 2014 and AE 2015.
The comp view update (frame rate navigation) is terrible on the new AE 13.6 (2015) compared to 13.2 (2014), and the problem doesn't seems to be with my mac configuration because 2014 is much better using exactly the same hardware and OS.
That means this new version is a great step back in basic performance.
I recorded a test for comparison using a very simple project:
You can notice that even with a single image layer we can't have a good view update.
This is a know issue? Will it be fixed? I'm stuck on 2014.
OS: OS X 10.11.2
Mac Pro (Early 2009)
CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5520 @ 2.27GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 OpenGL Engine
Today I installed 13.6.1 and frustration remains.
Toddy said to post bugs here, but I'm not getting any help. Any word about this?
This comp view lagging remains even with a GTX 980 4GB using web NVIDIA driver.
I assume this problem should be the same of this bug:
Mac OS X 10.11 introduced a change in how certain regions in application windows are refreshed, which caused After Effects to spend too much time redrawing the preview-time indicator (PTI) (...) There remain other bugs that can slow down real-time playback in some circumstances, on both Windows and Mac OS. We are working on a solution to these problems for the next release of After Effects
The update 13.7.2 didn't fix this video preview lag.
So we should stay on 2014 until 2016 release?
