    After Effects ignores cache before playback option

    petet89608999

      I recently moved one of my projects to a removable drive and moved it back once I didn't need to move it about (the same computer it came from). However ever since I've been running it off the external drive, previews have been acting up. The main issue, as the title says, is that it won't cache before playback, instead what happens is the preview will play from the last rendered point, even if that isn't where the playhead is. For example if say, 10 seconds of a 30fps comp have rendered and I want to preview the next 10 seconds and the playhead is at 0 seconds, it will jump to 10 seconds and play as it previews (not ideal). I have tried resetting preview options and tried a different shortcut key to start preview.

       

      Any feedback welcomed, thanks, Pete.
