    Why does AE CC 2015 RAM Preview work fine on one computer and not on another?


      Hi All

      So I know this is hot topic at the moment, and maybe this has already been answered, but to be honest, I don't have time to go searching for the answer!

      Basically I can't work on the same project, on the same version of AE on different machines. Its a bit ridiculous!


      AE works fine on this machine:

      iMac 27' Late 2012

      3.4 GHz Intel Core i7

      16GB ram

      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1024 MB

      3TB Fusion Drive


      AE is unusable on this machine: (Awful ram preview, frame rate lags, audio crackles and jumps around)

      iMac Retina 27' Late 2014

      4 GHz Intel Core i7

      32GB ram

      AMD Radeon R9 M290X 2048 MB

      250GB SSD


      A the moment, when using the retina machine, Im caching my project onto the local SSD rather than using an external. Perhaps AE doesn't like this? maybe 250GB isn't big enough to keep it happy? Or theres a conflict with the graphics card? These are the only things I can think of. Any advise/insight would be much appreciated.
