Im animating a 1920 x 1080 px photoshop file with multiple layers, a few days ago everything was fine, i was animating in AE with the file. As of yesterday, every time i open/import the file into AE CC (latest update)
- it opens the project way slower than usual
- crashes at 90% or opens and then doesnt respond or responds at the slowest rate and then crashes
- VERY VERY slow preview even on quarter resolution when it does open
I also created a new composition and imported the file, it was still slow
I am using an external HD as a scratch disk for AE which has 90gb free, I have been using this for a while also and it has been fine. I changed the scratch disk location to the Internal to see if that was the case. I only have 12gb storage free so allocated 10gb, still slow.
Re made the file from scratch and also tried opening ae on a friends laptop and same issue......?
Set up info;
MacBook Pro Retina // 8GB Ram // Intel Iiris 1536 MB // 2.6 GHz i5 (LATEST UPDATE)
If you have only 12 GB free on your internal drive, you have more problems than just AE potentially on your horizon. A good rule of thumb is to keep about 20% of any hard drive free so the computer has some breathing room to work. But this is especially true on a drive where your Operating System resides...
