The laptop has an INTEL HD GRAPHICS 4000 ... just in case. I can't find any Nvidia on it...
A more powerful processor and more RAM might help.
Is the SSD your only hard drive?
What video card do you have?
If you don't use Ray Tracing, don't worry about the message.
SSD is my only Hard Drive
I have Intel HD Graphics 4000 (I assume this is the video card... not sure)
The composition I am working on is very basic and still very slow, even when previewing the render... it is a 13 sec footage...
Do you think it might be a setting that I have to set, or disable?
Thanks for the help...
Ok, so my solution to this problem was this:
I updated the drivers for my Intel HD Graphics 4000 and it worked.
Now everything is smooth, fast and nice...
Thank you for sharing what worked!
Man, you are not going to believe it… it was something completely different dude…
So after I thought I had it figured out, turns out I go back and keep working and the preview is frozen.
So Im like, OMG! Im sick of it…
Kept looking for answers and nothing, until I decided to just shut down and go do something else and forget about it.
Today when I wake up, I come back to try to find something on Youtube, before I do that, I start AE…
Preview the video from yesterdays project… and It WORKS!
Well… I have problems with my vision, so I usually work with a High Contrast Theme on Windows.
Every background is black and letters are white.
But for some reason, I needed to view something and I had to change the theme to a regular theme.
For my surprise, when I started AE this morning, the theme I was using was a regular theme, and since the options in the ae menu where kind of bright, I change the theme to High Contrast, and guess what? The preview stopped working…
So this was the deal… high contrast theme affects preview in ae. Went back to windows theme, and bam… working fine.
So I would have never figured this out… and there is nothing online that points to this issue…
Can you believe that?
Try it for yourself…
THIS IS WORTH A MILLION BUCKS!
Thanks for coming back to let us know the real issue!
