    Major AE CC Issue - Interface Slow

    brandonb96942845 Level 1

      So I figured out today how to get a vector file to become a 3D object using the AE auto trace function.  It's a neat feature that solves a lot of problems for me...but unfortunately it's created a brand new one.

       

      In short, the interface is so slow when I'm using the converted object (with bevel and extrusion enabled) that it's not useable.  I find myself waiting literally five to ten minutes at a time for the interface to start responding if I so much as click the layer to select it, and all the while AE stops responding.  It's a gamble every time it locks up as to whether it's then going to unlock.  I've reduced the Fast Preview and Resolution settings to their minimums, to no avail.

       

      I know these two shape layers have a lot of paths and groups, so I'm sure that's got something to do with it.  Still, there's got to be something I can do to speed up the interface--anyone?
