I was following a tutorial on making 3D Extrusion text for AE and to make things more interesting I wanted to do some camera panning and cutting, but every single time I try (I've tried doing it over with new project files from scratch three times already), the program simply stops responding and I can't even get the camera layer deleted again. I suppose it might be because my computer is too weak to handle it but I wanted to ask in the case that I might be wrong.
I'm on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 128 Gb. running a poor old Intel HD 520 and Intel i5 2.4 Ghz.
So yeah, if that's what's causing it I guess I'll have to consider building a desktop machine, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this might be something I could fix?
Cheers and thanks for your time!
Creating a complex project and running after effects on Machines with Low system resources causes alot of unexpected errors and slow down.
Upgrading to a new desktop computer will make a Huge difference
Here are some tips that could help.
Free up Ram before you add a camera :
edit -> purge -> All memory.
reset after effects setting file:
hold down ctrl + alt + shift and right click on after effects icon and click Open.
Mohammad, thank you so much for this tip!
I did not expect it to work, but the project went on and is now rendering thanks to the purge. I will keep this in mind for future frustrations, but as you mention I might get further by building a new PC instead.. >.>'
Thanks for the quick reply, it saved my day!
