    How to fix a timeline crash in AE?

    bryang62335704

      Hey guys,

       

      I'm trying a new technique in After Effects and it involves using the brush tool... a LOT. I'm doing a frame by frame animation on top of a video and each frame clocks about 30-40 strokes. As a result, my video layer has thousands of brush strokes on it. This isn't necessarily a problem, but I think the fact that there are so many strokes is causing the timeline to crash. Whenever I get down to stroke 2700, the scroll stops working, goes completely white and doesn't function properly until the program is closed and reopened. The rest of the After Effects still works, which is super strange to me.

       

      If you guys have any have insight, recommendations or ANYTHING to fix this problem, I'd really appreciate it. I'm sure I'm not doing this process in the most efficient way as well, so please let me know if you have any suggestions
