thought this problem will be solved
this is not a common problem or a known issue with the updated versions of Ae releases. when did you first start experiencing this issue?
I have not experienced this on my Win7 systems in any of Ae's versions. please show some full screenshots so we can rule down some obvious things that could be related to your specific setup? also specify some basic hardware and software information about your system
1. make sure you are using 14.0.1 version
1. make sure your GPU is up to date
2. reset you preferences: Reset After Effects Preferences
Did Roei's response assist you?
I'm attaching a short screen recording showing an example of the problem:
This can occur in many different cases, but always happens after I type something (meaning - screen won't update if I just change a value by typing)
My GPU is updated, I have a new AE so the Preferences are clean.
Not sure what to do
this looks super annoying. reminds me of an old bug that was in CC 2015.3 when the initial release came out. can't be sure what to make of this.
I would try these steps:
1. Reset After Effects Preferences (yep, try again)
2. I see you are on windows so Close all of the Adobe processes from the Task Manager and go to the following locations:
- C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe Location
In all the locations, rename the 'Adobe' folders to 'OldAdobe' - this will force Ae to create new settings for everything. Launch Ae, accept the License Agreement and see if it works.
if this still does not work I would try a support agent via remote desktop to see where this is coming from: Contact Customer Care
It didn't help, and it even messed up my existing projects. Objects are all over the place, characters are completely dismantled now.
That's unfortunate, You can rename it back. I can only offer suggestions based on my experiance and common sense and there are no assurances of course. My next step would be to re-install. If everything is messed up, or not updating, I can't imagine how you could finish a project this way. you could use a previous version. I would contact costumer service and try to pin this down with a support agent.
This is a new version I've installed lately, and the problem exists from previous versions.
I will contact them, thank you
Let's hope you still have previous versions installed -- the fix may be easy if you did. You know the AE Cache? There's a cache for each previous version! You may have to purge the caches from those earlier versions to 1) get rid of persistent images and 2) free up room for the current-version cache.
The cache of these versions is already empty
