Hey all -
I just updated to AE CC 188.8.131.52, and I'm still having the same problem. It's happened to me while updating things inside of precomps where the main comp wouldn't reflect the change unless I purged my memory & disk cache or switched to a different preview resolution (Full to half for example). Right now I'm having the issue with Paint. I'm painting inside of a layer and it's working ok until I undo a paint stroke and I see no change in preview. The paint stroke has been deleted, but I don't see a change reflected in preview unless I purge the memory & disk cache again. This is SUPER ANNOYING. Has anyone else had this problem or found a solution?
If it helps at all, I'm working on a late 2014 iMac running El Capitan 10.11.5
Sorry for this frustrating issue. I've definitely been there before, usually due to either low RAM amounts on my system, larger footage types or both.
We'd love to help. Can you give us a little more info to go on? Please let us know more so we can help you.
