Anyone else having trouble with the more recent 2017 update causing after effects to move at a snails pace to make the AME file? I mean like 4+ minutes to make the file. My main .aep is 33 MB but thats because there are a lot of vecotors and imported illustrator files. there is only one photo texture used and thats only 700 kbs.
We can't tell. We know nothing about the things you're DOING in your project, which is the primary determination of the rendering taking place in AE.
Sorry for the trouble. Are you still having issues with your exporting performance? Please let us know.
