Hmmmm I was GOING to say the cause was the fact that sadly, the Radeon Pro 460 isn't technically listed as one of the officially supported (i.e. tested) GPUs for After Effects. BUT I have the 2016 touchbar MBP as well with the 460 and 4GB of memory and I just tried out a shape layer and dragging it around and it worked fine, no lag with the mouse or shape. I also toggled between the three Renderer modes as well to test that scenario. All three worked. There must be another variable.
Can you think of any other switches you have on that COULD impact/alter playback? Motion blur? Quality and sampling switch? Frame blending? 3d Layer? Anything else you've altered about the Comp settings? Even if we determine what it is, it's STILL an annoying issue you're having, I just want to find the variable!
Hi Jason. Thanks for testing this out. The issue is extremely noticeable when I'm Rigging layers imported from illustrator. However, when I RAM preview them, the animations are smooth. However, dragging controllers and stuff causes so much lag. It's quite noticeable especially when I make comparisons to other users movements on youtube.
For Rigging, I have the DuikIK script running.
If I were to click on any icon on my dock and drag it around, the icon would follow my cursor and never once have I seen the cursor move ahead of the icon to later have the icon follow it. In After Effects though, the lag is noticeable. Is the same for you? I could be paranoid here because of my experience with Logic Pro X
Hmph, interesting. I mean, I only did a quick sample test with a shape layer. But it's interesting that you're experiencing this in two different apps. Almost definitely points to a GPU conflict. Might have to wait for another driver update via an OS update and hope for the best.... :/
I have a similar issue. Brand new Macbook Pro 2.9GHz intel core i7, 16 gig mem, Graphics 530, Sierra macOS. I transferred all my old stuff from my 2007 MacBook Pro, and I thought it may have created the problem.
Any time I open photoshop, I cannot use the mouse pad. I actually went back to my old Photoshop the was part of Adobe CS3. Seems to have issues with the onlline version only.
