    After Effects 2017 preview lagging in Windows

      It is not just a Mac issue as I am having the same problem on Windows 10. Seems to plague CC 2017( more than 2015.3, even though I have seen it less frequently in 2015.3.

      How does playback misbehave?

      I am not talking about playback, I'm not that ambitious, I would settle for a single frame.

      My comps are simple sequences with vignette shape layers and Hue/Sat adjustment layer. No particles or third party plug-ins. Pretty vanilla comps for After Effects.

      I can move the CTI down the timeline and there will no screen redraw for several minutes. Clearing the cache files does not alleviate. If I save the file, sometimes it will redraw soon after, not always.




      Boot drive is an SSD and cache drive is an SSD.
