    Preview is slow and choppy in AE 2017.2

      Hi there,


      I swear AE didn't used to do this, but now my previews on the timeline are really slow and make the audio playback very choppy even with fast preview etc...


      I've got the following


      Intel Xeon E5-2630 v2 (Six Core HT, 2.6Ghz Turbo 15Mb)

      32GB RAM

      Nvidia Titan Black

      Windows 10 64bit


      So basically if I purge my work area then it looks like this...




      (ie no green line)


      straight after I did that screenshot it (for some reason) used RAM (ie the green line appeared slightly after the work area)




      then when I actually previewed the work area (Shift 0) it added green before and after the work area when in my Preview settings I specifically chose "Work Area" for the range).








      am I going insane or just missing something?


      Thanks in advance.
