    No live update while scrubbing through image sequences (Live Update enabled)

      As the title states, my comp window no longer updates as I scrub through the timeline even though Live Update is turned on. This happens only on image sequences. I can scrub through a video and it will update.


      The only way for me to scrub through live is to first cache the sequence.  This used to not be the case before where I could scrub through image sequences without needing to cache.


      Changing the quality from Full to Quarter doesn't make any difference, neither does switching to Fast Draft or Adaptive Resolution.


      The current frame just remains frozen until I release the cursor at the new timeline location, at which point, the picture will update.

      The frames are on an internal, SATA drive.


      Edit: this seems to be the same issue as described here:
