Hi, no, the problem persists. I've been waiting for an official update of the program with a solution to the problem, meanwhile I have been working with this problem. But I do not know because I have the feeling it might be a problem with the Nvidia drivers, I did the test uninstall them and the problem disappears. Obviously I can not work with the uninstalled drivers because my computer would not work.
PS: I have updated drivers
I just updated to CC 2018 and the problem still persists.
Do you have the latest Windows update?
Of course, I'm using the version fall creators update and the problem still persists, even create a new user account to delete previous records, actulice the drivers and the inconvenience still continues. I leave new video where the 2018 version is seen.
The truth is that this is frustrating. The lag is incredible to write
I'm having the same issue, with similar specs of computer.
Windows 10, Creators update, 64 bit
The lag is so bad the program is unusable... What's the situation here? Is there a fix for this, Adobe?
I got the same problem too. I had to go back to CC2015. I'm on a 5K iMac 2017 with 40GB RAM, Radeon Pro 580 8192 MB. The Timeline Preview was also laggy and stuttered.
I've spend quite some time on this issue, which seemed unsolveable.... but - i finally fixed it (atleast for me)
%appdata% --> Adobe --> Rename "After Effects" folder to "After Effects.old" - App must be closed while doing so. Opening a new AE instance should create a new folder. After this i chose "standard" workspace instead of default --- BOOM! Problem solved. Dont know why, dont know what --> but problem got solved.
The supporter from Adobe told me it was because the workspace profile seem to remember the user preferences. Creating a new folder removes all preferences, and changing workspace profile removes all preferences and remove the corrupted ones aswell.
Hope this helps - atleast worth a try
I am using an iMac, so there's no "AppData" folder, but I tried Library/Preferences/After Effects in Mac OS (that's where workspaces are stored) but it does not work for me. I still could not select text easily and sometimes AE crashes while I was selecting text.
UPDATE Dec 25, 2017: I just found out: NOT only AE CC2018 has this problem but AE CC2015 got that too. In CC2015 it's not as bad as CC2018. I think it might be the OS. I am using Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6. My other iMac which is on Mac OS Mavericks 10.9.5 does not have the same problem.
