What resolution and framerate are the puppets in? It's possible they're so big that AE/PR are choking. Like I talked to a guy yesterday who was using 600dpi assets! Yeah, that's going to chug.
Otherwise - whenever I'm doing dynamic link in AE, I always lower my preview settings for a lower resolution and some skipped frames to get smoother performance. Might help here too.
Thanks! That's given me some stuff to try with the next video. I really want to get dynamic link working as it would be so useful!
I'll report back before I hit the answer box if that's okay? Cheers for taking the time to offer suggestions!
When making changes in Ch and then switching back to AE/PPro, if you're standing at a time far from the start of the scene, it will be slow because it has to compute all the frames starting from the first frame. So for fastest response when switching back & forth, in AE/PPro view a frame near the start of the scene.
