CS3? G5? Surely something up with AE not properly running in PPC mode, but as to what may be causing this, i have no clue. Are you using any third-party plugins? Composotion preview via video hardware?
I haven't any plug-ins installed. The system I'm running this on is used ONLY for photoshop, AE and FCP. All of the updates are installed religiiously. I ran utilities on my computer recently and all seems well.
I checked my ram and disk cache and it is set at 150%. When I work, the render engine reports I'm using 35% of 1.2 Gb. I had an AE person look at it and she said she can't see what might be causing the problem. With this same system, and AE 7, I created three-d boxes, played with particle world, multitudes of cameras and lights... no problem.
Now, to work at 1/4 res, I wait about 5 minutes for the video screen to refresh every time I touch a camera position keyframe, or a light. Even moving the 7 mb file sideways takes a long time.
I installed AE CS3 from an Adobe sight download, instead of purchasing the discs. I can't find the dmg install file AN"ywheRE on my system. It was an upgrade, so the original AE program is still in there.
I can't go back to the previous version because I won't be able to open the current AE files. At this point, I'm looking at missing my deadline. There must be some explanation for this!
Right. Back to basics. Have you:
-- Trashed the prefs file?
-- Removed the OpenGL plug-in?
-- Tried a different project?
-- Tried different source footage?
-- Is Multiprocessing enabled? (Can't remember if this is even allowed on PPC.)
-- What type of source footage are you using?
-- What are your comp dimensions and frame rate?
-- What ormat are you rnedering to?
