    lagging when preview and playing preview

    fiveseven89

      helo... im new to AE, i used it few times. I just notice some people when they used AE then tries to play the curent project it seems they are not lagging. in my case when I preview or play my current project or composition its lagging and very slow. Could someone suggest how to make it smooth?

          Please be more specific. What exactly are you doing? Are you correctly creating RAM previews? If so, on what system are you working? Audio hardware? Graphics card? Specific video ccapture card? What footages do you use? What are your composition settings? Do you use any effects? Do you use the disk cache? There could be a million reasons for this, so more info is really required.

              Have you tried this with otehr files or only with DV-encoded AVIs such as the one in teh picture? This could be something specific in the CoDec handling on Windows 7 (as it uses a new CoDec format entirely). I suspect the solution is not in AE, but rather in Windows Media Player's settings or your system settings where you would have to enable a legacy option somewhere, but since I haven't upgraded to W7 yet, I can't be more specific. I would have a look around the web on a more generic level and see, if something about this is known on other forums.
