After Effects continuously stops auto saving progress, won't manually save either

I’m on a MacBook Pro 2023

Apple m3 pro chip

18 gbs RAM (… the minimum rec)

1 tb SSD 

Sonoma 14.5

 

Basically… I will be working along, auto save will periodically pop up, and then sometimes I’ll see that there hasn’t actually been a save in hours. Other times application memory warning will pop up at almost 110 gbs and the app will stop responding. I close out, clear cache, mess with settings, uninstall, reinstall, nothing seems to solve this frustrating problem. I lost a whole day of progress today, even when I swore it saved earlier. The auto-save folder will say the time of the most recent save, but when I open it there is no save file with a corresponding time of save. It’s just so bizarre I can’t seem to find much on forums about this. I'm not doing anything that i thought was too intensive, besides basic layer compositing.

That's not ideal. What's the file size of the project file? There is a know issue where if the project file size gets too big, After Effects is not able to save the project file. In my testing it was 1.63 GB. Can you check if that's the case? If not, where are you saving your project? Is it a external or a shared drive? Or in internal storage?

Let us know.

 

Thanks,
Nishu
