Temporaitly, I am working on an M1 iMac (my previous setup is a 2017 iMac). No matter what I do, I can only get After Effects 2023 (version 23.3.0) to ram preview 5 frames on my M1 iMac (using OS Ventura 13.3.1).
Attemps to solve the issue (that did not work):
-Lowered the preview resolution to quarter.
-Lowered preview resulution to render every 10 pixels. -Lowered preview resolution to render every 99 pixels. -Changed resolution of comp to 540 x 540 -Removed EVERYTHING from the comp except a solid color layer. -Imported my existing AE project into a new AE project.
-No third party plugins
-AE 2023 was freshly installed on machine
-Absolutely NO ISSUES have come up while working on my old iMac. The issues only occured the moment I started using the iMac M1.
It seems I am not the only one with this issue as I have seen many posts about this as well and many replies assuring users the problem has been fixed.
I downgraded to After Effects 2022 (Version 22.6.0) and the project will ram preview more than 5 frames! I can FINALLY continue working again!!!!
As I am only working on this M1 machine temporairly, I am considering my issue to be solved for me. My client isn't looking for me to endlessly troubleshoot this issue on their dime so I am moving on and getting back to work.
Good luck to everyone using the M1 iMac full time because AE 2023 just isn't working!
