I hope everyone's having a great start to their week!
So, in short, I've been haven a recent problem with After Effects. It would happen here and there on AE 2022, but it is now becoming frequent with AE 2023. I keep running into a problem with After Effects, on both 2D and 3D projects, where the Active Camera (for 3D) and/or the Preview window won't update with the timeline. It won't even try to render when I skip around on the timeline, and if I try to preview the clip it will just stay static.
I've tried the standard troubleshooting methods, all except fully uninstalling AE 2023 and reinstalling it. I even tried duplicating the comp, creating a new comp and copying assets over, and more - since that's been my workaround thusfar for the past few days. When I tried copying the assets over to a new comp, everything was working great, and then I nudged the timeline and everything froze up on the Preview winodw once more.
One of two things is happening:
Either the preview stays stuck on a specific frame OR the preview just disappears and I'm looking at a blank window.
Here are my specs:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-10885H CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti
32.0 GB (31.8 GB usable)
Windows 10 Pro (x64)
Any tips or workarounds I can use? Is this a bug or glitch that anyone has experience with?
Anything is much appreciated!
