This issue has been going on for months, maybe over a year. It happens both on Windows and MacOS.
Using shortcuts to open properties on photoshop layer freezes up AE for ~10-15 seconds.
It only happens when doing it 1st time. Consecutive use of shortcuts on the same layer does not freeze up AE. But then using the shortcuts on another psd layer freezes up again.
Test PSD file is <150mb, 1080p. Flattened to 3 layers and I still can't figure out why it keeps freezing up AE.
System info (but doesnt matter if it also happens on Macs):OS: Windows 10 Enterprise 10.0.18363
CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2920XRAM: 64GB
GPU: RTX 2070 Super
Drivers: 442.92 Studio drivers
I'm unable to access the file as it asks for a permission.
Have you tried resetting photoshop and After effects preferences settings?

I got in touch with an agent and he gave me some tips what to try (updating drivers and repairing C++ redistributables) so will see if that helps
I finally have found a solution! The issue is the raw metadata into the psd files, these psd from mac coming with a huge metadata. The solution is to clean the metadata, I recommend a software "ExifCleaner", it is free and really effective. Cheers!
