Has anyone has issues opening older projects in AE2021, whenever I try and open 2020 projects or earlier I get the spinning beachball, not sure whether it's software or a hardware issue. Running an Imac 4GHZ Quad i7 with 32 GB Ram, MacOS Big Sur. Never had issues like this before, just since upgrading to AE 2021.
Does it happen to all the projects that were created in the 2020 or older versions? What are your system specifications (CPU, GPU, RAM, OS)? Also, what happens if you try to import your projects into a new one instead of opening them?
Sorry for the delay in responding. The issue has occurred on 2020 projects and older 2019/18. I've tried to import them but the same spinning beach ball occurs. The projects open fine on my Mac Book Pro! Just the iMac is giving me the problem. I've attached the specifications of the iMac...
Thanks for sharing the details. We discussed this issue with the After Effects team. They wanted to take a look at a project you're having this issue with. Would you mind sharing it? If you can't share it publically, feel free to DM me a download link.
