Hi, I just want to know I recently shift to MacBook and I have Mac M1 Pro 2021. I used adobe premiere pro and it works perfectly either timeline or renders but today I work on video and use after Effects and that makes me shocked because after effect is very slow and the timeline takes so long to load.
I do change my render to CPU which is mac built-in but still very low, can someone please guide me what's wrong with that because I wasn't expected such performance.
Hi Awais Butt,
Welcome to the community.
Is it the After Effects interface or playback that's slow (could you share a screen recording)? What are the details of the footage you imported (frame rate, frame size, format/codec)? Also, does it happen in all the projects?
Let us know, we're here to help.
Well, it's playback, I mean when I click on render preview it's load slow but other actions are going well.
Also I just started project on new device so I will check more work soon but for testing I used to upload new project and it's also play slow then I let me render preview 1/2
Thanks for your support 🙂
Also, because you are using an Apple Silicon M1 Pro Mac, make sure you updated to the After Effects 22.3 update which came out yesterday. It’s the first Apple Silicon native release, so performance should be far superior to running the Intel version on an M1 Mac.
Ok, I will update soon and hopefully, it will fix 🙂
Thanks for the help
I am having similar issues on my 2014 M1 Pro. I have the 10-core model with 32GB RAM, and the performance is nearly unusable. Using AE v22.6, a 10-second fairly basic timeline that is taking over 2 hours to render (the same project on a colleague's PC takes ~5 minutes). Activity Monitor shows little use, and the battery is hardly draining. Editing text on a soloed layer within the comp has 2-5 second delays. Any acknowledgement or suggestions would be welcome.
I'm observing the same problem. Use a Macbook Pro 2021 M1 Pro with 32 GB RAM. Work with Adobe Character, Illustrator and After Effects, using Dynamic Link. Both playback and rendering take a very, very long time.
Edit: *2021 M1 Pro.
All of their Adobe apps run fast and responsive, Premiere has had no issues at all. The slow rendering issue seems to be only in AE.
True. Even Adobe Character runs smoothly. It's only AE, also when used without embedded Dynamic Link files from character. Does anyone have asolution for that issue?
I find After Effects runs very fast and normally for a while, then starts to slow down suddenly. I restart it and it goes back to being fast for a while. It's like the M1 allocates memory away from it and hobbles it... anyone else notice this pattern?
Yes. This is exactly what is happening. It starts very fast renders are like a breeze in the beginneing then suddenly it goes dead in terms of speedm i restart it again gets fast for sometime. Not able to figure out the prob/solution.
