After Effects 2021 (18.2.0) - Hangs since updating macOS to Big Sur

Hi everyone,

 

Not sure whats going here. I was using AFX 2021 for a while now without any issues in macOS Catalina - it was working perfectly. However last week I decided to update the OS to Big Sur and that changed everything...

 

I'm now plagued by intermittent hangs constantly while doing anything really — if I select a layer; open a menu; pick a colour; change the composition viewer zoom; etc etc. — after effects will become unresponsive anywhere between 1 and 6 seconds. 

 

I've tried uninstalling, and doing a clean install without any old preferences, extentions, scripts or plug-ins but this didn't help at all, so my only solution was to roll-back to AFX 2020. 

 

Has anyone else experienced anything similar and if so, were you able to fix it?

 

Thanks,

I should add that all other 2021 Adobe apps I use (PS, Bridge, Illustrator) aren't affected by the same issue so far and the hang is only within After Effects, all other app running and the system is unaffected.
