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?
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.
