After Effects is really slow

Hey!

 

I'm pretty sure there are a lot of threads like this, or maybe I'm just alone with this. For some reason, After Effects just runs terribly, although I would say I got a pretty good machine. I'm working with a Ryzen 9 5900x an RTX 2070 Super and 32gbs of 3200Mhz. I use a lot of the Sapphire plugins but basically, if I put something like S_Shake or anything else that takes a bit more of processing power everything just tanks and I have to put my Playback to Third to even get a somewhat smooth experience. I've tried a few settings I found online, but nothing really fixes it. Is there something I'm missing, or is it just normal that AE runs like this, and I just have to live with a Mosaic filter as a Preview?

Thank you for taking the time to answer!

I think some effects can slow down AE quite a bit and there are various tricks you can do, such as solo-ing layers.  The truth is though that AE is not designed to playback video like an editor.  It has to compile each frame into the computer's RAM.  I made a video explaining it:
