Hi, so I was using after effects on mac. And it's a brand new computer, but my preview is in slowmotion and when I render its fine and in the speed that I need it to be. I tried everyting possible to fix it but nothing works. Also when I click play in the preview it takes forever to start playing. My resolution is in quarter. I even closed all my other applications that were working, and that didn't work either. I also went up in preferences and emptied my disk cache. Can anyone help me?

I would guess the cause is related to the disk speed although I am not sure abou the resolution of the project you have set. You set another additional fast SSD for cache if you have one.

What you mention is after having done for preload in RAM? Remember that After Effects first make a preload on RAM (green line) and then you will be able to see your animation without delays. To make this, simply press the space bar and wait enough, it is a process that can take a bit.
