I am experiencing an issue where no matter how many times I play back my timeline, it doesn't play smoothly - even though the RAM preview bar is green. I've purged all memory and cache, restarted AE and the computer and this problem pops up every now and again. I am running CC 2022 and have 700GB of SSD space allocated to the cache while keeping AE and project files on 2 separate other drives.

 

This didn't seem to be an issue for me in CC 2020.

Not a solution, but for further investigations, open the info panel. There you can see clearly if AE is caching or previewing alongside of the fps.

wish they'd fix or even aknowledge this issue -- add your voice if you fancy, cheers
