After Effects Stop Responding on File Importing. I am on the latest updated version.
Whenever I drag and drop a file into after effects it freezes however if I go right click>import>file and import the same file that way it import the file instantly.
Just drag and drop freezes. How can I correct this issue.
This happens on any type of file, even images, jpg, png, doesnt matter if I drag and drop it after effects freezes.

Reboot, re-launch and try again. If you still have problems make sure your version of AE is up to date. If it is, uninstall and re-install AE using the Creative Cloud app. Your AMD CPU may be a problem. I've seen several posts by folks with AMD processors and After Effects. This is just one of them: AE on Ryzen 1700 not performing/rendering even close to expected ...
Let us know if you have any success.
Thanks for your suggestion, I tried everything you suggest but this issue still rises. as far as amd is concerned I have no other issue with after effects at all so idk hope it isnt a amd problem, the issue is not a deal breaker since I can always go the right click>import mode and that works flawlessly just the drag and drop is just so much more convenient for my workflow.
I will be doing a fresh install here in a few days, so hopefully that clears up the issues.
does anyone have any help? I uploaded the task manage view of what is crashing etc.
Just wanted to say even in 2020 this exact issue still exists.
32 core threadripper 128gb ram. Latest version of after effects. Windows 10 will all the latest updates.
Nothing like losing a couple of minutes work every time you forget this bug exists and AE just hangs for no reason. 😞

We're here to help.
same issue, i do work with psd file to after effect, i use ryzen 7 6800h, rtx 3060 mobile gpu, 16 gb ram ddr5, windows 11
Same is happening to me. It seems I can import files through Bridge, but not drag and drop from file manager or through File>Import.
I spoke with the tech support and they reinstalled AE, used the clean up tool, rebooted my computer, renamed the AE file and reopened AE. The only thing that worked was creating a new Admin account on the OS. They said it might be something to do with the OS and I would like to avoid a clean reinstall if possible.
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: Nvidia RTX 2060

still happening in july almost august 2022..
After Effects 2024 still is an issue...
I cannot import or drop the pds file, it still freeze, I am so frustrated with AE, please fix it!
The only way around this that works for me is to open the file in bridge and place it in AE, save project re-open.
When you double click the image file, what application is launched? If one of Adobe products is not launched, you change the property of the file to make sure Photoshop or other Adobe products are used to open the file.
Hi, for everyone struggling with the .psd import, here is a workaround:
Import the .psd as footage. Then put it in new composition, then right click on the file in the compo:
Create - Convert to Layered Comp
Works like a charm, I hope this helps:)
I found. This problem appears when there are a lot of layers in psd. I merged some layers and it is ok now. Try this
