I've been trying to preview in After Effects and it's stopping after 4 frames. I've seen this most problem most commonly diagnosed as a RAM issue when I search it online but I have plenty of RAM available and I've tried closing all other applications and am still getting the same result.
So far I've tried:
Moving the disk cache
Purging the disk cache
Changing resolution settings on preview
Toggling on/off cache before playback
Deleting and re-installing the application
And nothing has resolved it. Can anyone help?
Error or problem
Freeze or hang
Are you using the 22.5 version? Please share your system specifications (CPU, GPU, RAM, OS version). Also, how much RAM you have reserved in the After Effect Preferences > Memory & Performance. You can try decreasing the RAM reserved for the other apps.
Yes, I am using Version 22.5.0 (Build 53). My system is a 2020 Mac Mini running on an Apple M1 Chip with 16gb of RAM, currently operating on MacOS Big Sur version 11.2.3. I have 3 GB of RAM reserved for other applications which should be more than enough RAM. This error is happening no matter what I'm trying to preview, be it an animation, or literally a simple still frame.
