My After Effects is working great, everything is fine until i start adding text. The moment i put text into a composition everything stops working, i can barely change the position of a piece of text without the enitre app crashing/lagging, let alone add an effect etc. Its extremely frustrating, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Same issue with a different font?
Sorry for your issue. What's the exact version of After Effects you're using. Does it happen with a particular font or any font you use? I remember there was a bug creating similar issues if SF Pro font was used in the project.
Let us know, we're here to help.
I'm using After Effects 2022, version 22.2.1. I recently tried uninstalling/re-installing to fix the issue, which didn't work, so the software is completely up to date. I just checked and that did happen to be the font i was using, i changed the font and it seems to have fixed the issue.
Glad to hear that you found the solution.
Do you mind sharing the name of the font? Is it an Adobe font or did you install it manually?
Let us know.
