Hi, i click on the play button for the ram preview but it doesn't play and it doesn't render either.
Here a screenshot.
Have you tried restarting your computer?
Yes i did. I also tried to preview different projects but none of them work either.
What is your PC/Mac Specifications ?!
What do you use to make RAM Preview?!
these are my macs specs. Not really sure what you mean with the second question... i use the play button? I've used after effects before and i just click that button and it used to just preview.
So, even a brand new project with just a shape layer with the position animated won't preview?
Can we see a screenshot with your whole preview panel showing?
Also, can you try pressing the spacebar to start a preview?
Yes, i made a brand new project and put a minimal animation but it still won't preview anything. Spacebar doesn't start it either.
Click on the eyeball. It should be blue too.
it wont work even if i press the eyeball wont work
I have been having this issue as well, and I found a bizarre reason why it was happening in my case. I recently changed my audio hardware to a pair of bluetooth headphones. Switching it back to "speakers" eliminated the issue. Worth a shot to try that, anyway.
Oh my God. This fixed it. I've had this issue intermittently, on several different computers, for years. Thank you!
(On a side note, Adobe, why on Earth would something like changing the audio hardware setting fix this.)
SAME HERE! Thank you!
THANK YOU!!! This solved my issue also!!
This worked for me as well. Thank you!
Dude thanks a lot! I would have thrown my macbook out of the window before i found this on my own
OMG! Thank you for posting this, I thought I was going mad. ADOBE, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!
Thought I was going insane, this also solved it for me. Thank you Patrick!
Duuude.. the number of times I've restarted Ae when nothing will RAM preview, even after clearing cache... it's been my dang AirPods all along! THANKYOU!!
is it weird that this isn't working for me right now? I have a timeline that won't play or render, and changing the Audio Hardware has done nothing
Same here -_-
Oh my God, this is a really bizarre fix!
It worked immediately for me and I don't know why this is the case. Thank you!
This fixed my problem as well. I wasn't using bluetooth audio outputs though, just a diffferent wired output. Switching back to built-in speakers fixed the RAM preview. This is such a sloppy bug.
For God's sakes, Adobe!! Fix this! So frustrating!
Weird thing is a have a similar project open in Premiere Pro, and the playback is just find with my AKG headphones but AE stopped playing. Can't beleive I paid for this mess.
