I'm working in after effects 2021 and my composition isn't showing up? It is just blank no matter what I click on and I'm not sure how to fix it. I know there were a lot of issues with this in 2018, but none of those solutions have helped me.

Here's a picture of my screen. It's almost like it's not loading because if I click on new composition or new composition from footage it doesn't do anything.

Hi Sarbre,

 

Sorry for your issue. Please share the following details:

  • What are your system specifications (CPU, GPU, RAM, OS)?
  • Is your GPU driver updated?
  • What happens if you go to File > Project Settings and change the renderer to "Mercury Softwere Only"?

Let us know, we're here to help.

 

Thanks,
