hello, I have a problem with my CTI.

When I first opened my after effect, the red line CTI is doing fine, but after few minutes when I play preview the video & audio is playing but my CTI doesn't move.
Could anyone help me with this problem?

Ok but what are you making, what effects are you applying, what is the composition resolution, etc. After Effects read frame by frame to make a preview and it depends on various factors to play fluidly.

Looks like this bug is back, over a year later, on AE Beta 22.1.1x62.

 

I have a 30sec comp, all rendered (green bar all the way across), and it'll play back fine if I hit the spacebar, but the CTI does not move at all. I have my Preview settings set to: On (Spacebar) Stop: Move time to preview time. When I hit the spacebar again to stop playback, even though I'mm seeing the correct frame in the Comp Viewer, the CTI remains unmoved. If I then use Page Up/Down to move the CTI, the CTI moves, but the frame in the Comp Viewer remains static - ther is no longer any relation between the CTI and the displayed frame. Only if I drag the CTI does the image in the Comp Viewer update. I've seen this bug before, but I think it was fixed a few releases ago. If I quit and relaunch AE, the issue will go away for a while....but then come back.

 

Also, if I play back the comp (it has audio) from the first frame, sync is fine. If I start playback from anything other than the first frame of the comp, audio sync goes waaaay out. This loss of sync issue is not fixed by quitting and relaunching AE.

 

My Nvidia drivers are fully up to date. I'm, using a Windows 10 system, AMD 5950X, 128GB RAM, 24GB VRAM RTX3090 GPU.

Nope - it's back this afternoon. I have a really simple comp - one layer of text, with an opacity animator and two keyframes to have the text come on a character at a time. If I put the CTi at the start (it's a 13sec, 1920x10180 25fps, mute comp in an 8bpc project) and hit the spacebar, it plays back OK, but the CTI does not move and the red line does not appear at all. When I stop playback, the CTI does not move to the current time position, and pressing page up/page down now moves the CTI, but the comp viewer does not update. As per usual, the only way to get the comp viewer to update is to drag the CTI with the mouse.

Nope - no red line at all.

It doesn't always happen - not sure what triggers the problem, but if I relaunch AE, the problem goes away, and playback work OK with the red line moving properly - for a while.

Did you managed to solve this problem in the end? I'm having the same issue with all my projects in the most recent build as well.

I haven't noticed it being a problem recently - but maybe I've just been working on the "right" kind of projects (I've no idea what triggers the issue!).

I'm on version 22.4.0 (Build 1).
