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, 1920x1080 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).

It's definitely still an issue. I have tried every suggested fix to this. the only thing that fixes it is relaunching the program. I have found that it is especially likely when switching between AE and Premiere with dynamic linked comps.

I'm also having the same probem at the moment. For some reason it dissapears after a few minutes and only comes back after a restart of AE. I will try to find out what causes this problem.

Just reopening the project also works for me. So I just press the little house icon in the top left of the screen and then reopen the project and I can see the red line again.

Problem still persists in 2023, going into 2024.

 

I press play, video plays, but there is NO red line. Furthermore "Toggle Mask and Shape Path Visibility" is also disabled when I hit play and does NOT become re-enabled until I move the blue line manually.

I still also have this problem, in the latest public and beta releases of AE. Also, once AE gets into this confused state, Page Up/Down, Home and End have no effect. The only way to update the view is to drag the CTI. Quitting and relaunching AE fixes the issue - for a while, then it will nearly always return after a while of use. The contents/effect/layers etc. of the current comp makes no difference.

Oh yes - and I regularly find myself turning mask and shape visibilty back on after it mysteriously turns itself off.

@tillp35050168 Are you using linked comps with Premiere Pro? I find that the problem only appears when PPro is open. I've also reported the bug here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-beta-bugs/the-same-old-non-moving-cti-and-worse-is-back...

You'd hope that Adobe might actually take a look at this - it's been around for years now, since the very early days of linked comps, and makes AE completely unusable when it happens.

You could try changing the GPU acceleration in the menu File / Project Settings... / Video Rendering and Effects

@Byron Cortez The problem exists regardless of GPU/CPU acceleration - it seems to be an issue related to linked PPro comps.
