Old projects and projects mad on PC are running super slow and are unusable

Hi there,


  My very kind company recently bought me a shiny new Mac Pro (2019). On most things, it runs like a dream, except some projects in After Effects.


If someone has shared a project with me which was built on a PC for instance, AE on my mac takes an age to load it, and then it constantly gives me the spinning wheel of doom. 


If I try and load an old project I made it does the same thing.


If I start a project from scratch.. it runs perfectly as you would expect.


Are there issues with using PC projects on a Mac ??


Any help greatly appreciated
