its not like after effects is having a hard time rendering the video in the timeline.. when i scrub through the timeline it shows the frames without any problem but instantly deletes the cached previews and when i press spacebar it only previews the one frame it has cached cause it keeps deleting the other ones i think this is a glitch and needs to be fixed
