After updating Creative Cloud to 18.104.22.1688 and installing AE v22.1.1, I can no longer preview compositions in AE.
Doesn't matter what file I try, when I first open AE, preview will work about 1-3 times. But inevitably when I press space to play the preview won't work. What happens instead is the CTI will move back by 1 frame. AE has fully rendered the comp according to the green bar. So I am not sure what's going on.
I have reset the preview controls to default, restarted my laptop, uninstalled/reinstalled AE, installed previous versions of AE but nothing solves the issue.
