I'm using After Effects CC 2017, but I was using CC 2015 when the problem first appeared (tried to download a previous and a newer version, the problem persisted on both). Here is what happened:
.I opened the project. I see the message "Refresh Disabled (Release Caps Lock to refresh the view)" with the black screen, but Caps Lock is ALREADY released. I didn't even pressed it in the first time.
.When the video is rendered, the message doesn't appears.
.If I change anything, like just move one layer a little, the message comes back.
.Any key I press make the message disappears.
I tried to reset my configurations, with no success.
Trying to finish a project but it's impossible this way. Any of you guys could help me? I'm using a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Sierra, 2,9 GHz Intel Core i7, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB.
Lol, this was also my solution! So glad you said something!
Same here! I run in clamshell mode, and somehow my capslock was on on my closed laptop. (I suspect the cat.)
Well I feel really dumb now. This is what I had going on as well. Read this post, locked over to the Macbook Pro, saw the light on the left side of the keyboard. Slapped forehead. Thanks for transmitting this solution, had I not seen it I probably would have kept digging for eternity.
My cat activated capslock from another keyboard upstairs.
Huh? I don't have a second keyboard but I noticed that on-screen keyboard has capslock on that wouldn't de-press when pressing capslock on the real keyboard. De-press capslock on on-screen keyboard and the refresh issue will disappear.
