Since upgrading to AE 22.5, I can no longer use Roto Brush. As soon as I try to propagate the first frame, I get a message about loading Adobe Sensei and then nothing: the program eventually freezes and I have to force quit. This is on Windows 11.
I keep previous versions of AE - 17 and 18 - on the same computer. These two let me use Roto Brush just fine, no problem.
We still don't have a Known Issues section for version 22.5 of Ae but apparently something is happening with this version that I'm reading several issue. As a suggestion, continue to use any older version that is functional until updates are released.
That's quite a modest spec isn't it? But I noticed that if I try Roto Brush on my better-specified M1 Max MacBook (64GB RAM), it will also freeze up badly unless I am running my display (internal or external) at a native Retina resolution.
I get the feeling that the latest release of After Effects is doing something funny with the graphics hardware that it didn't do in previous versions. If I run an AE 22.5 training course through GoTo, for example, GoTo keeps bombing out or freezing up - on both Windows and Mac - which it never did with previous versions of AE running. GoTo support is tearing out their hair but the solution is simple: I train using AE version 18 instead, and have no problems.
