Hi AT Studios,

 

Could you try resetting the preferences of After Effects and see if that brings any change: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/faq-how-to-reset-trash-preferences-in-after... 

Let us know the outcome.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

thanks lot.i tried that also recently but its the same. i knoticed between clicking anything there is like a 4 sec delay before it takes effect. for instance i click  the text tool then change to the anchor point tool. before see the anchor point tool effect there would be a 5 sec delay. bu if i wait for like 5 secs before clicking the anchor point tool the effect would be instantenous. pls what can i do abt it. from reding online i heared it because of my AMD processor ? is this true ?

yeeeeah... about that. you don't have 128 gigs of RAM, (it stores each frame and can't do live playback from cache) AE doesn't really use GPU unless it uses ALL of it and lags out even a 3090 with 2k-4k footage.

Almost all its effects and processing is single core, (it's what you get for using a 29 year old program), and they removed a lot of multithreading in 2015. (yes, removed. it was there, but then they decided it "wasn't coded robustly enough"). so AMD cards are definitely the worst for AE. you want the fastest, largest single cores possible. so, to put it bluntly:

1 core, 6ghz
128gigs of RAM
2TB M.2 drive
RTX 4090

is the ideal AE workstation as it stands.

now, I can't legally suggest you get an older version, but older versions did use your computer resources more efficiently. if I could tell you one to get, I would suggest CS6, and surprise, even the chatbot will say so too!

but I legally have to say it's totally not right to use a program that was sold with a perpetual liscence, but through DRM was shut down and perpetual liscences deemed useless by the company that provided them and had a financial incentive to disenfranchise their users. Heck, legally, I don't even know where a copy may be obtained, and even if you were to get one, which I won't say you even can, you might have to deal with a defunct lisence system! golly!

thanks alot. i guess its the ryzen 74800h giving me the issue. but damn wish multithreading was active. damn 8 core 16 threads still useless because of single core performance.  adobe really !. and on cinebench single core performnace for my procesor was quite high
