Very slow performance - Why??

Good morning,

I have a problem with After Effects performance:
When AE reaches a certain number of levels in the timeline everything becomes very slow (selecting keyframes in the timeline, moving program windows etc... it's as if the whole program is lagging)
To do a test I created 30 solids of 50px per side (so quite light) in an FHD composition and the performance drop is incredible!

I attach my PC specifications which, although not high-end, should not cause problems of this type in such light projects.
Thanks in advance;

I guess the reason is shortage of VRAM.

Very strange, with 30 small solids AE don't use VRAM.

Also in the task manager i can see that it's not stressed at all 😕

Hi Davis,

 

Thanks for writing in.

Does it happen on a new project as well? Can you try running After Effects in Safe Mode and see if that brings any change? If it doesn't, share a screen recording of the issue so that we can understand it better.

 

Thanks,
Nishu

Thanks for the reply.

This weekend i'll try to proceed with the safe mode.

 

Unfortunately It happens with every project.

Also with projects that came from others workstations.

 

Thanks.

Here the screen recording. 
You can se how dragging some position keyframes became very difficult (this is a very light project, imagine with dozen of shape layers and footage).

Also dragging the interface became veeeery lagging.
RAM doesn't strain, GPU and CPU the same.

Safe mode unfortunatly doesn't work for me.

 

Thanks;

Davis

I made a video a while back to explain what's going on with slow playback and all the different options you can try to improve it:

Sorry to hear that you are still having issues. Can you share the screen-recording of the issue? ^KR

Could you also provide a sample project file in which you're experiencing the issue when you send the screen recording? That will help us reproduce the problem at our end.

 

Thanks,

Ishan
