I was hoping to find a solution about the issue here. Whenever I work on big complex projects a window pop ups randomly and sometimes the background is getting black and Animate wont let me close the window. Once I close it using enter hotkey it pop ups again endless. The only way to fix this is to restart the project and the bad thing about this is I cant even save the project anymore. The file size is right now almost 500MB. Idk if Animate even can handle that but please don't tell me to update my driver or anything else because its not my computer. I have a high end gaming PC with 64GB RAM and all needed specs so im sure the issue is itself on Animate.
i opened a 675mb project in animate 21.0.1 and haven't seen a problem in the past 10 minutes.
Try to save the 675mb project as other name then open both 675mb projects and copy&paste a layer from one project into the other project and then the issue should appear I think. Because this is exactly how I can recreate the issue.
i had no problem doing that (or copying and pasting ~10 layers of 1 frame) but i wouldn't be suprised if the layers had enough frames/assets that it would crash animate.
Hm its weird but thanks for trying. I have the newest version installed and everything updated but no idea what the problem could be. Or there is something in settings which causes the issue like max MB limit size. Im using Animate now since 2 months so I dont know if that even exist.
but you could copy 1/2 the frames, paste and save. then copy/paste the other 1/2.
you might-need to shut down animate and restart between the two copy/pastes.
