After Effects Freezing/Crashing
Hi, I’ve just installed a clean version of Windows 10 to troubleshoot this issue – but to no avail. I was merrily working away on AE 2022 for weeks but just this Monday I ran into a MAJOR issue!
When I hit space bar to play the RAM preview AE freezes/crashes and the frame looks like the attached image. The clip is reduced to top left with a black border on the right/below. Before it finally crashes, moving the timeline kind of works but it lags and finally gives in with freeze/not responding.
So far I’ve played with all RAM/Disk Cache settings and reduced preview size to quarter resolution etc. However, nothing seems to solve this problem.
I’ve also tried this on AE 2020 and my machine does the same thing. This led me to believe that my computer is infected/corrupted but I’ve now installed a brand new Windows and the same thing happens. What could this be? Has anyone experienced this? I looked around on YouTube but no one seems to have experienced this. It’s so strange as it was working perfectly up to the other day.
