Dear fellow editors,

I am having great trouble with After Effects CS6 12.2.
Performance is excruciatingly slow. I can barely open the project now, I just get the message: 'Opening… 100 percent complete' - sometimes this allows me to see the project after 10 minutes or the project just stops responding. Saving this project (that includes simple compositions, I use AE for motion tracking and colour grading, not much else).
Here are my system details:
Macbook pro with a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7 processor
Memory 16GB 1600 MHZ DDR3
Graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
I am currently running OS X 10.8.5 and got AE through Creative Cloud.

If you have any advice, I would be really grateful!

All the best,
Jayne

I am sorry, I just realised that part of my sentences was incomplete. I meant 'saving the project is also excruciatingly slow and most often AE stops responding'!
Any help on this would be great!

First, I'm confused by your subject line. You say "After Effects CS6 12.2". Do you mean After Effects CS6 (11.0.x) or After Effects CC (12.x)? They are different things.

Is this a new problem? Was this project opening correctly for you before? If so, what changed? Did you recently install an update? If so, exactly which one (and how)?

Hi Todd,
Thanks for your reply.
I am sorry, its AE CC version 12.2 installed via Creative Cloud (I am using the months rental system).
Nothing changed, I installed the update (12.2) in an effort to find a solution to this problem.
I use a lot of Warp Stabilizer, do you think that this may be the problem?
I have just tried opening a CS 5 project and it seems to be working fine.
I don't understand…
Do you have any ideas?
Thanks,
Jayne

So you're saying that it was slow before the update?

If you're having problems with slowness to open and save projects with Warp Stabilizer, see this:

Yes, AE 12.2 is slow to save for me too.

I think it's a bug. AE is buggy software IMO. 12.1 would give me a memory error message on closing, and now this in 12.2 Sigh...

This happened to me before when I had a giant-sized After Effects project file. If the project file is small, it will open and save quickly. If the project file is large, it will open and save slowly. If it's over 50 - 150 MB, depending on it stats of your computer, it may take forever to open and save. Even though it says that it's 100% complete, it still may not be anywhere close to 100%. It could easily take over 10 minutes to open a project this large.

If you're able to get the project to open, then try reducing the file size. You can do this by using compositions for repetitive footage, deleting unused files in the project panel, deleting unused footage in the timeline, removing unused effects, and deleting unused keyframes. You can always render and export footage with effects applied to them, import the rendered footage, and delete the footage with the effects.
