Hello, im using after effects 13.7.1.6 and when i hit space my preview goes low quality, and when its stopped it goes to full quality again.
i want to play my timeline at full quality, but is not possible for me...
What am i doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!

PS. by the way, fast preview is set to off (final quality)in viewport, and in preferences - preview is set to half.

What is your comp quality setting underneath the viewer?

You need to have preview set to full and enough RAM to be able to handle the length of your comp for a full quality preview.

it means it has to do with your preview settings. look here

you probably get resolution set to quarter or something other than full or Auto. Auto is the default. it means it will get the resolution from your Comp Window - this is what I use. it means that if I am at quarter resolution in my Comp view, this is what I will also preview. if you are seeing full in the comp view, but low on the preview - check your preview settings.

You're welcome. if you are talking about this specific option, this particular "Resolution" option was there as far as I can remember so this could happen also in earlier versions... CC2015 introduced much more customizable preview options. having more options is generally a good thing I think as long as they work as expected of course. maybe this means the U.I can confuse some folks. the real problem with preview is the actual performance in some systems.

more about the preview options in CC 2015.2 (the one you have) and above is here:

You are using 13.7.1 aka 2015.2, since june Adobe released 2015.3, with a bug update in august. it's also called 13.8.1 and I like it very much. if you install it be aware that the default installation removes the previous versions, but you can change the default and install it alongside all of the Creative Cloud versions. also note that project's files are compatible through versions cc2014, cc2015, cc2015.3 so aside from new features or plugins, you can open your project with either of these three with ease.
