Issue with Preview in After Effects CC 2018

Hey all,

So I've had an ongoing issue with AE where, if I am in the middle of a project, using the space bar to preview my project doesn't actually work. Instead, it'll toggle the play and stop icons under the preview section, but the timeline will simply go back one frame. The weird thing is this will happen randomly during the project. I can use space multiple times to playback the project, but then it'll just stop and revert to the previous frame.

Any advice? Thanks!

Hit zero on the numeric keypad & see what happens. I religiously avoid using the space bar.

Hey Dave, thanks for the response. So far it's been working like expected but if the 0 starts behaving the same way I'll bump the thread. Thanks!

Remember that AE in no way behaves like a video editor. It renders EVERYTHING. And that takes time.

If you expect real time playback when you hit the space bar after make a change in a comp, you'll be disappointed every time. That ain't how AE works.
