Hi, I hope someone can help me with this issue. I'm using some footage from videocopilot.com and the first time everything worked fine but when I opened the project again(just some minutes after) the footage didn't play anymore, it just stays still in the a single frame (the last one), some of the clips plays but just when the preview resolution is at quarter. The footage is originally 29.97 FPC conformed as 24 in AE. It is in a 24 composition. What can be happening?
I'm using AE CS3 in a Leopard Mac 2GB Ram, 2.4 GHZ Intel 2 Core.
What is the resolution of your project/footage?
It may be that the 2GB of RAM you have are not enough if you try a full frame preview and you may need to purge the cache or restart AE and then work at half or even a third resolution/preview size.

Hey thank you so much. About purging the Cache, how to do it? just clean database and cache button?
Anyway I was really hoping it was a RAM issue, but I'm not that sure anymore, I enabled disk cache. Pre conformed the footage, and the problem stills happening (sometimes it doesn't even plays in quarter) even thought this footage is way smaller and less heavy than the rest of the footage that plays smoothly.
By the way, the problematic footage was originally in H.264 I exported it as Apple pro res to match the rest of the project. So, any other idea? thanks.
