Weird Preview problem
on Nov 27, 2012 at 4:08:37 pm

I've got a bit of a weird problem.

For the last few weeks/months I've found that when I RAM preview it ALWAYS previews from the playhead no matter if the 'From Current Time' box on the Preview tab is ticked or not.

I've done a bit of testing - turning on and off multiprocessing, disabled Global Cache (which although awesome when it works is pretty flaky), but no joy as yet.

I think this stems from the time of the latest update I did. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Do you use the Play panel in AE, or whatever they call it? There are preview controls that determine HOW AE previews. Perhaps you have to futz with them.

I sometimes use the Preview panel, sometime use the keypad, and sometimes press space (although not all that often).

I'll keep playing around and see if anything sorts it out. It's no more than a minor annoyance.

I also sometimes find that when I RAM preview and head off to another program, when it finishes the segment I navigate back press the play button and it starts from scratch. Touch annoying!
