RAM preview stops when I switch applications
on May 29, 2015 at 11:25:46 am

I'm trying to RAM preview and take notes in TextEdit, but when I click out of AE (CC 2014) to start taking notes, the RAM preview stops.


2nd (totally different) question: On playback of RAM previews, it misses the first 12 frames or so, of video upon first loop through, then the 2nd time around it shows the video and audio in full. How can I fix this?

RAM Preview always stops when you switch applications. It's normal behavior.

It sounds like you're running AE CC 2014 on a Mac with the Yosemite OS. The weird preview behavior is also normal -- there's a bug caused by that crummy Apple OS. Adobe's working on the fix which will be released "in the spring".

Look at the calendar -- the deadline approaches.

You could always save the RAM preview (Composition -> Save RAM Preview...) if you need to play it while in another application.
