performance gradually decreases during session (purge doesn't fix)
on Jun 9, 2015 at 7:15:20 pm

Hi All,

My performance drops gradually over the course of a session to the point that it's unusable after half an hour or so. Restarting AE fixes it every time.

I've tried Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache, but to no avail.

Other suggestions?

Many thanks!

What are your computer specs? What is the full version number of AE? What effects are you using in your compositions? Are your compositions set to the standard renderer?

You mean you can't use your mind powers to download my computer specs?

(facepalm)

I was having the problem in AE 2014.0. Just updated to 2014.2, so we'll see if that helps (haven't tried yet).

[Adam O'Hern] "I was having the problem in AE 2014.0."

Ae 13.0 (CC 2014.0) had a memory leak when scrubbing audio [link].

Ahhhh that would have been it, since I was indeed scrubbing audio. Assuming it's fixed then. Fantastic! Thanks!
