Hi guys,

this is just driving me mad. It happened before in other minor projects, and i finished without it. But, now it's getting on my nerve.

For some reason, after effects is not previewing the animation on the timeline while i scrub the playhead.
When i stop scrubbing, it updates to the frame i released it, but i cannot see anything animating.... If i move frame-by-frame using the keyboard shortcut, i can see. But it's a pain to check bigger animations...
the funny thing is, i can see the handles of the selected layer moving while i scrubb.
I saw a related post suggesting to change the display modes, or turn on and off the OpenGL... tried, didn't work... also, the color depth, checked, it's 8bit... ok... same thing...

anyone has some light for me?

thanks a lot,
hauck

I think it's pretty simple: you just turned the Live Update switch off:

Look for the paragraph on using Live Update. I bet it takes care of your problem.

After toggling on the Live update button, if it is still not working, make sure your Caps Lock is not turned on. I had the same problem, once I turned off the Caps Lock it was able to refresh.

Thanks for the CAPS LOCK tip - in After Effects CC I had to toggle the 'Live Update' check mark a few times, then turn CAPS LOCK on and off a few times and toggle the check mark a few more times before it started working in AE.

There's definitely a bug in CC, as Live Update was not working despite being checked in the Timeline Menu and CAPS LOCK being off.
