I'm experiencing incredibly long save times in the latest version of AE CC.
Ram preview speed is fine. It's just when I hit "save" I have to wait, literally, five minutes.
And sometimes longer (seems to get stuck at 61%) I am using multiple clips in the comp that are quicktime/DNxHD codec. I would think if that was the problem, it would also be slow on RAM preview.

I'm on a macBookPro Retina with and internal SSD, 16gb RAM. The footage I'm using is on an external RAID 1 using USB 3.0. I've never had this issue before.

This is making my work come to a standstill.

One note that might be helpful: The problem temporarily fixes itself when I restart my computer, then slowly gets worse and worse.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Are you using warp stabilizer on a long clip? That'll do it.....

Not sure. How do I know if I'm doing that?
One thing I am doing is using Stereo Mixer (to pan center) for all the clips.
And there are quite a few of them.
Could that be the culprit?

Oh, you'd know if you were using Warp Stabilizer... unless you're just randomly clicking on buttons asking yourself, "Hmmmm.... I wonder what this one does?"

Running Mavericks? They're taking a lot of Mac / CC trouble reports on Adobe's AE user forum. There's some sort of arcane fix that people who won't be using Mavericks ignore...

....people like me.

How large is you project file?

Where are you saving the project? To your SSD?
