After Effects CC 2015.3 hanging/dies when moving camera in scene with spotlights

Hi! We've been running into a strange issue where having spotlights in any AE scene, and trying to move the lights or camera causes complete slowdown, spinning wheels - on both mac and pc machines in our studio. The only machine that seems not to have this issue is my laptop which has 8GB of Vram. I can't imagine this is the issue as we've done plenty of work with lights and cameras before. This happens on 1920x1080 comps as well as larger comps we're working with. DOES NOT happen with point lights. Any ideas? Seems like a bug. I've tried changing various memory settings, GPU/CPU prefs.

Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions!

Have you updated to the latest version 2015.3.1? That's are problems with 3d lights in the initial release of AE 2015.3.

Hey Kevin,

I'm up to date on some of my boxes (running 6) so let me investigate the versions and see if anything changes. Thanks
