timeline scrubber lags with audio
on Aug 20, 2010 at 2:00:05 pm

hey guys, just wandering how I can change the timeline-line (the red vertical line) to playback smoothly frame by frame in real time when previewing? Right now it previews and the red line moves along but in increments of 5 frames only. This is becoming extremely annoying as I'm cutting together a showreel and it's hard to pinpoint exact moments such as a beat in a song to match the cuts to. could someone please tell me how I can make this red line move across my timeline smoothly and not in sudden "jumps" whenever 5 frames have elapsed.

Btw I'm working on my PC but the specs are solid. It's just that I know that I don't have this problem on my macbook.

thanks in advance

cheers,Eugene

Why are you editing in After Effects? It's just about the worst editing application there is. Use something else if you can.

ok, that doesn't really help my situation I'm sorry to say. Yes, I realise that final cut (which I have) would be a better application to use for straight forward editing but I wish to use after effects in case I want to add additional effects to my reel and it would also be nice to resolve this issue for future projects.


thanks
