This looks like a problem with your video card driver, not After Effects.

Update your driver and make sure you are running the current release for the version of After Effects you have.

Brian is right- it is most likely a Graphics card issue. If you have OpenGl on for previews turn it off.

As Brian said, this looks like a problem with your graphics card. Update your graphics card driver.

This glitch is showing in the interface, not the comp viewer, so I doubt the OpenGL switch will help.

If the problem is still persisting after you update your graphics card driver, try disabling UI acceleration:

After Effects > Preferences > Display > Hardware Accelerate Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels

thanks for all the help...I'm deciding just to go buy a new video card...the one I have right now don't even support open Gl. What does open GL do? and do you have any tips for which video card to buy?

If you work ONLY in AE, and you do NOTHING in Premiere Pro CS5, don't worry about getting a hot card. They do very little to help AE.

Open GL acceleration can speed AE PREVIEWS, but it will almost always hinder rendering.

You need a hot card for a 3D application? For Premiere Pro CS5? Those are good reasons to get one. You should look at the Nvidia Quadro cards for CS5.

But a really good card for AE work? It's a lousy reason to get one.

I need a better card for Maya and also for premier pro. Because previewing in premier is very laggy for me right now. I dont need to get it for CS5 because I like to have my 3rd party plug in. Also I don't have a 64 bit computer for premier pro

Then get the kind of card you need for Maya; whatever you choose won't have a big impact on AE, if any.




[Victor Nguyen] "previewing in premier is very laggy for me right now."

Premiere CS4 wasn't built to take advantage of a good card. Could your non-real-time woes be due to the lack of a high-speed connection for your storage media, and trying to do HD work without the benefit of a RAID?

Keeping up with technology isn't cheap, unfortunately.

can you explain what RAID is? I'm probably going to have to get a new computer . Ugh your quote is right, keeping up with technology is costing so much.
