After Effects 2018 stops previewing after a while. It occurs when I've been working on the project for a while or if I've switched to a different window (internet, other adobe app, etc). Purging the cache does nothing and only a restart solves the issue.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!
