RAM Preview not real time on MacBook Pro M1 Max
I'm currently having to use After Effects 2021 instead of 2022 because 2022 will not RAM preview in real time. I'm running a brand spankin' new 16" MacBook Pro M1 Max with 64GB Unified Memory & 4TB of space. The system is screaming fast so this AE issue is evidently a bug. Please fix as soon as possible Adobe because AE 2022 looks amazing and I'm dying to dive in.

Not experiencing this on my 32GB M1 Max. How long is the RAM preview and what's the resolution? Additionally, what's the bit depth of your project?
Hi Teague & Sebastian,
Thank you both for reporting this issue. Just to confirm, are you both running the December release of After Effects 22.1.1?
Additionally, what kind of media ( if any ) is present in your project? Do you see the preview slowdown in all projects/compositions, or only in certain ones?
The release version of After Effects mentioned above runs under Rosetta emulation on Apple M1 devices. There is a Beta version of After Effects that runs natively instead, which is available in the Beta section of the Creative Cloud Desktop app. If you can, please give the Beta version of After Effects a try and let us know if the preview issues are still present.
Thanks again for the report and for any further information,
- John, After Effects Engineering Team

I'm having the same issue. I've been on too many customer support calls and remote screen shares already. Adobe please look into it.
