Saving is slow, but fast when clicking outside After Effects
When you save a bigger project it looks like the saving process takes forever or even very long. We found a simple workarround - clicking outside After Effects - and snap - the file is saved. You can click on the windows Icon or in another programm. Whe you have Autosave every 5 minutes like we have its a time saver. It looks like AE do to many draw calls here or something that is only done when the application is in the foreground. Please check this problem. It exists since 2018!

This is absolutely a real issue. And the condition seems to be that it happens on very large projects with lots of comps and video footage. Please fix this, Adobe.

I get the same thing too, but with tracking, rotobrush, and so on. I think, somehow, the preview is absolutely trashing performance. in any case, it's unacceptable. have my vote and a link to others so you can help us get things rolling and annoy adobe devs maybe a little about performance. https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911311-after-effects/suggestions/44254728-stop-adding-new-features-till-the-program-works-at
