    Hi all,

    Thank you all for your feedback on these playback performance issues. As you may have seen, the latest update to After Effects 2022 ( 22.3 ) brings native support for Apple silicon to the release version. While we are not considering this playback performance issue fixed yet, but we do need some clarity around the exact conditions that can cause the playback performance to degrade, given that it appears to have originally been reported against After Effects running under Rosetta. With that in mind, please do the following:

    If you have been running into slow previews while using After Effects 22.2.1 or earlier on Apple silicon under Rosetta, please update to 22.3 and see if the playback issues persist when you run After Effects natively. Let us know with a comment whether you continue to see any playback issues when running After Effects natively or under Rosetta.

    If…

    So, I came here looking for an answer to this exact problem, and it seems that the steps listed to correct the issue do NOT actually work, at least in my case.

    I have followed all suggested setting work-arounds with regards to color space matching or turning off color management entirely, and nothing works. The choppy RAM preview persists. This is beyond frustrating, but almost not surprising anymore. Now forced to look into alternatives.
