    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…

    Same here - MacBook Pro 16inch, M1Max, 64GB
    Preview renders are disappointingly slow
    even simple QuicktimeFootage with no additional effects or anything is very slow plays very slow - defenitely slower than my old MacPro from around 2013/14
    I really was looking forward to a big improvement in terms of speed with this new Mac
    hope AE-version which runs natively on the M1 chips will come soon (since I assume that is mainly the problem - some people mentioned the AE-Beta, which should run natively on the M1's is quite smooth)
