After Effect - What is Disk Cache and how to clear it

In this article, we'll explain how to clear the AE cache.

When you put together a comp, After Effects stores rendered frames and images using the RAM preview, this is so adjusting and editing of your comp goes more smoothly. AE won't cache frames that can easily be rendered, such as solid colors or text, just frames where composites have taken place and preview rendering is necessary.

 For clearing the cache, follow these steps:

1. Navigate to the Edit >> preferences >> Media & Disk Cache




2. Choose Empty Disk Cache
