Since I bought my new Mac Pro, couple of moths ago, I just cannot set my After Effects to work. Contacted adobe support numerous times, of course, they didn’t help me. Posted a thread on adobe forum page, but nothing… no help in solving my problem. Last (but not least) resort is here on vh.
So, the problem is that my after effects is randomly crashing. Where I use some third party plug-in, or dockable script in UI panel. Last crash that I had was on Camera Tracker plug in from foundry, but I had crashes from videocopilot’s plugins and some other. Even without using any plugins, AE crashes. Everything, including AE and my OSX is up to date.
Now, what I found out by myself, is that when I dock some scripts into UI panel and make custom workspace, that AE crashes. All the scripts that I’m using on regular basis I’ve also used on PC and never ever had this problems; the ones I use the most are RepositionAnchorPoint, True Comp Duplicator, Ease and Wizz, BG Renderer… They are also up to date.
This is the error I get the most when AE crashes.
<ASL.ResourceUtils.GetLanguageIDFromRegistry><0> Unable to obtain the User ‘Language’ registry key at: Software\Adobe\After Effects\10.5.1\Defaulting to ‘en_US’. Generatic crash log, which may take a few minutes.
I have try to disable OpenGL too, because sometimes it can cause these problems, but with no luck.
I am a bit desperate here, because adobe doesn’t want or can’t solve my problems. You just can’t work normally. Regarding Adobe, a lot of people lately are very disappointed at them, as well as me. Especially with CS6 and CC having a lot of issues regarding speed. They just cannot make their software use full potential of hardware. A sea of bugs and speed issues they have and worst of all is the support which gives generic answers just to get rid of you. Well, let me say something to you adobe, if you expect to make profit in the future, you will have to change your system of working, otherwise someone will crush you.
Anyway, sorry for my fury, if anyone is keen to help, I would really be more than thankful! Thank you guys in advance.
p.s. I’m using 5.5
