I've recently done a clean install of my Mac OSX lion 10.7.4. I updated my Production Premium CS software from CS5 to CS6.
I'm having a lot of trouble with Open GL crashing.
This happens when I was playing about with video copilots Optical Flares. (I am going to get in touch with them as well !!)
I'm worried that my graphics card isn't compatible with the CS6 software.I currently have a ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB graphics card.
This isn't on the After Effects suggested card. Do I need to upgrade to an Nvidia card ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Processor : 2 x 2.4 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon

Software : Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4
Thank you for the reply. I have the latest version installed. I found this thread:
It seems that certain pro presets are having issues with CS6. Hopefully AK gets this resolved soon and issues an update.
So I have been having the same issue and I think I found a resolution.
Since CS6 automatically chooses whether it should use GPU for OpenGL or not you cannot disable it within the After Effects preview settings. Instead disable it within Optical Flares preferences.
Open your project and put cap locks on. Go into your Effects Controls panel for the layer with Optical Flares (or add Optical Flares to a layer).
Click the Optical Flares options link to open Optical Flares. Choose File from the menu and click on Preferences. Uncheck the box for "Check for GPU render errors" and check the box for "Disable GPU rendering."
