I have the production premium on my mac book pro thats running 10.8.6 I just got the computer last year, and it has 8Gb of ram and its 2.53 GHz in the processor
whenever I run any of my adobe programs, it crashes after about 10 minutes. I'll be working, then I'll try to do something and I'll get the rainbow spinny ball, and the program just stops working. It forces me to force quite the program, and usually it's so bad I have to completely force shut down my computer.
in my 8 hour work day, I'll be restarting my computer 5+ times. And my programs crash about every 10 minutes of working.
This happens even if only one my of my programs is running, and nothing else on the whole computer is.
I think my computer should be able to handle this program so I'm not sure what's wrong. Or at least, Id like help to identify if it's a problem with Adobe or my Mac
Check your system log viewer for the crash reports. If it happens in all Adobe programs, it's most likely an issue with the licensing service or graphics in programs that use GPU features. Specific to AE or Premiere, also Quicktime issues of any kind could figure in from broken CoDecs to odd audio configuration. Anyway, seriously consider reinstalling the whole system from scratch using the OSX install DVD and reformatting the drive. It's usually quicker to just start over than trying to hunt down exotic issues.
It may be a permission issue
Try to repair disk permission
Creat a new user a/c and try to run application on new user a/c
What version of Production Premium? Have you installed all the latest PP updates?
