Has anyone encountered a problem with dynamic link when trying to replace a clip in your sequence with an AFX composition? After upgrading to Mountain Lion, whenever I try replacing a clip with an AFX comp, I get the message that "The importer reported a generic error" and it never works. I've tried several different video formats and always get the same result. I also get the same error message when I try importing a PSD file.
I've started exporting my clips as video files to pull into AFX but when I try running Warp Stabilize on them, I get the error message that it can't connect to the dynamiclink server, and it never stabilizes them.
All of these issues seem to indicate a problem with dynamic link no longer working, but I'm pretty much out of ideas as to how I can solve it. I've tried doing several re-installs of the entire CS but (sadly) that didn't seem to make a difference. Any ideas?
Try going to Help | Deactivate in Pr. Close Pr. Reboot. Launch Pr and activate if requested. That procedure has helped some users restore missing codecs and presets, maybe it'll help your Dynamic Link.
Hi Jeff. Actually just worked it out. For some reason when you upgrade to Mtn Lion it hides a lot of the preferences and user files that CS must use. I reset the privileges to a bunch of folders and now everything seems to be working just fine. Random!
It's usually a better idea to wipe your hard drive and install a new Operating System from scratch (along with all the programs), rather than perform an "upgrade".
