i have a problem with ae cs6 and multiprocessing. it was working fine for few months and now i am starting to having problems.
sometimes it works just fine, most of the time it get's stuck on initializing background procesess, and sometimes it renders 2 frames and get stuck there.
i tryed multiprocessing on same setup on cs 5.5 and its working without problems.
when it fails to do the multiprocessing, the whole aplication stops. even if i cancel the operation if i move a single frame it just crashes and go into not responding mode...
my setup is i7 2860qm, 16g ram, i have multiprocessing enabled for 5 cores (2g ram for each core). everything is set up the caches and everything. it was working okay for some time now i just cant get it to render anything. it even stuck all the cores on 100% and even after i close ae the cores stay on 100%. i need to go manually into task manager and close te remaining ae processes for it to go back to normal.
if multiprocessing is disabled the app works just fine.
i tryed to reinstall ae, and its still the same. i am thinking of reinstalling windows.
thanks for your help
I'm having the same exact problem. I DID reinstall windows and CS6 and it didn't fix the problem. Windows itself starts acting very poorly after AE does it's 100% cpu/freeze thing. I'm at a loss. I have work to do and spending another 2 days reinstalling my OS and programs isn't at the top of my "to do" list.
We cannot know, since you did not provide any system info. Regardless, for both issues the behavior is probably a missing or flakey hardware driver that handles power management and/or TurboBoost on coreXi processors, maybe combined with a wrong BIOS/ EFI setting. anyway, that's geek territory and nothing that can be resolved easily on a forum.
