I have an iMac with OSX 10.8.2, don't know what other info is needed, happy to provide as long as this can be solved...
It's one of the first times I'm starting it up, I might have opened it before, but have never really used it. But now I do need it.
EDIT: I've tried deleting my Illustrator scripts, using disk utility's repair disk permissions, deleting Perian... I read it may have to do with video codecs, but I don't have any, I think. Or could it be VLC?
VLC is completely autonomous, that's not the issue. Have you actually reinstalled Quicktiem? Trashed the AE prefs? If not, that would be the first place to start.
Aha, there is some development here... I started AE while holding cmd + option + shift, it asked me whether I wanted to delete the preference files, I did, and now it gives a different error message after crashing...
I cannot delete quicktime, because it's essential for Mac OSX according to my computer...
But thanks for responding!!
even if you remove quicktime from your computer, you can reinstall from apple website.
without any issues you can uninstall and reinstall quicktime.
