I've seen a lot of other people have this same problem, none of the solutions ive seen are working for me.
Problem appears when i try to track camera, it goes to 'analyzing in background' then after 2 minutes or so it gives me the "timed out obtaining dynamiclink server connection" error pop-up.
Mac OSX 10.7.5
Using Adobe After effects CC
2 x 2.4ghx quad-core intel xeon
15gb ddr3 ram
I've uninstalled Logmein which appeared as a problem in one of the solutions but that hasn't changed anything. Don't have a firewall running. Tried uninstalling After Effects CS6 and After Effects CC and then reinstalling After Effects CC. Dynamiclinkmanager pops up in activity monitor intermittently, it comes and goes repeatedly when i try to 'Track Camera' but never shows any actual use of memory.
Is anyone able to offer help?
Could it be some confusion in preferences / library files between my CS6 installs and CC installs?
Thanks in advance
OK so i had this exact problem. After looking on the internet for while i had found no solutions. Somehow i managed to fix it purely by mistake. My firewall was originally turned off, as many of the comments suggested. Realising that perhaps turning off the firewall only works on windows, i turned on the firewall. I did this whilst after effects was open, and immediately the camera tracker began tracking. I have no idea how this works, and i didn't even mean to fix it like that. I literally stumbled upon the solution. Let me know if it works for you.
