I am no expert at all on this but surely if AE is that important to you, would it not be a good idea to go back to whichever release version of OS X you were using before, rather than Mavericks BETA, to see if that resolves it?
Ohhhh Snap! I never thought of that, I'll do that right away and see if it works... Thanks!
If After Effects is the primary source of income then the decision to install and run AE on a platform still in development was not a wise decision. I've done a bunch of development over the last 20 years with AE, and I've always had a backup version of my system, a dual boot to the new OS, or a dedicated machine for testing so that my families income was not in jeopardy while I was 'testing' a new system.
It takes about an hour and a half to install Mountain Lion and AE on a machine. I'd do that and get back to work. In all of my years beta testing for many manufacturers and working with developers I've never lost 2 days because I handcuffed my self to an unproven system.
If you must test a new OS set up a dual boot, or boot to a different hard drive. Either option is available easily on a Mac or a Windows PC. Don't expect Adobe to release an update that makes AE compatible with the new OS until the new OS is released to the public.
As another note, from what I've read the problems with CC on Mavericks are mostly a problem with Mavericks right now. There's not much that Adobe can do about that.
Just one other question? Are you an Apple Developer? If so, did you not just violate your NDA???
Thanks Rick, I have gone back to my previous OS X (Mountain Lion) and its still saying the same thing. both the AE CS6 and AE CC are NOT working! I have opened all other Adobe products and they are all working fine with the exception of AE. And for your question, I am a student and a developer but I mainly focus on website and graphics designs, so I'm not developing anything for Apple yet and Im self employed. Please is there another way of going aound this?
Thanks StumpyBloke, I have gone back to my previous OS X (Mountain Lion) and its still saying the same thing.
Make sure you don't have other beta software installed. Make sure your OS is clean.
Did you start clean (re-install the OS) or just change versions?
Adobe After Effects CS6 (11.0.3) has been released. This update fixes many crashes and other bugs.
