What version of AE?
I am running the latest version of AE from CreativeCloud.
Yes I have installed the recent updates.
My operating system is Mac OS X.
It wont even let me put in footage so no need to answer this.
Im not getting any error messages.
I am clicking the Composition button when the error occurs.
This has never worked before for me.
Yes I have quicktime installed and running Quicktime 7.6.4
When I opened AE I was running skype, and screenflow. (Not Recording)
No I dont have any third party codecs/effects installed.
The only thing that I am using that I call "hardware" is my Apple Mouse which I believe dosent affect anything here.
No Im not using OpenGL Features in AE because It wont let me click anything before it crashes.
First I close out of some applications that Im running so I can have more ram avalable to run the applacation better. Then I double click on the Adobe After Effects Icon on my desktop. When it has opened, I click anything, it crashes.
There are reported problems with Screenflow's Soundflower driver. Try a reboot then disable Soundflower, then reboot and try AE again.
If that does not fix the problem something else you have is creating the conflict.
Rick is correct about Soundflower.
Its not Sound Flower because I dont even have soundflower. Sorry for the lat reply aswell. I am able to click within the applacation without it crashing but when I hit out of it, it shows the color wheel for mac and then crashes.
If you enable capturing computer audio in Screenflow then soundflower is enabled. This causes problems. Currently there is no work around.
If you have never enabled capture computer audio then something else may be going on.
I have enabled it. So that now means I just wasted my money on a really expensive program that I cant open?
I run CC and Screenflow all the time. You just have to go into Screenflow Preferences and disable uninstall the driver in the advanced settings. You can then enable it again after using AE.
What version of Screenflow do you have now? After upgrading my Screenflow to 4.03 I have no issues any more.
Im running 4.02. What annoyes me is I have to pay another $20 fee to upgrade.
EDIT: I just uninstalled the driver and it still does not work.
Still isnt working. I purchased screenflow 4.0.3 and it still crashes.
