I'm experiencing frequent freezes (not a crash) in AE 12.1. Takes 3-5 minutes (usually) to resume normal interaction on the timeline.
Mac Pro 3.2, 10.8.5 OSX, 32 GB, K5000 Quadro
A good first step is to open Console (Applications -> Utilities -> Console) and look for error messages that happened at the same time during the freezing.
Thanks, I'll try that.
