Downloaded the Yosemite beta 2 the other day, not thinking about how all programs would work or not. So, all adobe programs open just fine, except for After effects. I've heard others having problems opening it - my problem is bit different.
After effects opens up, but almost all menu options is greyed out, and nothing is clickable. The only window that opens is the render que. Is there any way to fix this? I can't find anything on google.
Another problem is that the ray tracing doesn't seem to find my GPU. I got my Geforce GT 750M included in that Ray tracing list file, if that makes any difference.
Try going to Window>Workspace and select Standard. If that doesn't do it then check the permissions in your Adobe Preferences folder.
You have opened After Effects in Render Engine mode.
Don't double-click the icon in the application folder named Adobe After Effects Render Engine.
Remove any file named ae_render_only_node.txt in your Documents folder, as detailed here:
Yes I did open the render engine...
Only the render engine shows up in my launchpad, so thats what I clicked.
Thanks for the replies!
