I recently updated to windows 7 and installed my CS4 suite.
When I open After Effects and the welcome window opens, nothing happens when I click on the recent projects. I have to create a new composition and then click on "File" to get to any recent projects. Also, when I create a new solid I can't open up the color wheel to choose the color. When I checked the preferences I noticed that, even after making changes, nothing would happen when I clicked "OK". I could only exit the Preferences window by clicking "Cancel".
Has anyone experienced this kinda thing?
You're installing a rather old version of the software on a somewhat new OS. CS4 was made to work on XP and Vista. Perhaps you should try running it in compatibility mode.
UPdate your graphics driver and check your input device settings. CS4 will work just fine on vanilla Win 7 without any hoopla.
That's good to know, Mylenium. It's been so long since I've messed with
CS4, I couldn't remember if it behaved well on Windows 7 or not. (Although,
with Microsoft updates coming out, you never know what might break...)
