we experience reproducable crashes of After Effects freezing the whole system while rendering.
AE-Version: 11.0.4 (CS6)
Mac OSX 10.9.2 (on a MacPro 2012 - same Problem on a MacPro 2013 with Mac OSX 10.9.5)
The Video-Card is a KONA LHi with Hardware-Driver 10.6.
Multiprocessing is turned on and we tried different configurations. (MacPro 2012 has 48GB RAM, MacPro 2013 64GB).
The Media Cache has been released.
Taking a look at the activity monitor I see that the "Adobe QT32 Server" does not respond right after starting After Effects.
That leaded me to the suspicion that some installed Quicktime-Codecs may be the cause.
Throwing away the AJA-Codecs located in "Macintosh HD/Library/Quicktime/" the Adobe QT32 Server runs fine but then I am unable to open the AE-Project properly.
Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
Have you checked to see if there are updated versions of the codecs available?
What happens if you turn multiprocessing off?
the Codecs installed with the AJA-Driver are the latest so far.
Turning Multiprocessing off seems to help. The AE-Project that I got for testing doesn't crash anymore.
But rendering takes ages...
