                1.What exact version of After Effects? Include the minor version number---e.g., After Effects CC (12.2.1) or After Effects CS6 (11.0.4). Do not just say "After Effects with the latest updates" or "After Effects CC"; give the specific version number.


                -Adobe After Effects CC 13.2


                2.Have you installed the recent updates? (If not, you should. They fix a lot of problems.)


                -Yes, I did.



                3.What operating system? This should include specific minor version numbers, like "Mac OSX v10.6.8"---not just "Mac".


                -Mac OS X Yosemite.



                4.If you are getting error message(s), what is the full text of the error message(s)?

                -There is no message when it getting error. It just show the spinning rain bow wheel to make me have to wait forever but nothing happened, so I need to force quit the program.


                5.What were you doing when the problem occurred? What is the exact sequence of steps that you are taking?

                -1.Open the program

                -2.Set the composition setting

                -3.import some file to library.

                -example .png file[normal picture file 37kb]

                -4.drag the file to timeline.

                -5.The program stop working immediately.


                6.Has this ever worked before? If this worked before by doesn't work now, what has changed on your computer in the intervening time?

                -Yes,It was working very well before, then it crashed. I didn’t change or update any thing in my computer.



                7.Tell us about your computer hardware. Include CPU type and number of processor cores, amount of RAM installed, GPU, number and sizes of connected monitors, number of disk drives, and how any external drives are connected.
