    AE / Mac Pro 6,1: Render Error!


      Hello. I found during the render an error that does not allow me to go out with my final file.

      Each 8 seconds rendered, After Effects crashes with this error advice:


      Register rendering v13.5 Macintosh 64 Adobe After Effects for the project "mapping_castello_v018_2015_peraga.aep"

      Once the error appears I have to close and restart the software.

      I'm working with a very performing machine and I do not understand how it is possible ...


      Hardware summary:


        Model Name: Mac Pro

        Model Identifier: MacPro6,1

        Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5

        Processor speed: 3.7 GHz

        Number of processors: 1

        Number of Core: 4

        L2 cache (per core): 256 KB

        L3 Cache: 10 MB

        Memory: 20 GB

        Boot ROM Version: MP61.0116.B07

        SMC Version (system): 2.20f18

        Version lighting: 1.4a6

        Hardware UUID: FD4796AB-E6F3-5061-AE65-92A5693DB289


      I set the AE preferences related to memory to 16 GB dedicated and I ticked the box for the reduction of the cache memory if it's almost full.

      What can I do to get more performances from my Mac Pro and get faster render without this kind of mistakes?


      Thanks a lot!
