After Effects version 18.104.22.168
Windows 10 64 bit (latest update: Security Update for Internet Explorer Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3119147) )
All Nvidia drivers up to date v359.06 (GTX580 3Gb x2)
Element 3D v2.2.2
I updated windows and now I am no longer able to open any AE project that contains Element 3D by Video Copilot. I understand that this isn't an Adobe plugin, and that the issue seems to have resulted from a Windows 10 64 bit update, but the DOZENS of technical issues I've had with After Effects and Premiere are driving me to search for means to abandon Adobe products.
Does anyone know how I can alleviate this issue or what might be causing it?
This bug could be fixed by updating the graphics card driver (from nvidia). Also make sure to run the latest version of Element 3D.
Delete the old installation and make a clean, new installation of the plug-in. That worked pretty well for me.
