This is something on your system blocking this stuff. Check your firewall and virus scanner and reinstall AE.
I've checked the firewall and my virus scanner, after effects and everything adobe is already allowed through (couldn't find one for Cinema 4D). I reinstalled AE and I am still getting the error AEGP Plugin CINEWARE SceneLayer: CINERENDER - Connection failure ( 5027 :: 12 ). It did not crash this time around.
UPDATE it just crashed after I sent the message
I found a work around for now. I need to run After Effects as administrator.
I have had the same problem.
I tried to start after effects as administrator (right click on the after effects icon and choose start as administrator) and now its works well for me.
I have the same tech specs and the same problem. How do I check my firewall to allow all adobe stuff through?
I am having the same issue. With me what happens is:
- I Launch Adobe After Effects CC 2018 (15.1.0)
- I either import a Cinema 4D file (.c4d) or create a new Cinema 4D file.
- I create a composition with the Cinema 4D object as a layer
- When I scrub the compositions timeline, After Effects crashes
It seems the last version of After Effects w/C4D Lite I can get to work on my system is After Effects CC 2015 (13.5). I noticed when I re-installed and launched AE 2015 I got a windows firewall pop-up to set an exception; I do not get that with AE 2018. Note that I work at a financial institution so I don't have admin rights to my system and sit behind a robust firewall. Is there a list of sites that should be white listed for Creative Cloud that I can pass on to my IT department?
I also suspect that there may be issues with how my Display Adapter is configured (again, I don't have admin rights to my system ). I use Mercury Software Only under project settings for Video Rendering and Effects (I also have to do this when using Premiere and Media Encoder). My system configuration is:
