concerning ae.blitpipe, whatever that is
Blitting is the process that actually makes visible pixels from your data, hence the blitpipe is the respective program function for this. The error is not as common as you make it sound, though. What operating system are you on? Vista? If so, did you attempt the usual of manualyl disabling Aero? did you actually try an older Nvidia driver? Do your video files play in windows Media player and other media players?
I forgot to mentinon that I am using XP Professional. No problems playing files in Media player. I have Sony Vegas 8 on my PC. Could that be causing a conflict? If it is, I'm not going to uninstall it as it is my editing program of choice and would use it alongside AE if I ever manage to get it working.
My Nvidia driver was quite old already. Not sure how old but probably 7-8 months.I've not got the latest one installed.
I have also been getting this error rather often over the last week or so. Nasty crashes that are resetting my prefs, deleting my custom user workspaces and render setttings and output modules templates. Any advice?

Do you use any of your video hardware to preview from AE? If so, disable these functions/ remove the plug-ins as a test.
Are you running Service Pack 3?
When you say it crashes when you Import, at what point do you crash?
After you press Import in the dialog? When you attempt to place the file into a Comp? When you double click it in the project window?
In case it is OpenGL related, try disabling OpenGL in the prefs (search help for directions) before you try the import.
I'm having the same problem except I get the error and crash right when the interface loads.
I've had CS4 since it was released and have never had a problem.
Vista Ultimate 64 SP1
NVIDIA Geforce9800 GTX
Intel Core2 Duo E4600 2.4GHz
Latest Updates for CS4
Something interesting: Lastnight I updated my NVIDIA drivers to the latest 191.07 and everything worked great. But then this morning when I launched AE again, same error.
Things I've tried:
Shift+Ctrl+Alt + double click on AE icon
Reinstalled NVIDIA 191.07 drivers
Uninstalled Magic Bullet Mojo trial for Premiere
Removed the AE_OpenGL.AEX file from C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS4\Support Files\Plug-ins\Extensions
Deleted Workspace files from C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects\9.0
Created new Windows user
Cried for a little bit
Unpluged all USB devices: Wacom Tablet, USB mic, etc.
Killed as many running processes as possible
Played with settings in the NVIDIA control panel taliored to AE
So the only thing else I can think of right now is to install SP2. I can't do that right now but if anyone can verify that it'll for sure work, I'll try it.
Is the 9800 GTX on the list of GPUs for AE? Doesn't it fall under the 9 Series?
I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks!
Whoo Hoo! Got it!
This is how I got going:
- Open regedit
- Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\After Effects\9.0.2\PluginCache\en_US
- Right click on MBMojo and choose delete
- Reboot computer
- Do a little dance
Nevermind. I booted up this morning and it's happening again.
What's happening after rebooting that would be causing this?
Do you have a wacom driver installed? I saw that at the top of the crash report.
Yes I do. I'll try uninstalling the drivers and see what happens.
I didn't uninstall but I went to Services under Computer Management and stopped the TabletServicePen and the TabletService Wacom services. Then AE launched without crashing.
I guess for now I'll just Start/Stop the services depending if I'm in PS or AE.
Thanks Chris & everyone.
Is there a problem using the Wacom tablet? I have AE crashing at startup on my MAC (OSX 10.6.2)?
Disconnected wacom tablet, uninstalled driver, restarted MAC : same problem.
All the problems with Wacom we have seen are on Windows, not the mac. You probably have something else going on.
i had a blitpipe error happening on my mac - the cinemaDNG importer bundle was the culprit.
deleted it and crash on quit stopped.
guess cinemadng isn't quite ready for primetime...
hope that helps?
Ae displays following message before quiting (i had to re-enter it as didn't figure out how to copy) :
last log message was: <2687939840> <AppDirs> <5> Required Dir = /Applications/Adobe After Effects CS4/Adobe After Effects CS4.app/Contents/ Required. Generating crash log,...
HAve same error, only happens when trying to open Cineform footage. It has no issues playing it back from the timeline or using it in the composition.
I have the same problem with CS6 latest updates! The issue is not fixed even now. WTF?!
I just had the same problem with CC AE(not trail). Disabled wacom driver as Alex suggested and it worked.
I'll uninstall wacom completely then reinstall. Funny how it happened just all of a sudden.
