Some font installed in your system is causing the system to crash.
Use FontBook to locate this font and deinstall it.
Sometimes just clicking on each font name causes FontBook to crash. Try this first.
Validate Font command is usually useless. It can't find bad fonts.
A most foolproof method is a binary-search: disable half of fonts and see if the problem reproduces.
If yes, deinstall a half of the remaining fonts, and so on.
It takes some time, but eventually you can pinpoint the culprit.
First Of All Thank you very Much!!!
It Works!!! .
But it's weird:
I disabled half of my font list, Launched after effects and everything was ok, after launches and working.
I start enabling small groups of fonts and launching after effects after enabling each group until i enabled all of my fonts and its working with no problam... now i have all my fonts enabled and after effects working....
Who am i to complain about it...:)
Again, thank you very much.
