Adobe Master Collection CS5
I was finishing up a 3d product box in AE and once I turned on "cast shadows" under material options, AE crashes. Then when I open the project, if I try to do anything with the layers or timeline, it crashes. The error makes no sense to me, unless the 2nd part is irrelevant.
first I get
After effects error: crash occurred while invoking rendering plug-in "AE_OpenGL"
after effects error: Crash in progress. last logged message was <8852) <ASL.ResourceUtils.GetLanguageIDFromRegistry> <0> Unable to obtain the User 'Language' registry key at: Software\Adobe\AfterEffects\ defaulting to 'en_US'.
If I delete the layers or turn off "cast shadows" everything works fine.
Any ideas? This is the ONLY time I have had AE crash on my system.
Turn off OpenGL in the prefs and update your graphics driver.
Thanks for the info guys. works great, and now I have shadows!
