today I was so happy to install AE CS5 (as a part of the Master Collection) on my new Dell M6600, WIn 7 &4bit, Sp1
with i7-2920XM processor, 16 GB 1600 MHz RAM,SSD SATA III drive and.....the amazing 4 GB Quadro 5010M
Obviously, I spent some money, but this machine has to work like a horse and AE is not the only load it has to move.
........however, I sadly noticed that After Effects crashes like never before.
I have no idea why, the Nvidia drivers are up to date, also I installed all updates for AE CS5 and I even
installed a test version of AE CS5.5. Same thing:
- after AE started, it takes at most 30 seconds and it asks me whether I want to save this new project and
I can press any of the 3 options and AE simply disappears.
- also, when I try import a text file (OK stupid idea just testing it) it disappears immeadiately wiithout saying good bye.
I already disabled and eventually deleted the AE OpenGL plugin, but nothing changes.
Also in the Nvidia settings I even disabled the option to treat AE by this card, that is, it should merely
be use the Intel HD graphics....still same result....of course, I rebooted several times to be sure that
the changes really apply.
Dell believes it must be the Graphics Card, and although this would be case of warranty, I would like
to ask if any AE expert had an idea whether this is THE solution, otherwise several thousand dollars
would simply be destroyed for no good reason.
If Dell believes that it's the graphics card, then I would go with what they say.
Were you ever able to solve this issue?
We're having the same problem with a new M6600 with a Quadro 5510M, using After Effects CS5 - 10.0.2.
Apparently not... Not sure what else to tell you. The more interesting question here would be, whether otehr OpenGL driven programs actually work on the system...
