My after effects keep crashing whenever i scroll through the timeline!

My AE pops up saying "copy save" whenever i try to scroll through the timeline, then when i click save it doesnt work, so i click cancel, and AE crashes, ive tried for HOURS AND HOURS AND IM SO STRESSED! I HAVE THINGS TO DO AND I NEED HELP!

i dont know any other settings other than that.
Then find out.
What exact version number of AE CS5.5 do you have? Help>About will tell you.
Your composition settings will tell you your composition settings. And surely you must know what sort of footage you have in your scene and what effects you've applied.
Also, the exact wording of any and all error messages would help.

    We have had cs4 after effects running successfully for 2 years now. Recently our designer downloaded a project as a quick fix. He has been aunable to open after effects. no error code just says not responding. I can access preferences to disable anything tried to isolate GL didnt make a difference. Trying to avoid purcahsing new verison. Can a viurs get into one Adobe program?

    Can you start Firefox in [[Safe mode]] ?
    You can also do a clean reinstall and download a fresh Firefox copy from and save the file to the desktop.
    Uninstall your current Firefox version and remove the Firefox program folder before installing that copy of the Firefox installer.
    It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    You can initially skip the step to create a new profile, that may not necessary for this issue.

  • After Effects error: crash occured when invoking...

    I get this error: After Effects error: crash occured when invoking rendering plugin "AE_openGL" when I have videos on the timeline and I am scrolling through them.
    I run Windows Prof 7, 2.67 gigahertz Intel Core i7 920 Multi-core (4 total), 12 GBs Ram, NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT (2x).  My system is fast.  I saw one suggestion to turn off openGL. How should I set up my preferences to avoid this?

    OpenGL should work even with SLI off. Yes, you lose some performance, but for AE's limited use of these features, it should be neglectible. If for some reason you still get crashes, then you may need to push a few otehr knobs and levers in the driver settings or install a new7 different driver right away. i just cannot offer you a blanket solution that would work from a distance. OpenGL settings are delicate, so you'll have to invest some time in your own experimentation...

  • After Effects Error: Crash invoking plugin AEDynamicLinkServer

    Whenever I start After Effects CC 2014 a text bar comes up saying After Effects Error: Crash invoking plugin AEDynamicLinkServer.

    At first when i downloaded it it worked fine but when i added 2 plugins it stopped working
    Please Help

    Do Not Delete program files that have been installed with an installer. BAD idea. Use the uninstaller. If you have already made the mistake or the uninstaller will not work use the Adobe Cleaner Tool then re-install from the latest build.
    Carefully follow the instructions here: Use the CC Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems | CC, CS3-CS6

  • After effects cs5 crashing - dynamiclinkmanager, Language registry key, Ivideosource

    Hey everyone,
    I'm running After Effects CS5 (10.0.2 - most up to date) in OSX 10.6.8 on a Mac Pro tower
    2x2.66 ghz dual-core Intel Xenon
    7gb DDR2
    ATI Radeon x1900 XT 512mb
    Dual monitors
    I keep getting the following error messages, most frequent to least

    I am working with AI files, some have been converted to footage, some still AI - continously rasterizing. I even cleared all AI files out to see if they might have been the problem, still crashing. File works fine on PC. Have reinstalled twice. Need to stay on cs5 because I'm working on files with others.
    Crashes randomly in a variety of processes such as scrubbing the time, RAM previews, composing, etc. I have tried resetting all preferences, deleting prefs manually, and some open GL things.
    Would cs5.5 or 6 work? We have additional licenses for both. Could also upgrade to mountain lion?
    Any other solutions or ideas would be greatly appreciated! Trying to get work done for a client and have tried running AE CS5 on OSX 10.6.8 on a macbook pro - getting the same problems, and its not the file (fine on pc).

    Well, I see the letters "PDF" in the error message, and that's where I smell the rat. 
    Illustrator can open PDF's: just choose the page you want for multiple-page PDF's.  Then make any necessary changes, and save as an RGB Illustrator document.  Backsave to an earlier Illustrator version if you can.
    You can even sort the PDF out into separate Illustrator LAYERS -- not shapes or groups -- which can be used in AE as layers.  Very handy.  Just make sure to create a new layer in Illustrator; most hard-core Illustrator users who aren't used to AE tend to overlook that nifty little feature.

    I'm using CS4 ONLY because I have a 32 bit Windows 8.1 computer which has Nvidia GFX card and an i5 processor.
    It has 4GB of RAM and that's all you need to know. Please help me guys. <3

    What I meant was that it was running at all was a lucky happenstance.

    No. There is no way they could do that. Especially not in CS4.
    There are a lot of people in the same situation as you who pop on the forums with some frequency. Well, not usually trying to run such an old version - it's usually CS5 or CS5.5, but the issues are similar: odd error messages. Trying to run old versions of software on new, unsupported operating systems can be a fun exercise (like getting Linux installed on a potato). However, even if it does work for a while, the least little thing can cause it to foul up. Maybe Windows updated, maybe a background service that wasn't running before is running now, maybe something subtle changed in your registry or your display settings or any of a thousand different things. The bottom line is that something changed between when it was working and now.
    The error message seems to indicate some sort of issue in your registry. That is a tricky area to mess around in. Have you installed ANYTHING on your computer between when it was working and now? Added any browser extensions? Installed any codec packs? Downloaded any apps? Updated any software?
    By the way, it's not very expensive to bump up to a 64-bit version of your OS if you did want to use a modern version of After Effects. I mean, if you want to continue working with After Effects, it would be a lot easier to use an older OS or a newer AE than to keep trying to kludge it like we are.

  • After Effects Immediately Crashes Each Time I Open It

    Every time I try opening After Effects on my computer, it goes through loading the title screen, but as soon as the window for the program opens up, it crashes with no error. I've tried all of the error tutorials and even Downloaded Adobe Support Advisor, but still I'm not seeing any errors being reported. The program just stops running no matter what I try. I am using a 64-bit Windows 7 machine with enough RAM to support this. So idea what it could be. I also have the most up to date patch installed.
    The only thing my Windows Crash Log says is Problem: Stopped Working. Description: Faulting Application Path.

    Any thoughts or ideas?

    So I haven't installed any third-party plug-ins for After Effects, since I have never gotten it to open since downloading it. Is that what you're talking about? I have the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite and none of them have any plugins except for Photoshop which has a few additional brush sets added.
    I also have my firewall and antivirus turned off and I tried uninstalling it and re-installing it. But After Effects still doesn't work.
    The only thing I am thinking is my computer has a i7 core, so it has an integrated video card. But then on top of that I have a GeForce GT 540M video card. I've tried checking the BIOS of my computer and it seems like it only uses the GeForce GT 540M as the video card. But maybe that integrated video card could still be giving me a problem?
    This could also be a useful tidbit. About a year ago I had tried installing Photoshop CS5 64 bit and it kept not working, so I installed the 32 bit and it worked perfectly. To make matters more confusing though, I have the Fireworks CS6 64-bit version on my computer and it works perfectly. So it could be that certain 64-bit programs have an issue.
    Any other info that I can provide that would hep? Thanks so much everyone!
