Is anybody out there able to use this combination? I can’t seem to use it on a Dual 2.7 G5 with 4 1/2 gig of RAM. It only sees 2 gig of the RAM. I can’t save any files anytime. And after I render something, I can’t use the menus at all – they are all greyed out. It works fast, I just can’t save anything that I do. And yes, its reproducable on my system.
Although I can save while I work, after I render, my AE menu is grayed out too. If I command-Q out of AE, I can save the project. And when I start it back up, all is well. This is under Tiger with 2 gigs of RAM using AE 6.5.1.
Wayne, are you by any chance running into this problem when you are using After Effects while leaving FCP 5 open? I THINK this is what is causing me my problem.
Maybe it’s worth trying to delete the AE prefs file, or just move it to the Desktop and relaunch AE. Doing this can solve weird problems like you have. Go to ~/Library/Preferences/ and delete/move the “Adobe After Effects 6.5 Prefs” file.
