    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.

    I have a dual 2.7 w/4 gigs of RAM and AE 6.5 is working fine for me. I know that this doesn’t help solve your problem but at least you know it CAN work properly.

    Yes- I forgot to say I am running Tiger.

    I’m having a similar problem.

    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.

    same combination here – if you haven’t got the 6.5.1 update for AE, I would try that. I think I found the update more stable and reliable

    I wish I could save… Sometimes I do have FCP 5.0 open and sometimes I don’t. But thanks, it was worth a shot.

    Done it! It doesn’t seem to be any different at all. But thanks for trying.

    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.

    So Wayne, let me get this straight. You cannot save. At all? Ever? If you command Q out of AE you don’t have a chance to save?
