Adobe Media Encoder CS5.5 crashes on my Mac. Alternatives other than Compressor?
on Aug 25, 2011 at 9:21:07 pm

Hello,

I am running AME CS5.5 on a late 2010 MacBook Pro. I have been trying to create some broadcast quality .mpg files for my local cable provider's Video On Demand service but AME keeps crashing on me whenever I add a .mov file to the queue. I am using Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects CS5.5 to edit video and create animations. I have been able to encode a few files into the required .mpg specs, but now I can't even add a file into the queue without it freezing up. I then have to force quit the application to shut it down. I have recently repaired my disk permissions and used DiskWarior to clean up and create a new directory. Is this a known bug? Is Adobe working on a fix. I hope so because I have some projects due in mid-September and would hate to have to resort to using Apple's Compressor instead of AME since AME is faster. Any help would be much appreciated.

Here are my Mac specs:

I just dragged in several flavors of .mov into AME CS5.5 without issue. Trash preferences and see if that fixes it.
