Extremely slow startup
on Jun 29, 2011 at 3:19:16 pm

Hi guys. :]
It's a couple of months that I'm experiencing a really weird issue with Adobe A.E. CS5.5:
it takes ages to open. When I execute the program, initializing mediacore can endure for minutes, and scanning plugs for even five more. The disk is not fragmented, and I try to keep the Workstation (8740w) as clean as possibile, what can be the cause of such a slow startup? If you need further info or examples, let me know, thanks in advance. :]

Several questions:
When did the problem begin? Was it related to an update?
How much RAM do you have? Is it possible it's getting maxed out?
Is the program sluggish once you're in it, or is it only a startup issue?
What else is open?

I'm not sure if the answers to any of these will be helpful, but they are the first things I'd look at.

Here I am, answering in the best way I can:

a) The problem began almost immediately when I've installed the many plugins I use. There are Video Copilot's, GenArts and Red Giant's. Not all of them *I'd love to but meh $_$*, when starting AE seems to act like an Adobe Photoshop that have to load tons of Fonts and Brushes.

b) It run smoothly once started.

c) 8GB, and it does the same even if it's the first program to open.

Stab in the dark -
If you have 3rd party fonts and brushes installed, uninstall them; or at least delete/cut-and-paste them away to another folder, renamed, such that AE cannot find them automatically.
Then try a re-load of AE. If no improvement in loading speed, put them back into their original folders, or install them back in.

If there is an improvement, and you still need some of those fonts and brushes, be selective and reduce the number drastically.

I have really have brushes, but they ARE in another folder and when I need them I usually load them on the line, during work, then resetting them. I maybe have 20-40 fonts from third parties but, sadly, that's not the problem!
