I have a large problem. I am running After Effects CC 2014 on a Mac Mini. My biggest problem, is when rendering, the composition will render about halfway (sometimes even 1/3) and just stop. It will say it fails, but it never provides me with a location to find the log.

My smaller problem, is when I edit an Adjustment Layer, my video will sometimes go completely black. It's not just that one video, all the video layers will go black, too. So I have to save the project, quit After Effects, and start it back up for my changes to the Adjustment Layer to appear, as well as the video.

It's driving me crazy and I'm not sure what the problem is.

Thanks,
Jake.

Is your AE CC 2014 COMPLETELY up to date? Have you recently updated the OS, in which case you probably have to fix your permissions?

Yes, I believe my After Effects is up to date. As for the OS, I have not updated it since the Yosemite update came out. This problem has just appeared, rendering and editing effects on adjustment layers and videos has never been a problem until recently.

I'd first try clearing your cache:

Ae CC/CC2014:
Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache

Thank you both for replying. Unfortunately clearing my cache does not work. What else could it be?

Try fixing permissions in the OS.
