after effects cs4, intel mac 10.6.2

so. everything works fine, compositioning, testing, saving, everything.
until i render. the render goes smoothly, i get a file at the other end which is a good render, but the program won't respond anymore. goes completely solid.
stop halfway through a render? same thing.
open the same file after force quitting the program? same thing again.

i'm a little lost as to what to do at the moment as i have a few jobs due in to do with some compositions i'm working upon, but i did a few test renders and now can't work on them any longer.

help? :S

There are a few common causes for things like this:
  • If you haven't downloaded the free upgrade to AE 9.0.2, do it right away -- it solves a lot of issues.
  • Don't use open GL to accelerate renders -- it's often harmful.
  • Got 6GB or less on your machine? Don't use multiprocessing -- you don't have enough RAM to make it work properly.
  • And the #1 most common problem: using the wrong type of footage. Simply search for "Dave's Stock Answer #1" for details.
