I've got an interesting problem with CS5. Much as Pixel Polly would cause CS3 to crash my multiprocessor G5, certain plugins seem to be causing a similar problem in CS5.

When applying certain parameters to CC Flo Motion the screen starts flashing (flickering) and the whole computer is locked up. Nothing short of a cold reboot will restore any functions.

Is it the CC plugins?

Thanks in advance,

try disabling opengl acceleration for previews. choose after effects>preferences>previews and uncheck the option for opengl (i have cs4, but i assume that the preference is still there for cs5).

note this would probably fix the pixel poly problem with cs3 on your old g5 too ;-)

I've seen that before. They can't handle 0 or 100, so be careful not to drag the slider all the way left or right.

I was experiencing this issue last week on my Mac Pro.

Disabling OpenGL previews in the 'Preview' section of preferences seems to have fixed it.

I am having this problem as well. I've disabled Open GL and I am using CC plug ins. Has anyone figured out the solution, if there even is one?

I had this issue for the first time yesterday. Disabling openGL solved the issue. I wasn't using any effects at the time it froze up, so it appears to be an openGL problem.

Mac OS 10.6.4 introduced problems with NVIDIA drivers. We recommend staying with version 10.6.3 until this issue is resolved. This problem affects many applications, not just After Effects.

The link in my message goes to an announcement that points to the Apple page.

Apple releases OS updates through its own Software Update system.
