AE Crashing - Unfamiliar Error Msg
on Oct 26, 2010 at 1:33:26 am

I keep getting this error message: "Crash occurred while invoking rendering plug-in 'AE Open GL.'" I don't know what this means or how to address it. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
Further info: I am using CS4 on a Mac.

Turn off Open GL for fast previews and for rendering.

To elaborate on Michael's sound advice, Open GL just isn't very important in AE. Using it when rendering rarely helps, and often hurts.

The really, REALLY big deal in AE is RAM. If you run AE 8 - 10 on a Mac, having 16 GB is a very good starting point indeed.
