Yeah, stay away from it. I mean, stay as far away from it as possible. I've got 2 machines running it in my office and 7 that are not. I'm not sure what went wrong, but there are issues with Adobe and 10.9.3. On the one machine (used primarily for video/animation/3d), renders will come out choppy, artifact lines throughout, and Media Encoder will just not work after doing one or two renders. The 2nd machine (mainly used for graphics) has had nearly the same issues but on Photoshop, Flash, InDesign, etc. Files corrupting, deleting, lines running through the photo, even this crazy text thing where it'll be black and when you click it, it turns it's proper color.
Oh, and btw, any machine NOT running 10.9.3 does NOT have any of these problems.
We've tried turning off the GPU rendering but issues still persist. Run, dude, run. Stay the heck away from it.
Hope this helps

I second that warning. Stay far away from 10.9.3. I've heard that there is a 10.9.4 in the works, and is supposed to fix a lot of these issues, as I've heard it was OS related, and that essentially caused the breakage, and it's not just Adobe that's effected by it. I hear Davinci Resolve is pretty useless on a 10.9.3 machine.
I have a Mac Pro (New) at the office that we accidentally ran the 10.9.3 update, and I basically can only run FCP 7 on it with no issues, but everything else went tits up...
It is a HUGE problem. I have been pulling my hair out for days trying to render a 25 minute program loaded with multiple layers of chromakey. It takes forever to do the software render and sometimes it encodes cleanly - sometimes it doesn't. What used to take AME 10 minutes to output on my new Mac Pro now takes an hour and there is no guarantee that I won't have to render it again.
