Hey everyone...thinking of upgrading from Mt Lion to Mavericks and wondering if anyone has any advice or warnings. My workflow is primarily AE in CS6, along with the usual plugs-ins and apps (AI, PS, Trapcode stuff, etc).
Not looking for details, but I know OS upgrades can be a nightmare and if enough people say so I will skip this one.

I use Mt. Lion myself with AE CS6 so I can't offer any direct experience with Mavericks, but I do know from others who have upgraded that in order to avoid crashes you will need the AE 11.0.3 (or later) update. Unless you have a specific need to upgrade to Mavericks - ie., other apps you need to run that require it - I would suggest staying with your current stable setup. Why mess with a good thing if you don't absolutely need to?
