So even on its best days, AfterEffects has always been some seriously buggy software. This is especially true regarding third-party enhancements like the Maxon plug-ins. Every time Adobe releases a new version, it breaks the 3rd party plug-ins. Maxon seems to be able to release updates without causing crashes; however, every Adobe update causes plug-ins to crash. Perhaps someone at Adobe will see this and take note? Normally, the solution is to return to the previous version and hope for the best. I just upgraded to the latest version of AE at the time of this writing and cannot use the plug-ins at all. They worked via the previous version with a number of sufferable transient issues, but now project files with typecast crash the software right away. I've also cleared my temp files, uninstalled and reinstalled AE, as well as the entire creative cloud suite, and mixed/matched different software versions for some semblance of functionality.
Has anyone had any luck fixing Adobe's compatibility issues on the developer side? Does anyone know what Adobe changed between the two versions that broke the software? I've already spoken with Maxon, and they've assured me they're looking into whatever was broken on this end. What is Adobe prepared to do for its customers?
