Since I've switched to After Effects CC 2018 I've not been able to use the 3D camera tracker. I've looked around and couldn't find an answer and was wondering how to fix this or if anyone else has had the same issue.

Here's a screen grab:

I've tried uninstalling and using the CC Cleaner Tool but it still doesn't work. Any help on how to fix this would be most appreciated!

Eli Sawicki,

Please see this blog post and go through the steps to troubleshoot your dynamic link issues, likely related to permissions. If that does not work for you, report back.https://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/permissions-mac-os-start-adobe-applications/

Have tried all these steps, changed permissions, turned Firewall off, set Little Snitch to allow everything and I'm still getting the error.

This is how I solved the problem. Close AE, then enter the Task Manager, there shut down all programs and background processes related to any Adobe program. Then re-enter AE and it should work.

Hey, so I tried this, I shut everything down including everything with adobe or creative cloud references.  Now, AE won't load at all.  I get the title screen for a moment, it says initilizing, then it goes away and nothing ever loads.  Did I close too much? lol.  Is something else going on?  

 

thanks.

Hi @TracyReneeB

 

If the splash screen goes away without giving any error messages, it could be an activation issue on your machine. Please log out from the CC desktop app, restart your machine, and log back in. Launch After Effects from the CC app for the first time after the restart. 

 

If that doesn't help, we need more information to help you: FAQ: What information should I provide when asking... - Adobe Support Community - 3928960

 

Thanks,

Rameez
