For some reason, I can't manage to open any recent AE version. I've been trying about anything I could think of, read the frequent crash causes page, and spent time here trying to find similar cases, but nada...
With a v22 , and while initializing MediaCore, I have an AE alert window alerting about GPUManager Sniffer result code 11
On a v18, msg is slightly different but also complaining about GPU.
I've done half a dozen fresh installs of various versions, reset the prefs files, even created a new mac user : nothing worked.
I'm on a M1Max running OS 12.2.1, with an external display, some raid arrays, a video board, etc…
Thank for any help,
Sorry for the crash.
In some cases, After Effects crashing on "initializing MediaCore" means that there are third-party plug-ins that are causing After Effects to not launch properly. Try removing all the After Effects Plug-ins you're aware of and remove all the files and folders (except dummy.txt) at the following location: HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plugins/7.0/MediaCore
Let us know if it helps.
Hi Nishu, and thanks for your feedback that went straight to the good place! 🙂
I had an insta360 importer that went into the MediaCore folder without my knowledge, when I installed the insta360 stitch software last week. As soon as I remove it, all is ok!
I'm a bit confused that was so simple but couldn't find this out my myself...
Thanks again for your great input!
Do you have a lot of 3rd paty plugins installed?
As David pointed out one or more of these may be the cylprit
On the loading splash scrren, keep an eye on the pkugins being loaded and try to spot the one at which AE crashes
Then remove that plugin and see what happens
Thanks for your input Mo, that was indeed one damn plug!
Have a nice day!
