I just noticed this issue, not sure if it's due to a recent update.  But when I have MercuryTransmit enabled to preview my comps on my second 1920x1080 monitor, AE tends to crash -- either on the creation of the new comp, or when switching between comps.  Doesn't matter if the comps are the same frame rate/resolution or not.  I have to force quit the app (opt-cmd-esc) t


If I disable Mercury Transmit and elimiate the second montior video preview, the problem doesn't occur.  This is a workable "fix," but I miss seeing my previews without markings on my larger second monitor.


Anyone else experiencing this?  I don't recall ever seeing this problem before I noticed it today.  When was the most recent update for AE?
