I just noticed this issue, not sure if it's due to a recent update. But when I have Mercury Transmit 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) to close AE when this happens.
If I disable Mercury Transmit and eliminate the second monitor 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?
My system: iMac 27" 2020 / 3.8 GHz 8-core i7 / 64 GB RAM / AMD Radeon Pro 5700 XT 16 GB
After Effects v18, Build 39
Attached is my crash report.
Hey JamSki88, I'm experiancing the exact same problem. Did you find a work around?
I downgraded to the previous version and the problem went away.
Just an FYI, the latest version (v18.2.1) still has this problem on my iMac i7 (freezing when switching comps when using a second monitor as the preview).
So, if you have this problem, I recommend staying on AE 2020.
Another FYI, I still have this issue on AE 2021 v18.4.0 Build 41. I'm sticking with AE 2020.
