I have the latest v.18.2.1 on a Windows 10 system and AE now stalls on the Cleaning Up - Tracker Controls for about 6 minutes every time I open the app. This happens even if I just close the project without any changes and opening it again - so no new tracker items.
Anyone else got this? Any way of stopping AE trying to "clean up" the tracker controls?
Found a user who knew what he/she was talking about and reset the prefs using Creative Cloud LShift+CTRL+Alt and then opening After Effects. Has it improved the sped of opening - no. Now it spends ages "Cleaning Up" AEDynamicLinkServer. Going to try an older version of the software as think Rotobrush 2 is causing most of the problems.
I was working fine in After Effects yesterday, and today I cannot get past "Cleaning up" on the splash page. I've been on this for HOURS uninstalling, reinstalling, reverting versions; I've tried resetting the preferences about half-a-dozen times, tried the CTRL SHFT ALT start, tried running as admin. Nothing is working. I've lost most of a work day on this!! What else works????
