We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
After the update, after effects can no longer be opened, not even with alt/shift pressed.
Complete reinstallation of the entire CC + Cleaner Tool = no improvement.
Graphic drivers all updated. No older version works either.
Since I have at least short AE sequences in all projects, I can't complete a single project = Thanks adobe, why does this have to be like this after every major update?
Premiere works by the way.
Does anyone have a solution?
Sorry for your issue.
What exactly happens when you try to launch After Effects? Do you see any error message or crash report? Does it crash on the splash screen or after it launches? Also, what are your system specifications (CPU, GPU, RAM, OS)?
Let us know, we're here to help.
Do you see the same as me? Read this post: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/after-effects-2020-v18-and-v17-7-does-not-want-to-start...
I have not found a working solution yet, and Adobe "Support" is non-existing...
Can you try the following steps and let us know if it helps?
CPU Intel i7-9700 3.6 GHz
GPU NVIDIA QUADROP P1000
2. Your solutions did not work, but it changes, where it freezes (now at "Media Core initialisation")
Today After Effects started normally. Did not change anything.This is the same with every update. 1 Week full of problems and then it works. My future solution: Dont update for 14 days.
By any chance, did Windows update automatically?
Sorry for the poor experience using After Effects. If it happens again, we'll be happy to help troubleshoot.
