Not sure which is the problem but I used the Maxon Red Giant uni.texturize motion plugin in a very simple project on top of still images. When trying to open the file AE immediately crashed. I tried opening the file in multiple machines but it crashed every time. I figured since it's a very basic file and I only used one plugin that I would just uninstall the universe plugin and that solved the issue. I then reinstalled it to see if that helps but it crashed again.
I'm running windows 11 Pro Build 22621.755
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X 16-Core Processor 4.10 GHz

Attached is one of the log files from that day. Hopefully it has some info in it.
