After effects 22.4 keeps crashing on start up.
I'm using a 2021 Macbook, Apple M1 Pro Chip
Mac OS Monterey 12.0.1
AE was working perfectly and was up to date. Closed the program and cannot seem to get it back up and running again.
I tried resetting preferences (opt+cmd+shift) and I do not have any 3rd party plug-ins. I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling different versions of the program to no success.
Hi Patch Silva,
Do you see any error message or crash report? When does it crash - on the splash screen or post the splash screen? If it does on the splash screen, what's the last loading module?
Let us know, we're here to help.
Thank you for reaching out. It is strange! It only reaches the "Intializing Required Componenets" stage then becomes unresponsive.
I found the issue! Adobe After Effects is working again. Phew!
There was a duplicate font in my system. I had not renamed it when I exported from FontBook. Threw it in the trash and permanently deleted it.
