AE is crashing on startup on Monterey OS, and whilst for others the problem seems to be plugins, I have installed a fresh copy with none of my plugins/settings imported from before, and the problem still persists.
For reference, I have also deleted any plugins from Library - Application Support - Adobe - Plugins... etc
Has anyone found a workaround yet, that doesn't involve Time Machine?
Error or problem
Freeze or hang
Press Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) while launching Premiere Pro. You can release the Alt key or Option key when the splash screen appears.
To reset preferences and plug-in cache at the same time, hold down Shift-Alt (Windows) or Shift-Option (Mac OS) while the application is starting. Release the Shift-Alt keys or Shift-Option keys when the splash screen appears.
If Vishu's suggestion doesn't help, go to the HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plugins/7.0/MediaCore and remove all files and folders (except dummy.txt) to make sure that you removed all the plug-ins.
Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately, that did not resolve the issue for me, however updating AE Juice did. I assume the new version overwrote previous files, but I still have no idea where those files are located (they are not in Application/Plugins, Applcation/Scripts, or Application Support/....MediaCore).
