Hey everyone,
I'm quite familiar with this old error and how to avoid it and fix it but when preparing new CS6 lessons for my classes it just seems to come up again and again without any apparent relationship to the assets I'm working with. I've mostly been preparing some "What's New in CS6" lessons and have had this error come up using Evironment Layers, Raytracing lessons, Motion Tracker lessons, etc. using text, footage, solids, you name it.

The main thing that seems really telling is that before this issue happens, the blue and/or green cache bars seem to be gone within my workspace range. Purging the caches doesn't fix it but closing and reopening AE does fix it.

Using the updates AE 11.0.0.378 on OS10.6.8 MacBook Pro 2.8Ghz Core 2 Duo with 4GB of RAM
All prefs are set to the defaults.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Just ran into the same thing. I ended up getting rid of it by purging my memory and cache (Edit > Purge > All Memory & Disk Cache

I found temporary (as I hope) solution. I use small application called Purge (might be just GUI for purge terminal command) when this error arrives. No need to restart or even relaunch AE. It resolved all my problems and I'm very happy, 'cause on my old Mac Book Pro CS6 is _significaly_ faster than 5.5.
