    Hi Paul, than you for the feedback and your constant attention to this issue very much appreciate it.

    "Hardware Accelerate Panels" may have helped CC20 so far, I have tried running heavy tasks along side an AE render in the foreground with the same project that was crashing and it seems to have helped. I am now relieved but not 100% convinced its ready for full time.

    I realize AE is a complex program and Apple keeps changing a lot of things under the hood (especially Big Sur and Catalina) but I think an AE20 update is mandatory at this point in time for Big Sur fixes.

    I will keep trying the beta on the side to see if it indeed is better in Big Sur, but we just moved to CC2020 from CC19 (we usually wait 6-8 months for it to stabilize in a production environment) and CC20 was very stable in Catalina.

    My main concern is things crashing during deadlines and I will have our people running Catalina as a daily driver while trying to test in Big Sur and maybe doing some big projects there and see if the problems go away and will report of any issues if they arise.

    In the meantime, thank you for your attention and quick responses, if you have any additional notes on how to make this work better to avoid crashes that would be great. Keep in mind its a fresh install of Big Sur from scratch and not a direct upgrade from Catalina (or any previous version of macOS).

    Thank you

    Hi Paul Uusitalo (AE Quality Engineering),

    I just tried the beta with the same workflow and it seems to be working better for the exact same project with all the same plugins (usually Sapphire, Continuum and some others). No crashes to report yet.

    Is v17.6 going to get a new patch to fix this or is AE v18 aka CC2021 going to come out of beta soon? And how come v17.6 works fine in Catalina 10.15.7 but not Big Sur 11.2?
