Not sure if it totally
works, as I can't simulate an AE Hang-up...
but if you open task manager.. make sure you have the column for PID and
Command Line available (view>select columns)
Then in your processes tab, look for the one that has the Command Line
column entry of C:\Program Files\xxx\xxx\xxx\AfterFX.exe... It'll be
the only one that looks like that.. all of the other AfterFX.exe
processes say "-m -headlessonly -selflink xxx"
remember the PID from that one..
Then go to the start menu, type CMD and press enter.. that'll open the
Then type this
taskkill /PID xxxxxx
xxxxxx= your PID number.
Doing this without having a hangup will cause AE to think you are
quitting and ask you to save your project if it isn't saved... Not sure
how it will respond if AE is in a frozen / hung-up state. but it's worth
a try if it happens..
