  1. Rotation tool seems broken

    With the latest version (17.1.3) the rotation tool freaks out when using it for the layer transform rotation. Somehow it does work fine for parametic shapes. Just by dragging a little bit, it rotates like 2000 times.

  2. Opt-out of the installation of Cinema 4D R21 when installing After Effects

    Add a checkbox or something to allow users to opt-out of the installation of Cinema 4D R21 when installing After Effects.

    I already have a valid perpetual license for Cinema 4D R19 Studio. R21 is pointless as it only allows me to use a trial license or purchase a license. The application is useless for those who already own a commercial license.

    To make matters worse, I must uninstall it every time there is an update for After Effects. Quite frankly, I consider it bloatware. It useless and it wastes space on my hard drive.

    I understand that there are…

  5. Split this forum into BUG REPORTS & FEATURE REQUEST sections

    Why is this site combining Feature requests AND bugreports together.
    I can't even filter Requests from bugreports.

    At least a filter would be nice to have!

    Thank you

  6. AE render files have wrong timestamp

    When I render out of After Effects (.mov file in attached screenshot), it shows a timestamp of one day in the future. When I render out of Media Encoder (the mp4 file in the attached screenshot), it shows the correct timestamp. I can reproduce this error everytime.

    My computer's date and time settings are correct, in the right timezone, and synced to update automatically.

  8. Prores 4444

    All imported Prores 4444 files are interpreted as 8-bit (Millions).

    A gradient ramp, exported as Prores 4444, rendered at Trillions, will read correctly in Premiere, Flame, Nuke etc. But the same file in After Effects is shown as "Millions of Colors" and shows banding.

    ProreHQ files do not have this issue.

  9. I want Japanese and English expressions to be the same

    I want Japanese and English expressions to be the same

    Internally want to make sure that the effect names and shape layer names do not match in the Japanese and English versions of AE

    When trying to open aep across languages, an expression error appears and it is difficult to use

    An example
    en = sulder control jp = スライダー制御

    日本語と英語のエクスプレッションを内部的に同じ扱いにして欲しい。言語を跨いだワークフローだとエクスプレッションエラーを発生してしまうため。

  10. Make Guide layers allow to use "Preserve Transparency"

    Make Guide layers allow to use "Preserve Transparency"

    When using "Keep Transparency", the effect becomes invalid if there is a video or image on the bottom layer. If you use a guide layer, please enable "Keep transparent"

    「透明性を維持する」を使用する場合に一番下のレイヤーにビデオや画像などがあると効果が無効になる。ガイドレイヤーにした場合は「透明性を維持する」を有効にして欲しい

  11. Bug: Audio Levels are not affected by master properties

    I built a video switcher comp with expressions on each layer's opacity and audio levels turning them up or down if a slider control is set to that layer's index.
    The switcher switches audio and video fine in its own comp.
    When I make the slider a master property and switch it from a parent comp, the video works fine, but the audio is stuck on whatever the switch's default setting was.

    You can work around this bug by linking your switcher slider to a slider in the parent comp, but this defeats the purpose of master properties as it…

  12. After Effects 2020 on Mac does not work at all with Arri Alexa Footage

    After Effects 2020 on Mac does not work with Arri Alexa footage that when imported into Premiere has the AMIRA LUT automatically added. You can see my first exampled here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27MpmJfKHqg and my second example from Arri's example footage here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9aRnCeu7PE The footage drops out, goes blue, and goes upside down becoming completely useless.

    The only way to get the footage to work is to recompress it all and the reconnect, but we are talking a huge amount of ProRES 4444 footage that I really don't want to recompress, especially when it works fine in After Effects 2019.

    I had…

  13. Can't select ColorProfile from importet ProRes Files

    In the newest AfterEffects Version (17.1.2) you cannot change the ColorProfile of an imported ProRes4444 File, resulting in a unwanted color shift. ( I am using ProRes4444 Renderings as Prerender-Files and always changed the Profile from Rec709 to sRGB) I am in general working in a linearized sRGB worflow.

  15. Text color is not applied correctly

    I created a block of text using the font Menlo Bold. I am experimenting with using special shape characters, so my text block looks like this:

    ♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎♦︎
    ♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎♥︎
    ♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎♣︎
    ♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎♠︎

    I want each row to be a different color. When I select the row of diamonds and apply a color, the first two rows are colored. When I select the third row, the last character in the 4th row is colored. Something has gone horribly wrong.

    If I use regular characters like ABCD, this doesn't happen. If I insert a letter character at the beginning of a line, the coloring…

  20. Newer versions of After Effects 2020 read Prores files wrong

    The way After Effects 2020 reads prores colors is very different between its first few versions, next to the several new ones.

    This is very obvious on Prores+Alpha footage and must be fixed. You can easily see the problems when comparing the same footage between After Effects and Premiere. Where Premiere reads the files correctly and AE does not!
