  1. 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…

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Expressions with posterizeTime fail to posterize if expression returns a property directly

    AE Version: 17.6.0 (Build 46)

    Reproduction Steps:
    - Create a New Project
    - Add a new layer
    - Animate the position property with keyframes
    - Apply the following expression to position:
    posterizeTime(6); transform.position

    Expected Behavior:
    Position animation is posterized.

    Actual Behavior:
    Position animation is not posterized.

    Additional Notes:
    The failure to posterize only occurs in cases where the expression returns a property directly. For instance, the following expression...

    posterizeTime(6); transform.position + [0, 0]

    ... does correctly posterize the position animation, despite the fact that it should be returning an identical result. This can be seen in my first example AEP…

  7. BUG: White dot/blob appears in 8bpc project

    I have encountered a weird bug. First, I thought it was a fault in the project, but today I created a new, blank one, added an empty comp and the white blob is back. It looks the same and its on the same position.
    Since its repeating in a brandnew project, this is likely a bug.

    Its only visible in 8bpc projects, all higher bpc, this blob is gone.
    I haven't re-installed AE yet, since its a workplace station and the IT has to do this and also reinstall all plugins. During a working day, thats almost impossible.

    Do you…

  9. [BUG] Wrong cineform encoding color depth


    1. Set up Quicktime/GoPro CineForm/Quality 5 as destination format

    2. Set it to "Millions of Colors" and render
      Result: AE reports the generated file as trillions of colors.
      😐

    Please fix!

    Tested with a 5120x2560 comp with both 8 and 16-bit processing.

  10. 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。

  12. BUG: Thai Language type issue on AE CC v17.5.1

    There's an issue with Thai type. Accent glyphs will not show unless there is another letter after. Adding space between removes the glyphs. If a glyph is on the last letter of the sentence it is not shown. See attached GIF.

    I am using the South Asian and Middle Eastern type engine but also tried it on the Latin engine without success. Testing with a different font also doesn't work. Testing the same project file on CC 2019 (v16.1.3) works fine - the text shows all needed characters. So this must be a new bug.

  13. CTRL+ALT+A no longer selects all visible properties

    Pressing this combination used to select all visible properties. now it just causes random windows to open and close. Appears to be a bug.

  14. Fix scrolling and pinch to zoom when using Wacom products

    I use a Wacom Intuos Pro M, I use two finger scrolling and pinch to zoom on both my home and work machines. (Home mid15 Macbook Pro running Catalina 10.15.7, Work 15 iMac running Mojave which I cannot update).

    This works fine in all software except After Effects, where nothing happens in any window. I know it's possible as I can use two finger scrolling and pinch to zoom in my timeline and other windows using my Macbook touchpad. And that is the exact functionality that should happen with the Wacom.

    Yes I can work around by re-arranging my grip…

  15. PNG sequence encoding parity between AE and AME

    I like to be able to render while continuing to work. Most of the time I can render in AE, but when it comes to rendering image sequences (particularly .png sequences) After Effects does it better. Better in this case means smaller file sizes which are vital for squeezing more performance out of the interactive installations I work on.

  16. Hope to AE can save MakerNote ata

    Hi, I used the MakerNote tab to enrich my files with metadata keywords. Is it possible to write them back to the output files from After Effects and Premiere?

    Thanks, Elly

  17. Not having to close and open after effects to switch audio device/output

    This is something that could improve workflow a lot. When I switch between i.e. internal speakers and headphones after effects should be modern enough to get it. It really is inefficient and quite annoying to have to quit and start up if I want to change the audio output to show something to my colleagues and then do it again before I can continue working on it.

  18. Always render Null Objects with 0% Transparency

    I often use Null Objects within my compositions- and its very easy to forget to switch them off before you render- leaving white squares where they have been used in you render.

    So why not as an overall rule just always render them with 0% transparency? There doesnt seem to be any reason for Null objects to be rendered so it makes sense.

    (You can obviously set them to 0% in the composition- but it often actually helps for them to be visible whilst constructing your comps)

  19. Ability to scale up/down comps maintaining stroke width

    The only way to maintain stroke width is an extremely tedious process having to add an expression to every single stroke path. In Illustrator double-clicking on the scale tool gives you the option as to whether you want to maintain stroke-width/corners or not. Let's get something similar in After Effects to save us severe headaches. Thanks

  20. Improve community communication

    Hi Adobe AE team

    Please talk to us. Share your thoughts and considerations. Don't be a black box. Victoria did well at the beginning, yet communication seems to be stalling again 😞
