  2. Cache doesn't refresh when changes occur

    I'm having to Purge Cache constantly because the viewport will not update after a property change. the viewport will just display the cached version of the frame.

  3. AfterEffects says my system disk doesn't have enough available space for disk cache even though it does.

    System: AfterEffects CC 2019 / macOS Mojave 10.14.3 / MBP 2018

    TL;DR: AE apparently warns on the available disk space for disk cache based on df. But "Avail" value from df apparently dramatically different from Finder on Mojave when you have local snapshots of TimeMachine.

    My disk cache folder was "/Macintosh HD/yasuharu/Library/Cache" and Maximum disk cache size was 30GB.
    After launching AE, I got a warning "Your disk cache folder is on a drive that does not have enough available space to safely store the full amount specified in your preference. Please make more space or go to Media &…

  4. Bug in April 2019 version : stabilisation

    stabilisation freezes when applied to the same comp in different generations one after another with different "lissage" % (in French) -> obliged to use 2018 version.
    This never occurred in all former versions I was using (since CS5.5)

  6. Possible concatenation bug?

    In After Effects, effect("Slider Control")(1).value + "string" can be used to join the number of a slider with a string.

    Another way to do this is effect("Slider Control")(1).toString() + "string". Here, effect("Slider Control")(1).toString() returns the slider's value as a string.

    However, effect("Slider Control")(1) + "string" always outputs an error.

    How is this possible?

    effect("Slider Control")(1).toString() clearly returns the slider's value as a string.

    How come toString() is not run automatically when effect("Slider Control")(1) is concatenated with "string"?

    According to the JavaScript Definitive Guide (https://www.oreilly.com/library/view/javascript-the-definitive/0596101996/re146.html):

    "The JavaScript system invokes the toString( ) method to convert an object to a string…

  8. Vague Alerts & Requests from CC

    This is not normal. After Effects CC is requesting access to my contacts. Earlier it wanted write privileges.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    My CC account is a valid, paid subscription through work. I have the latest version. Nothing is pirated. I am using two plugins, Ouroboros and Animation Composer.

  9. Videos export darker than project

    Every time I export from AE, the videos come out about 10-15% darker than the original. I've tried many different export settings with the same results. If one were to take a video, put it in AE, export it with a rewrap, take the exported video, put it in a new comp, and repeat this several times, the results become very obvious. It's exporting darker every time.

    Thank you for your post.

    I’m not clear on what you’re describing. It would help if you could provide us screenshots or a project file that demonstrate the issue.

    Post a link to your files here, or if you prefer not to post publicly you can send it to aebugs@adobe.com. (If you send to that address: A) Do not send .zip files, they will be blocked; renaming to .thisisazipfile is OK. B) Post a comment here when you have sent the email. I need to manually check that inbox.)

    Maintain transparency "is used as a guide layer at the bottom of the layer, I want you to stop specifying that it will not come out by affecting it. (I'd like you to specify the guide layer as an exception)

  17. Bug - Failing to export high quality videos

    Since 2019 was introduced, currently all codecs used for exporting outside of low quality ones like avi and mpeg4 are resulting in videos with flickers and broken animations, as if the graphics card is failing - this is taking place when mercury software only is being used as well as enhancements.

    This is the case when AE content is present in Premiere Pro or through Media Encoder.

  18. Add a key to nudge Rotation in 1/10 of a degree

    While manual tracking, or rotoscoping, I find myself often entering rotation values numerically, since the keyboard only allows us to rotate in whole degrees.
    It would be very effective if a modifier key could make this more accurate: in steps of 0.1 degree. (just like it's possible to rotate in steps of 10, by pressing a modifier)

  19. Missing plugin notice gives no information on where the missing plugin layer is

    Opening up an older project, you sometimes get a notification about a missing plugin, but then no information on how to track down where the problem plugin is.

    How many layers have the issue?

    Can the layers and comps have a warning symbol so you can see where the problem is?

    Can there be some sort of log that lists what comp and what layers are missing plugins?

    It's really annoying to hunt around for them, delete/replace them, reopen the scene and it still give the same error because you couldn't find them all.

    Thank you for filing this feature request.

    Currently in After Effects, you can use the Search fields at the top of the Project or Timeline panels to search for either:
    - The keyword “Missing Effects” (which is a saved term if you click on the magnifying glass icon). This will show all comps in the Project panel, or layers in the Timeline panel that reference effects that could not be loaded.
    - The name of the effect that was reported as missing.

    Does the above functionality meet your needs, or do you still desire additional functionality?

  20. Add metadata back in to project files

    After Effects used to add in a "CreatorTool" to the xmp metadata in the project file (eg. "<xmp:CreatorTool>Adobe After Effects CC 2018 (Windows)/xmp:CreatorTool").

    This is really useful for finding out the version of AE the project was created in, so the correct version can be opened (especially when coding). This also displayed data in Adobe Bridge that's now missing.

    Any reason why this was removed in CC 2019? Can we have it back?
