  1. There's a bug - when you add a horizontal guide, performance slows way down. Hiding them improves it. Very weird!

  3. Fix Space bar delay, doesn't stop immediately (v 17.0.1)

    Doesn't stop playback immediately when pressing the Space bar. Instead, there is a several second delay before playback stops. That never used to happen. This started after I updated to the latest version, 17.0.1. Please fix.

  4. Camera Lens Blur Effect : GPU Accelerated Please!

    I use the Camera Lens Blur effect often, because it's awesome for creating realistic Depth of Field- when you plug a depth matt into it.
    This can be a Zdepth pass from a 3D renderer, or you can just paint one up in Photoshop to use on motion tracked matt painting work.
    Or mock up a simple instagram 'tilt-shift' treatment with a couple masks in a precomp (attached 4k example AE Project)
    It's the most sophisticated spatial blur in the AE toolbox, and it is super CPU intensive!
    Vote this up to get on the list of GPU accelerated Effects…

  5. BUG: Can't play animation unless I mess with audio hardware

    Often when I try to play my animation nothing happens. If I make some random adjustment to my audio hardware it somehow works. I don't have anything special going on. Just a couple of USB speakers plugged in. See video.

  6. BUG: GPU failure error with MP4 in timeline

    After the update to 16.1.2 I get an error when I have an MP4 file into my timeline. It's a simple HD MP4 which gave me no issues prior to the update. There are no effects on the layer. Windows 10, Nividia GTX 1080. Cache clearing does not resolve. Please advise.

    Error: "After Efects has encountered a failure related to GPU-enabled effects on this frame. This is likely because your GPU is out of memory."

  7. Can Mocha AE be updated to allow unsupported graphics cards again?

    It appears to have a bug where ticking 'allow unsupported graphics cards' (in order to get the Quadro RTX 4000 to perform motion tracking in the tool) in the Mocha AE settings does take - it forgets the setting on restart of AE or re-entering the plugin in the same session (and doesn't immediately affect the performance either).

    Mocha Pro has had the fix for a while now - it sounds like it was a driver incompatibility introduced by Nvidia.

    It would be good to actually extend support to all the Quadro cards to, rather than just the RTX 5000…

  9. Motion Sketch in AE 2020 operates slow and cludgy.

    The frame rate and viewport feedback turn to trash when using the motion sketch in AE 2020.

  11. Bug: After effects 2019 16.1.2 render engine, Waits for 2 min until closing after a 2 second long render is complete, AE 2018 15.0 does not

    We currently use After effects Rendering engine 2018 in a farm environment to support the production. Those installation packages have all included serials so it works without any issues.

    2019 packages on the other hand have been created with FRL as that was suggested as a replacement.

    But when we try to render using that packages we get the following issue.
    The render starts and render the frames of our test scene in 1-2 seconds.
    But then the process just sits there, doing nothing at all for another 2min. Waiting on something?. Then it closes it self.

    Compared to 2018…

  12. After the update to 16.1.2 Ae is extremely slow to Open, and it hangs saving projects

    Ae since updating to 16.1.2 is very slow when saving projects or opening. During opening it always hangs in "Cleaning Up" and on some random bit that it is cleaning up like SnapCut.
    When saving, Ae hangs for 1 to 2 minutes unless there is either nothing in a project. This is on Windows 10 Pro i7, 16GB RAM, PCIe SSD.

  14. slow text entry BUG

    When I have too many windows open in my workspace, the text re-draw can't keep up with my typing speed. When I type text into a comp, I have to type very slowly to avoid missing letters. However, if I close windows in my workspace, it keeps up. While this workaround will get me by, it's not acceptable. AE should be able to have as many windows open as I like and it should not slow down my system. I'm on a Mac Pro using the latest versions of everything.

  15. AE CC 2019 Slowing down [Windows]

    There is an issue where After Effects will slow down after having the program open for a while. Purging the cache doesn't work and the only solution is to quit and re-open it. The issue occurs on heavy projects or very simple projects with minimal layers.

    This issue seems to only be on Windows as I haven't experienced this on Macs.

  16. Multi-GPU support for Mercury engine.

    Modern desktops & laptops often got more than one GPU. Currently there's no way to utilize more than one of them.

  18. 2 point line (pen tool) bug - when you can't select line, or align it correctly with other layers.

    PEN TOOL - If you holding SHIFT and draw a vertical or horizontal 2 point line with pen tool it causes a bug - creating a random little artefact in a middle of a scene, you can't select that line with selection tool (unless you precisely select that 1 pixel box in a centre of a stage) and you can't align that line correctly with other shapes.

  20. RAM preview ridiculous slow with high end tower pc

    Hey,

    I'm using a Win 10 64 Bit Tower pc with Adobe After Effects CC 16.1.1
    The problem is that the RAM preview is ridiculous slow. Are there any components that are not supported in AE?
    - Nvdia RTX 2080 TI
    - I9-9920X
    - Samsung SSD 970 Pro
    - 64 GB RAM

    Im sure there are multiple requests that facing same issues.

    Thanks
    David
