  1. After Effectsの音の不具合

    After Effects 22.0.1を使っていますが、音声のオーバーラップをすると、途中で音量が一瞬小さくなります。CS6の時代は問題なく使えました。…というか、何でこのページ、英語ばっかりなんだ!

  3. After effect 22.0 layers become unresponsive

    when you are creating any layers, immediately they become unresponsive. changing colours, saving file, selecting various tools all works but it doesn't reflect on the layers as nothing changes. Even if you hide the layer by turning off the eye icon, the layer is still not hidden. The work area is stuck while all other things work. When you close the project and open new composition, it opens up the same project in the stuck state. I have been figuring this issue since last 3 days. each time i have to force quit AE and still haven't a clue as…

  4. CUSTOM GPU SELECTION

    Im running after effects 2022. Im on the newest Mac Por Tower. I have (2) GPU's installed. The normal AMD Radion Pro 580X, and the AMD Radion Pro w5700x. When I goto my AE preferences, then "Fast Previews" and click on my "GPU information" it shows im only using my Radion 580X, not the the much faster W5700X. i have worked with your team on troubleshooting this and there's no way for after effects to recognize my W5700x. I would be great if after effects allowed me to select what GPU i'd like to use for my renders and previews.

  5. AE Comp window freezing / crashing with RAM

    Running latest version of AE (18.4.1 Build 4) on a Windows laptop
    16gb RAM
    8gb GPU

    When running after effects I can have a simple scene set up just a shape layer with wiggle on the position and an adjustment layer with any effect, wave warp for example, and after RAM previewing a few seconds the memory will fill up and the Comp window will freeze on the frame it's on. I can select anything/type/make changes in the other windows but nothing can be selected in the comp window. I have to restart the program to do anything but it…

  6. Exporting in AE Needs to Have Way Better GPU Acceleration

    Exporting in After Effects or In Media Encoder (From AE) Needs to Have Way Better GPU Acceleration like in the Premiere Update (when using H.254, HEVEC H.265 or Mov) that uses up to %100 percent of the GPU

  7. RAM Preview Issue on macOS Monterey

    I'm having an issue since upgrading to the new MacBook Pro & macOS Monterey -- in After Effects, doing extremely simple logo animation (nothing but some vector points moving), the preview works when I first open AE but then will be no more than 1 second long after about 5 minutes of use. Frequently, I get the error to the effect of "there must be more than 2 frames in the cache to preview." In Activity Monitor, I can see that AE is using almost the entirety of my computer's 16GB of RAM at that point.

    I am having a…

  8. Faster rendering/previewing of video files within After Effects.

    Faster rendering/previewing of video files within After Effects.
    If necessary make it only work with a few codecs.

    Example, I need to change the last 5 seconds of a 1 minute project.
    So, I get the last video file I've rendered, put it on a time line and add the last 5 seconds of the updated comp at the end.
    Now it took AE 36 minutes to just re-render the clip before touching those last 5 seconds.
    PR does this in about 10 seconds.

    A long time ago, pre-2014 versions, AE was capable of rendering video files pretty quickly, but…

  9. Rotobrush v2 optimised for GPU

    Rotobrush v2 should be optimised for GPU(s).
    If the tool was heavily optimised, it will be used a lot more as a quick goto tool.

  10. Startup "Cleaning Up" freezes when mapped network drives are connected but not accessible

    After Effects 18.4.1 (Build 4)
    After Effects 22.0.1 (Build 2)

    Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043

    I have 2 drives mapped on my machine one for a local NAS and another for a work server I access via VPN.
    When connected to the VPN the NAS drive is not accessible and vice-versa.
    AE freezes for several seconds, sometimes a couple of minutes while starting up at the "Cleaning Up" part if any of the drives are mapped but not accessible.
    Having File Explorer fail to connect to the inaccessible drive seems to sometimes improve the freezing period.
    Disconnecting an…

  11. BUG: Fit up to 100% mot maintaining correct aspect ratio

    When adjusting the window frame wit Fit IUp to 100% in the Composition viewer, aspect ratio is not being maintained correctly. Circles go from Being wider to being taller. This is in a square pixel HD comp and it does not display correctly until zoomed to standard percentage size.
    Issue is the same with or without GPU acceleration or any of the scaling quality setting (More Accurate)

  12. [BUG] Not saving the project while connected to secondary monitor on apple M1

    Macbook Pro 2020 M1 chip Big Sur
    When I connect my Macbook Pro to a secondary display (Apple Cinema Display Thunderbolt 2) After Effects does not save the project. no matter using a keyboard shortcut or clicking on Save on File menu. even on save prompt on closing the project does not operate. It doesn't return any error or message, it simply ignores the save command.
    Without secondary monitor connected it works as expected.

  13. Deleting comps does not delete all the effects' data

    i observed that when deleting all comps except folders, my file saved at 3.5 MB. i rebuilt the identical folder structure from scratch; the saved file was only 11 KB – 0.3%!! 99.7% of the larger file is garbage data.

    I built a user template from old projects, deleting the data. It was slow to load. I deleted all the comps and kept the folders because sometimes I only need the folders. That file was the 3.5M file. I looked inside the aepx but could not delete the data (not sure what to delete). I built the folder template from…

  14. Rotoscoping Performance

    Fix the atrocious performance of RotoScoping.
    This is excruciating.

    My specs are more than adequate to run this. When Rotoscoping my memory will run at about 60%

    I have removed the new versions and are now Build 41, Version 18.4

    No features should be added until this is fixed. It is now unusable.
    My specs:
    Windows 10
    11th Gen Intel @3.60Ghz
    16 GB Ram
    58 GB Virtual Memory
    SSD 1 TB (130 GB free)
    HD 2 TB (Free 1.7 GB)

  15. Allow relocate columns in AE interface

    Columns like 'layer/name' and 'keys' should be on the right side, close to the timeline. It makes more sense if you consider how our eyes moves when editing properties:

    1) start it on keyframes
    2) go to identify the layer/name
    3) go for pig tail, alpha etc.

    ...start, left, back to right. you go back and forward....

    But if layer/names would be on the right, it will be start, left, left.

  16. GPU render engine keeps turning off to software only

    I have a 3080ti and AE will see and use it just fine. Problem is AE will continue to revert to software only in the project settings and the little rocket icon will go grey until I switch it on again. This problem has been happening for the last handful of releases. Currently on 18.4.0

  17. Color Management choppy playback

    I recently found what I can only describe as a bug in the Color Management workflow. I have a Blackmagic Intensity Extreme and it plays back to a JVC broadcast monitor. I am running AE on a Mac Pro dustbin.

    I had a project that involved lots of gradients that were banding terribly so using a combination of HLS Noise and Renoiser I was able to get a passable solution. However when I played the timeline back in full resolution the playback although smooth on the computer monitor was choppy on the second JVC one. Reducing to Half res solved…

  18. What kind of expressions let project slow?

    Hello guys!
    I know some expressions let the project in AE or Premiere Pro (mogrt) slow. Searching on internet I've found expressions like valueAtTime, sourceRectAtTime or those who eval layer index. Well, I know too that code like "if else" statament let code slow as well. I would like to know if is that all true and if possible, to know what kind of code/expressions would be interesting to avoid in order to keep MOGRT or even after effects projects better in performance. Thanks in advance!

  19. AE 18.4 hangs for ~1 minute on launch

    When launching AE 18.4, I get spinning pinwheel just before the initial window opens up to select recent projects. This lasts for ~1 minute and then goes back to normal.

    I reverted to 18.2.1 and problem has disappeared.

  20. RAM Playback is still slow on 4K GUI

    Hi,

    I have noticed there are several bug reports regarding the unsufficient RAM playback on 4K GUI, e.g. https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911311-after-effects/suggestions/36926725-ram-preview-plays-back-slow-on-4k-monitor-unless-i

    This is still definitely an issue on the latest AE 2021 18.4.0, on Windows 10 64-bit, UHD 620 integrated GPU.

    RAM playback seriously frame drops on 4K full screen > drop AE to the corner to resize the complete AE UI to 1920 x 1080 > RAM playback is realtime again!

    Please improve this.
