  4. Fix illustrator/after effects clipboard autosave bug

    After effects have had this problem forever. If you have something copied to your clipboard from illustrator ( path, shape, anything, right click > copy ) and you go to your After effects window and AE starts autosave, after effects will crash. Sometimes it manages to show error message, most of the time not. You'll lose any changes you've made.
    Adobe programs should work together smoothly, would make more sense if you can copy paste shapes straight from illustrator to after effects without any reroutes.
    It's called Auto Save not Auto Destroyer :D!

  8. Please fix the 3rd party font bug in the latest update!

    PLEASE fix the bug that does not recognize third party fonts and forces you to manually update every single text layer to the correct font. It's an issue in the latest versions of After Effects and Premiere and in typography-heavy projects, this has been an absolute nightmare that is costing our team hours of work.

  14. Advanced Puppet Pin Reordering Bug

    CC2018 (15.1.0-build166) / MacOS 10.12.6

    I am not able to change order of advanced puppet pins after pin position has been modified. Doing so kills preview and breaks mesh. If I revert back to original order, preview is restored and mesh works again.

    I'm able to recreate this problem on multiple machines.


    1. Apply puppet mesh to layer

    2. Add 2+ pins to mesh

    3. Adjust position of pins

    4. Change order of Puppet Pins

    5. Move layer position (not sure if this is necessary)

    6. Adjust position of pins

    Sometime works for a few seconds after, but eventually preview will fail. revealing mesh will show…

  16. BUG: Crashes on start up

    When I start up After Effects 15.1.1 it crashes immediately on my Mac.

    There's no way to get around it. I have removed all the CC with the Cleaner and reinstalled and it still does it.

  17. Intermittent crash applying Particular or Form, with AE attempting to open dialog within drawRect

    We are seeing an intermittent (~1 out of 10 times) crash in our latest releases of Particular (v3.1.1) and Form (v3.1.1) in Trapcode Suite 14.1.1. Crash log and sample project attached.

    The crash does not appear to occur in our own code. As indicated in the crash log, it appears that AE is attempting to open a dialog from within a drawRect operation.

    We would appreciate any clues as to what our plugin might be doing in its own initialization that might lead AE to post some warning or error dialog from within a draw operation.

    OSX 10.13, AE CC2018…

  20. Constant AE and Premiere crashes after April updates

    Since the April updates to AE and Premiere, both programs crash constantly. Premiere always crashes when I try and drag an ae element into a folder within the project pane. AE crashes every time I open any of the linked AE files that I use in Premiere. I have been forced to install previous versions of each program, which fixed all issues.
