  5. Motion blur causes fatal shutdown of whole computersystem when using Open GL or footage is XAVC-S

    After a few crashes I thought this shocking error was caused by an overheated GPU, but sadly its a bug from after effects. I changed the GPU acceleration from Open-GL to metal and transcoded the footage from XAVC-S to ProRes. I don't know exactly which of both of thes steps solved the problem, but now everything is fine. I don't want to risk another complete sudden shutdown so I won't test this topic further and use the workaround. Got a Mac Pro 2010 with Xeon 6 Core 3,4Ghz, 24GB RAM and a GTX 1080 so XAVC-S should not be a…

  6. On screen master properties and mogrt UI elements.

    Add the ability to change master properties and mogrts on screen just like any other thing. Maybe change the colors of the widgets to make sure you know they are templated elements? So if there is an element you can change the position of, add a target to the position point. Or if there is text you can change, add a widget next to that text that makes it so you can select the text in-line and change it there. Maybe that way you could even format the text of a template without having to complete change the text engine.

  7. Falloffs for any effects

    It would be a great improvement if we could define falloffs for any effects on any layers, as it is usual in 3D software such as Cinema 4D. I would like to define easily (animated) areas where effects occur or animations will take place without copying layers and work with masks. This would be a very powerful system.

  8. AME encoding all Comps of Ae project instead of main comp when I drop the Project in AME Watch Folder

    I have many pre-comps in Ae project. When I drop the Project inside AME watch folder, it starts encoding main comps as well as pre-comps. I found a thread for this problem but that is also not working. Here is the link of that thread.

  9. Duplicated Render Queue Item on User Stopped to Retain Original In / Out Points

    I suggest changing the behavior of how the render queue item duplicates on a failed render.

    Currently, when you stop a render, and it duplicates the job in the render queue, the starting point is defined as the frame it was quit on which is pretty much never the case when user stopped.

    I believe a better behavior would be:

    if user stopped = duplicate render job and keep in / out points

    BUT

    if render fail = continue from last successful frame

  11. Bug: Importing 23.97 footage with Speed/Duration from Premiere causes error

    Importing a Premiere sequence containing a 23.97fps MP4 clip which has Speed/Duration changes or has been Rate Stretched throws the attached errors.

    I could not reproduce with 29.97 ProRes footage, so this may be specific to certain framerates. The Premiere sequence was 29.97, and I also got the error while trying to copy/paste the clip to a 29.97 After Effects comp.

    Expected behavior: Translate Speed/Duration to the equivalent After Effects concept (Time Remapping?) transparently.

    Actual behavior: Sequence import is interrupted, unclear warnings on which clip(s) need attention.

  12. Team Projects in AE crashes every time you try and copy a PSD from one composition to another

    I'm trying out team projects for the first time with 2 other animators. I created a master team project file that they are trying to incorporate their existing AEP files into. Each animator imported their old AEP files into the team project. They need to copy layers from their imported comps and paste them into compositions that I made in the team project. Every single time they hit command C to copy the layers from their imported projects, AE crashes and shuts down completely without warning. This was reproducible on different computers on different Adobe accounts. It also happened on…

  13. Disable online features and Sign-In / Sign out option in Adobe Effects CC

    Since we have the enterprise licensing agreement in place and we use enterprise license key to extract installer, we don't want users of our Desktop environment to use personal Adobe ID to Sign In to Adobe CC products.

    Thus, we want to disable the sign-in option which is under Help drop-down as per above screenshot (Animate CC 2018).

    We would like to have similar functionality to disable the online features and Sign out option in Effects CC which is currently available in Acrobat Standard and Acrobat Pro.

  15. Import function library jsx automatically

    The ability to import a jsx file with a library of expressions is a great feature. I think it could be improved if there was a file somewhere in the Adobe preferences folder called something like UserFunctions.jsx, which is automatically imported into the After Effects namespace. This would allow users to edit this file and be able to access these functions without needing to manually import the jsx for each project. So if the UserFunctions.jsx contains a function called overshoot(foo, bar) for example, the user can just type overshoot(3, 1) into any expression and it will work. Maybe for safety…

  16. Getting Auto Save errors in After Effects

    At our company, we share After Effects files on a NAS system (a QNAP ts-1635). We are running 2013 Mac Pros with El Capitan OS 10.11.6. We constantly get an error that says, "After Effects error: error reading from file [filename] (3 :: 6). Then it creates 0 kb autosaves. I've attached screenshots of what's happening. Any ideas on what's going on or how it can be fixed?

    Thank you!

  18. EPS Antialiasing Preferences

    I build most of the graphics for my animations in AI, then import into AE. A lot of the graphics I create are complex and/or rely on gradients. Once they're in AE they look low res and choppy.

    Currently, the only solution is to select each individual layer in the Project Panel, click "Interpret Footage," select more options, eps options, antialiasing, then "More Accurate." Not the end of the world, but annoying.

    I'd like to request an option to make this easier and quicker to do en masse. Preferably an option within the preferences panel referring to EPS antialiasing. Or…

  20. Shortcut: trim layer to work area time / set in and out time of layer to in and out time of work area.

    I spend so much time using the bracket keys to trim layers and most of the time I'm trimming to the work area boundaries. There should be a shortcut that does this automatically. When you duplicate a layer from another time or drop a new layer in a comp, just press a shortcut key to trim it to the work area. Simple but will save so much time manually trimming layers to the work area.
