  1. Bug Report: Motion Templates Not Displaying in Premiere Correctly

    Hey guys,

    I'm experiencing an issue with a .mogrt I'm working on. It's a block of text that appears from off-screen. I've written expressions to show/hide text and background layers based on how many lines of text the user inputs.

    Everything's working great in After Effects but as soon as I pull it across to Premiere, it doesn't display correctly. I feel like this must be something to do with the text box input in Premiere. Is it possible it's inserting a space somewhere? I've checked each blank box but they're definitely empty…

    Can you shed any light on this?

  2. Allow L*a*b* -values in Color Picker

    Hi,

    Photoshop has an excellent color picker that allows user to input Lab*-values and then converts those values to a corresponding RGB-values based on the color profile that's loaded into your working space. Similar functionality would be great addition to After Effects and extremely useful when dealing with brand colors.

  6. BUG REPORT: No video shows and moving UI shows visual glitch where video should be.

    I'm on an Alienware 15 r4 windows 10 Home version 1709 OS build 16299.431 all video and other drives updated.

    I'm on the latest version of After Effects CC 2018.

    When I open a project no video or images show in the video panel, just the 'open project / create project' UI buttons and if I move the ui panels around I get the visual tearing glitch you can see in the attached. I have uninstalled and reinstalled AE as well as uninstalled and installed older versions and continue to have this issue. I don't have this issue on other…

  7. Missing percentage/frame counter in VR Comp Editor when Tracking

    When tracking a 360 shot using the VR Compe Editor and 3D Edit i no longer have the percentage/frame counter telling me progress of the track. The tracker then starts solving the track but never finishes just sticks on the yellow solving bar.

  8. Global Adaptive Resolution Setting

    Add a global setting or button for Fast Previews/Adaptive Resolution. That way users can turn it off globally for an entire project. Currently there is no way to do this except to go in each composition and set fast previews to 'Off (Final Quality)'.

    Also, this might be a bug, because for some reason, at a certain moment, this has been turned on and now it is turned on every composition or project I open resulting in a very pixelated preview.

  10. Keyframes anchored to layer length

    I'd love to be able to anchor keyframes to the beginning/end of a layer. Obviously it's essential that keyframes anchor in their location relative to the beginning/end, so some will be dead on, but others will be ±12 frames from the beginning/end.

    Bonus points if this can dynamic link through Premiere so lower 3rds can have a dynamic out animation based on their duration in the sequence.

  11. Pin Project Template

    In our studio environment, we have a standard after effects template that gets loaded for every project. It would be nice to be able to pin a few project templates in the startup window along with recent files.

  13. Slow Color Management

    After Effects CC 2018 Color Management is still unusable.

    On a High-End Machine that is incredibly fast on any other software (Adobe or not) enabling color management can slow ram preview from 25fps to even 5/6fps. On a 1080p comp!
    This is something that should have been fixed a long time ago.
    It forces us to use other softwares to do high-end jobs.
    And we do not want to.

    Thanks

  14. Rotobezier / X-Spline Handles

    Add tension handles to rotobezier (x-splines) so they are easier to edit without a modifier key.

    Basically, just steal how MochaAEs X-splines work, they are great.

  16. Add DVX3 support to the AE output module and media encoder

    I know Resolume is working on it, but maybe you could give them some help to speed up the process.

  17. Add MPEG options to After Effects render engine

    I would like AE to be able to Export MPEGS. The list of options in AE is pretty small. I've been using those legacy QT codecs for the longest and with the depreciation of those I am left with file formats that are too big. Apple Pro res seems okay but its Mac only. I have to use AME to export videos as MPEG. However, AME has issues.

    For example,I have an issue with media encoder, where if I change an asset in AE like audio and even delete it from the project, AME still renders with the old audio.…

  18. Estamos com esse erro chato no After Effects CC 2018 - There was an error processing this PDF document

    Olá,

    Estou com esse problema e não consigo resolver de modo algum:

    After Effects error: There was an error processing this PDF document. (1074397201) ( 50 :: 29 )

    After Effects error: cannot reopen an open file. ( 3 :: 130 )

    Logo depois disso o After Effects trava e fecha. não salva nada, mas também não há nada para salvar pois eu não consigo mais fazer modificações no vídeo por causa disso.

    Se alguém puder me esclarecer algo que resolva meu problema, vejo que tem muitas pessoas com essa dificuldade mas sem uma solução concreta.

    Atenciosamente,

    Fernando Batista

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    What is the path to the file (or files) it is reporting the error about? Is it an Illustrator (.ai) file, or a PDF file?

    Did you create this project by previously using the Collect Files command?

    If you move the file (or files) causing the error to your desktop, open the project, and then re-link to the file on the desktop, does the problem go away?

    There is a potential bug that can occur if the path to Illustrator or PDF files is very long, after the project was created by the Collect Files command. Your answers to the questions above can help determine if this is the problem you have encountered.

    Em Portguese (Google Translate):

    Obrigado por preencher este relatório de bug.

    Qual é o caminho para o arquivo (ou arquivos) sobre o qual está relatando o erro? É um arquivo…
