  1. Bring back AE 15.0.1 and ME 12.0.1

    By introducing AE16 Adobe has also removed the last working versions of AE and ME from the list of older versions in the CC installer.
    By last working we are talking about native QT export in industry codecs like prores, hap or any other professional QTbased codec.

    This means: If You got lured into installing AE16 by the news the missing QT features where fixed by bringing back at least HAP then You just destroyed Your production workflow. Because now there's no way of safely going back to AE15.0.1

    This is an unacceptable step and severe problem for most of…

  3. Curves and Levels - allow user to adjust Lab curves instead of only RGB

    Curves and levels allows you to adjust RGB channels, which can be destructive to colors if you just want to adjust the lightness

    Allow user to change the curves/levels mode to Lab color mode and offer those channels as an alternative to RGB

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    This is a known problem that we are investigating for a future update to After Effects. The problem happens when you migrate preferences from an earlier version of After Effects.

    If you reset the preferences for After Effects (hold Command/Ctrl + Alt/Option + Shift during application startup), this problem will go away.

  8. Automatically import export from AE to Premiere Pro

    When rendering something out of AE using the Render Que, have option to automatically import into Premiere Pro. I do not use dynamic link for various reasons, one being how slow and unstable it is.

  9. Bug report - Improper timecode syncing in AE v 16.0.0

    Upon importing mxf footage provided by my client, I've found that timecodes shown in v 16.0.0 does not sync properly. The client handed me a document with a short list of ins and outs they wanted me to trim the file to and export separate treated clips.

    Sometimes the timecode was off by up to 130 frames.

    I ended up using premiere to export out the trimmed clips, then import that premiere project into after effects to keep the trim points where they should be, and sure enough, AE was showing completely wrong timecode for the properly edited shots.

    Ultimately…

  10. Camera-Shake Deblur effect accelerated by GPU

    This effect is really useful, but it goes so slow. You should accelerate it by GPU, It would be awesome.

    TKS Adobe ;)

  11. Alt-Click Value To Set Expression

    Similar to clicking the stopwatch to open up expression panel, Alt Click A value of a property to open up the expression panel but only need to set the value of the alt-clicked expression:

    Example:
    Alt clicking y-value in position would lead to the following expression added automatically:

    [transform.position[0], ]

    and now you just have to fill in the y expression (time-saving)

  12. AE/PP UI Appearance Adjustment Options For People With Vision Disabilities

    Currently there aren't adjustment options for UI appearance in AE and PP. This will be extremely beneficial for people with vision impairment disabilities. The apps that do not have these options are AE and PP. It is very unfortunate that a company that is so customer oriented does not give options for those with disabilities in all of their apps. Customer supports advice was "change your screen resolution." There needs to be a better solution than that.

  13. Bug report: cc cylinder behaves differently in 2019 from 2018

    I've animated a mask to make an arrow appear around an object.
    In cc 2018 it works fine, but in cc 2019 the radius is affected by the mask, but ONLY when using Normal blending mode.
    Weird and unexpected behavior.

  14. Allow any effect attribute to be driven by a matte layer

    have a small button next to every value for every effect attribute to allow you to map it to a layer matte.

    This allows you to control effects exactly without cluttering up your layers window

  15. AECC2018 on Mac has a problem about mp4& MOV

    AECC2018 on Mac has a problem about the 60fps mp4 & MOV.
    When I imported the 4 60fps mp4 files to new 30fps composition, AE preview screen caused the missing frame (or replace different frame) and insert the green or red screen that I don't add.

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    Can you please post a sample MP4 or MOV that causes this problem? We will need a sample in order to investigate.

    What camera shot this footage? Does this footage use variable frame rate (VFR)?

    You can determine if an MP4 file uses VFR by doing the following:
    1. Select the footage in the Project panel.
    2. In the File menu, choose Interpret Footage > Main.
    3. Click the More Options button at the bottom of the Interpret Footage dialog.

    In this dialog, if the Variable Frame Rate Mode can be changed, then your footage uses VFR. Try changing the VFR mode to Smooth Video Motion, which will preserve the frame rate of the video, but potentially lose audio sync.

    Either way, please let us know if your footage uses VFR.

  16. CC Twister - Shading Problem

    In the 2018 version of After Effects, having the shading checkbox checked in the CC Twister effect panel worked as expected. After upgrading to 2019 After Effects, having the shading checkbox checked caused the element to blow way up and once the twist had completed, the location had shifted on the screen as well. The element using the CC Twister Effect is an imported Illustrator asset. By unchecking the shading checkbox, all went back to normal. Any ideas why?

  17. BUG REPORT: Switching to user defined layout

    Problem: Crashing related to user defined layout. May be related to palette / Script UI panel; XML file attached.

    Methodology:
    1) Moved all files at directory

            C:\Users\myUser\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects\16.0

    to another location, I.E. "Desktop / TEMP".

    2) Start AE. If no crash, add one file from "TEMP" back to "16.0"

    3) Repeated until files originally in

            C:\Users\myUser\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects\16.0\ModifiedWorkspaces
    
    were added back to the folder and found that AE crashed when activating the layout found in the attached XML. Other user defined layouts were tested as a precaution; none caused AE to crash.

  18. Merge Grouped Shapes sent from XD

    The new ability to send assets from XD to AE is amazing and helps a lot (especially for prepping disorganized Illustrator files).

    It would be great to merge paths that are at the bottom of a group. Or at least having the option to toggle it. My layers are nice and grouped in XD, but I don't want each path to be it's own layer in AE.

  20. Bug report: Text layer grouping alignment reverts to 0%

    When duplicating a text layer, the grouping alignment reverts to defaults (0%) on the new layer. A duplicated layer should retain all of the properties of the original.
