  1. Master Property Undo and Copy Expression Bug

    If you replace a comp that has a master property with an expression or keys on it, it gets cleared out. That makes sense. But if you undo, expressions and keys on a mastery property don't return.

    Also, the UI lets you "Copy Expression Only" for Master Properties but you can't paste onto duplicates, even of the same precomp with the exact same Master Properties.

    Aside from a few minor issues, I love the world Master Properties opens up for us.

  2. Crash-related CRLOGS-Files fill up OS-drive

    The latest AE Version is dumping huuuuge CRLOG-Files on the OS-Harddrive after crashing (which as everybody knows happens quite a lot).

    The Files can reach 20-35gb each. These files are meant for UPLOAD and this is unacceptable.This concerns workflow AND data-privacy. ADOBE just wanted to upload 120gb of my data to their servers from my workstation. This is NOT acceptable.

    WHAT ARE YOU UPLOADING THERE ? This is way more than just Crashlogs !!!

    And this is blocking my OS, my upload-feed and slows my system down.

    This is a perpetuum mobile of ****: AE crashes all the time, then…

    Thank you for filing this bug report. We are investigating the problem.

    You can safely delete the CRLOG files from your system. These are crash log files that are supposed to be automatically deleted.

    You can change your Adobe crash report preferences from within any Adobe application by choosing Help > Adobe Crash Reporter.

    Edit: Can we contact you for more information, via the email address you used when you filed this report? Thanks.

  3. Stroke and Cinema 4D render

    When a stroke is applied to a shape on a 3D layer and the Cinema 4D renderer is selected, when trim paths is used the width of the stroke changes. When the Classic 3D renderer is used, this does not happen.

    Thanks for filing this bug report, and for sending us the project file.

    Our engineers are examining the problem. Regarding the project you sent, they gave this feedback:

    This problem is independent of using Trim Paths.

    The problem can occur with shapes or text converted to Shapes, as in the provided project. With the CINEMA 4D renderer the Shape stroke width does not match the Classic 3D renderer – there is both a stroke symmetry shift around the path, and size can vary as well.

    The stroke mismatch is typically quite small. However, the provided project has Transform > Scale set to over 300%, thereby exaggerating the problem.

    To work around this you could avoid using a large scale value on the shape layer. Adding scale per shape path almost eliminates the problem visually, but is impractical to do for each shape.

    Another workaround could be to maybe prep the…

    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.

  6. Ellipse Path Closing with Trim Paths

    There seems to be a bug when working with parametric ellipse paths in tandem with trim paths.

    It only seems to occur when the Start or End properties in the trim path are set to 50%, while the other is set to 0%. I've attached a couple videos for reference.

    When the ellipse path position is adjusted the ellipse path will occasionally close itself, resulting in an unwanted half-circle. The half circle is a result of the Start property set to 0%, and the End property set to 50%. However, when the values are swapped (Start: 50%, End: 0%) it…

  7. 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…

  8. Bug Report - Broken text animator on 3d-text layers

    Text gets cut off along the top of the text box boundary when animating in from the Y-Axis -- only when the text layer is 3D. Seems to be a new bug with the latest AE update. Would appreciate it if you guys could check that out. Thanks!

  9. 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…

  10. Invalid JSON Object Error

    Error/Bug Report: When importing a tab delimited file, any quotation marks in data values results in this After Effects alert:

    After Effects warning: Problem encountered with file "FILENAME.tsv". Data File: Parsing error:"dataOutline[0]::children[0]", Invalid JSON Object.

    When I remove the quotation marks from the text/tsv file, After Effects handles it properly.

    Any workarounds for this so I can use data with text values including quotations? Thanks!

  11. Opacity not working in Master Properties

    I have a pre-comp that has 2 layers in it. One graphic, the other text. I use OPACITY from both layers as a means to control in the MAIN layer as a Master Property. However, when I attempt to change the OPACITY from the MASTER PROPERTY it does not work, respectively

  12. make median and dust and scratches faster in 16bpc

    Median is a very conveniant effect when it comes to removal or retouching works and super fast when your project is set to 8bpc but when you turn it to 16bpc or more it takes forever to render. I would be really thankful if you could do some dev blackmagic to fix that
