  1. Master properties source text bug inputing "ç" letter

    I'm using the master property feature to create lower third comps. It is impossible to input in the word "Caçapava*". Anytime I type "ç" (cmd+C), the dialog box closes.

    Please, check the video below

    *in Portuguese we have many words with this letter

  2. "Look At All Layers" can't be assigned to shortcut

    For some reason you can't assign a shortcut to the "Look At All Layers" command in the "View" menu. Even though the Keyboard Shortcuts editor might have a shortcut saved and listed, it has no effect when pressing the shortcut later on.

    I can see that AE also doesn't list the shortcut next to the command in the actual menu, so for some reason the connection must be broken.

    This is a real nuisance, because this command is crucial for quickly navigating the 3D space such as in Blender or Cinema4D.

    Apparently this is a well-known bug. Could this be…

  3. Disabling Time Remapping should remove expressions applied to the property

    If you have an expression applied to Time Remapping (eg. loopOut), and you disable Time Remapping, you can get an expression error which is unresolvable since the property no longer exists. If we're removing the property itself, it makes more sense to a user to also remove any expressions.

  4. 기능 개선 요청

    프로젝트의 오디오 하드웨어 설정이 자꾸 멈춘다.
    즉, 미리보기 실행시 멈춰버리며, 이를 해결하기 위해 오디오 하드웨어를 매번 다시 설정하고 있다.
    작업중에 가장 많이 사용하는것이 audio hardware 이다.
    이것은 개선된 아이디어의 제안이 아니라, 문제해결을 요청하는 것이다.

  5. Fix expression editing within graph view

    In both AE 17.0.0 and 17.0.2, I did not test it in 17.0.1. Using Win10 with a Ryzen 3700x and a GTX 1060 6gb

    When editing or writing expressions while in the graph view mode, it is hit or miss whether or not the new code will be commited.

    It was suggested by another user to use the 'enter' key on the numpad to commit changes, but this didn't work every time either, so it doesn't solve the problem.

    When editing expressions in the normal layer view everything works and saves/updates as it should. You just type out the code…

  9. AE 2020 fixed ram preview for me... YAY! However, Numberpad "." no longer previews just the audio

    AE 2020 fixed ram preview for me... YAY! However, Numberpad "." no longer previews just the audio. If I hit the "." key, the play-head moves across the timeline, but there's no audio... and I don't see anything in the audio levels display either. If, however, if I enable video preview in the Numberpad "." preview, I get audio... AND video—which obviously defeats the purpose of an audio-only preview.

  10. Bug: AE and AME Tool Panel UI color after update 17.5 (Win10)

    After updating AE (and AME) to 17.5 (on 10/20) for Windows 10, the tab area on the Tools panel is white at startup. References attached.

    Turning the Tools panel on/off (Ctrl+1) or un-docking and re-docking the Tools panel will revert the tab area back to the intended color.

    On the subject of bright white UI elements, bright white is extremely abrasive and distracting, especially for users working in AE day-to-day for 8+ hrs.

    Please, please, adjust the AE UI on Windows 10 so that the Menu for AE, AME, and PR respect Darker brightness settings for appearance, or, adopt the…

    Thank you for filing this bug. We can confirm that this issue occurs. It has been fixed in the Beta builds of After Effects (17.5.1) and Adobe Media Encoder (14.5.1), and will be rolled into the public builds when those versions are released from beta. You can verify the fix now by installing After Effects Beta and Adobe Media Encoder Beta from the Creative Cloud desktop app.

  11. scroll through fonts with arrows (v17.0)

    In version 17.0 it seems like the ability to preview fonts with the arrows keys is, once again, broken. It's crazy how much this slows down a workflow. Can we get this fixed please?

  12. Bug - Roughen Edges doesn't work the same in 2020 as it does in previous versions

    In AE CC 2020, the Roughen Edges effect still shows the original edges of shapes and vectors. It also produces oddly colored edges.

    This wasn't the case before this version. It used to produce nice rough edges.

  13. Bug with .setPropertyParameters() for Dropdown Control

    This method seems to generate a "Duplicate item names are not allowed" error when using an array where an index is a substring of another index. This example specifically triggers it: ["HeadTop", "Head", "HeadBottom"]; will not be accepted by the method (the "Head" index seems to throw it off) - But: ["HeadTop", "HeadMiddle", "HeadBottom"] will be accepted.

  14. [BUG] Master Properties can't be changed with expression

    I put this simple expression on a master property that cycles through some items. It shows 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, etc. on the control, but it only shows the item #1.

    timeToFrames(time/50) % 3 + 1;

    This wasn't working on another master property, but it started to at some point on it's own. I've tried purging, recreating the property. About the only thing I haven't tried so far but sometimes works is recreating it all in a new comp.

  15. URGENT BUG - Effects on 3D shape layers don't show at all - 2020 17.0.2

    This is a crucial bug that needs to be fixed IMMEDIATELY!

    Any shape layer that's 3D doesn't show any effects. If 3D is disabled on the layer, the effects show.

    This is a crippling bug introduced in the latest update and it needs to be fixed ASAP!!!!

    I'm using a MacBook Pro 16 with AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB, and there appears to be a compatibility issue between AE and the graphics card. My composition window is completely distorted with horizontal lines running through it.

  17. String memory leak

    Error 83::2 - String Memory Leak
    I get this error message every time I log out of AE 2019 whilst using one particular project that involves a lot of imports. Will not open the files again later. I can work around it by importing the file into a new project, but once I save the NEW project, under a different name and go to quit the program, I get the same error message and rinse and repeat. I don't know which, if any, files are corrupt and the program otherwise acts normally until I try and close out the program.It…

  18. Bug - Opening projects that use 2020 drop-down menu expression controls (Pseudo dialog on startup)

    I love the new drop down expression control effect in AE2020. Unfortunately though I have a bug on opening the project file. I get a dialog box similar to the attached screen grab for each instance I've used the drop-down menu as a master property. The code in the dialog changes for each instance.

    For context, my project file features one precomp with a number of properties controlled by 3x dropdown menus on a control layer for colour, text option and positioning. That precomp is used in 5 other compositions, where using Master Properties I have used different drop down…
