  2. BUG Can't delete items in render queue - I mean come on, test first, release later, please

    Can't delete items in render queue.

    Can't do anything while rendering previews of linked files in Premiere or AME

    After effects crashes if premiere rendering previews.

    It is a s*** show isn't it? And you released it on us.
    Thanks

  3. crashes

    My After Effects (version 17.1.1.build 34) crashes because my OS (macOS Catalina version 10.15.5) is in English while all my adobe applications are installed in Simplified Chinese.

    This issue only happens to After Effects. My other adobe applications works fine.

  4. Universal Search

    Universal search for all commands, effects, tools, windows.
    Like Cinema 4D. Shortcut to open a search anywhere on screen. Results show their hierarchy and shortcut key. You can double click to execute. All searchables are indexed and cached so results are immediate.

  5. using after effects when Premiere is rendering linked comps!

    So if Premiere is rendering linked Comps there is no display in After Effects at all. That is not useful, especially as it takes so long if continuous rasterisation is on. Needs to be using a background process. You remember them, from 2014 when the program worked. Assume it is a dynamic link thing and it has to use that thread but it needs to work so you can still work

  7. Launching Lightroom resets shared media cache location for Pr, Ae, Au and Me

    Hi,
    By simply launching the latest Lightroom Classic (9.3), it will set the shared media caches locations for Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition and Media Encoder to the default Lightroom video cache location.

    /Users/{USERNAME}/Library/Caches/Adobe/Lightroom/Video

    Even though Lightroom's own media cache location might be custom set to something else.

    Running the latest app versions available on MacOS Catalina 10.15.5

    Does this also mean that the rather small cache size limitations usually set in lightroom now apply to the video editing apps shared cache too? Will Lightroom also delete cache files from Pr, Ae, Au, Me ?

    This bug has been reported…

  9. After Effects doesn't RAM preview after monitors have been turned off.

    I'm having an issue whereby After Effects doesn't play or RAM preview after monitors have been turned off then turned back on again (e.g., if I leave my PC over lunch with the monitors turned off). I have to restart AE to be able to play the timeline again.

    It's a simple problem but MAN is it annoying when it happens every day.

  11. Timeline sluggish when waveform is visible.

    When waveform is visible scrolling the timeline is choppy and sluggish. I would rather Adobe prioritise performance over new features. Far more people use audio waveforms for pacing than content aware fill. Make AE run fast and stable, please.

  12. Render Push Notifications via Mobile Device

    Rendering is a part of the experience we all just sit around waiting for. We want to be able to take a nap or go get some food without worrying my render has failed or that my computer is just sitting there when I have deadlines.

    Introduce a function via Adobe CC perhaps that would allow you to track and notify you about the completion of renders in After Effects, Premiere or Media Encoder.

    Here is a concept video designed to give you some ideas: https://youtu.be/G9kQEchDun0

  13. After Effects doesn't allow me to click on other screens

    Often, when I'm working in After Effects, I'll try to click on a different window outside of the program and won't be able to. It won't allow me to click anywhere but in After Effects until I hit Ctrl+Alt+Del

  14. OCIO ACES highlights corrupt. OCIO ACES need to built-in!

    While i am testing result with OCIO ACES (workspace None, no signs on linear and blend gamma 1.0) i figured that some blend modes such as screen provides similar results but highlight is corrupted. I hope you add built-in support of OCIO

  16. SWF playback and render speed improvement

    Playing and rendering SWF files is super slow and it should match the performance of that of shape, vector and video file footage playback when played as apart of a composition's timeline. Even matching/relative speed as Animate's sluggish timeline playback would be of benefit.

    This has been tested with continuous rasterising on and off at resolutions between 1080p and 4k. No effects were applied. Also tried both software and hardware rendering (already known lack of support).

    I can check that "optimise for After Effects" button all I want, it doesn't fix the playback speed issue. I just feel that Animate>AE…
