  1. After Effects 2021 error Can't import seq from server

    After Effects 2021 can't import image sequence from server. It's ok to import same seq from local drive. And it was all fine with AE2019.

    Coping files to my local drive from server changes something for ae it just recognizes that seq now in server but just for some time after that its invisible for ae again.

    More permanend workaround is copy to my local and then copy back to server and replace.
    It seems that only older folder including seq files dont work. It can import newly greated seq files.

    And when I drag seq folder in AE it…

  3. Hindi, Thai, Arabic, Urdu and others do not work

    Across all Adobe products these languages do not type correctly and more immortally don't copy and paste over correctly. Even changing the settings to South Asian and switching the direction of the type doesn't work. Someone created an AE script that works pretty well for Arabic reversing the type, but it doesn't work for Urdu. Thai and Hindi render certain characters incorrectly. Like for Thai is squishes down certain accent marks that should be spaced out. It could be a font thing, but the Adobe Thai font works well when using .srt files in Premiere Pro. but only from SRT…

  4. Trouble with Dynamic Link

    I am teaching an advanced motion graphics class this term and about 20-25% of my students are unable to get Cinema 4D Lite running. After Effects is throwing variants of the 5027 error, and it is happening on both Mac and PC. There are also differences in OS version, graphics cards and other hardware among the students experiencing this. It makes it very hard to troubleshoot. I have noticed a lot of problems with the Dynamic link this term that we did not experience in the fall. Media Encoder has had issues too. Please revisit this system before the next…

  5. Adobe 2021 User Presets Issue

    The User Presets folder is still "Documents\Adobe\After Effects 2020\User Presets" on AE 2021. This breaks scripts that set variables for the User Preset folder's location based on the software version u're on, like Aescript's "Quick Menu" or Video Copilot's "FX Console," to name a few I'm familiar with. It may seem trivial, but little inconveniences like this slow down people's workflows, and they add up over time. Please fix this!

  7. [Request] Make 3D Rotation go beyond 1x

    To create a big rotational animation, rotating the 3D layer should go beyond 1x360. Like e.g. in Cinema 4D. Is it a bug that it's not working?

  8. Collapse Transformations + Adjustment Layer bug

    Posterize Time is on an adjustment layer in Comp 1. When Comp 1 is added to Comp 2 and "Collapse Transformations" is applied, all layers inside Comp 1 are repositioned relative to Comp 2's resolution.

    Looks like a layer space transform bug.

  10. When I quit one AE project and open another it regularly crashes, and I need to force quit it before opening again

  14. Desizing enlarged panel crashes computer sometimes

    This has happened on multiple different projects on my computer. If I hit the tilde key to enlarge a window to full screen and watch my comp for a bit, I've had a bug crash not just AE but my entire computer when I hit tilde key again to exit the full screen. The video panel will distort mid-resizing and I'll get the spinning wheel of death for a few seconds, then that disappears and my computer is completely frozen and I have to do a hard reboot.

    There isn't really any warning that it might happen such as AE…

  15. Allow gaps in paths (and open a world of possibilities (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ )

    Hey. My name is Saar and I created shpr for After Effects:
    https://www.goodboy.ninja/shpr

    During the process, I found out that the possibilities of what can be done with the createPath functions are vast and this tool really opens a lot of possibilities for paths.

    In the future, I would love to see the option for having gaps in a path.

    1: WHY:
    ⚫ It will open a whole new world of possibilities by enabling an efficient way to draw strokes on screen without having to create multiple path objects, which is cluttery and harder to maintain.

    ⚫ You would be…

  16. After Effects is always in the foreground after any work step is made

    After any work step like saving or opening a project is done, AE opens itself again, even if I'm tabbed out into another window .

    I should be able to decide if AE can put itself into the foreground or not.

  17. A bug in After Effects with importing ProRes 4444 files with alpha

    After Effects is not correctly interpreting the alpha Chanel of ProRes 4444 files - if there is an alpha fade in the imported 4444 video, a black shadow can be seen under the fade - this is the same whether premultiplied is selected or not. I have loaded the same files into Motion and Millumin and they work correctly. See the attached still - the text should be fading from transparent to white but is showing as transparent black during the fade.

  18. add a compatibility notice at the head/an alert box of EVERY update

    just gone through an incident where AME 14.5 stopped responding when using "add to AME queue" from AE 17.5.0. i saw there was an upgrade available, to AME14.9, so i went ahead. support agent Abhishek advised me that AME14.9 requires AE 17.7 to be compatible. i feel that there should be some immediate alert telling customers "DO NOT UPDATE XX UNLESS YOU HAVE YY VERSION OF BLAH".

    btw, Abhishek was super helpful in getting AME rolled back and up and working again, as was Sameer on saturday. unfortunately, that was only a temporary fix

  20. Pixel-Perfect Art

    After effects is a fantastic tool for animation, and it has nearly everything you need to succeed, but it leaves me wanting more when it comes to smaller canvas sizes. I'll expand on what I mean. To achieve crisp pixels in after effects, one has to set their layers to draft mode and deal with subpixel sampling. Shapes within After Effects don't exist as pixels but as vector art interpreted as pixels. For example, if you position a pixel at an X or Y coordinate with a decimal point, like "200.5", the program will do its best to render a…
