  4. F9 no longer cycling through ease

    After updating to 22.5.0 F9 no longer cycles through easing. It will work initially in setting "easy ease". But pressing it again no longer cycles to "rove across time" or no ease. This means there is no way to turn off the ease unless I use the graph editor. I've always been able to do this until the update. Please fix this bug.

  6. AE 22.4.0 is horrendously slow

    Sorry, I'm not sure what else to say about this other then AE 22.4.0 is EXTREMELY slow in performance all round. I mean the timeline takes forever to cache and render just a single frame for the viewport.

    I rolled back to 22.0 and the speed difference is chalk and cheese. 22.0 is an order of magnitude faster.

  7. FIX TEXT on AE 22.4.0 (Build 56) on MAC 12.4

    I think there is a problem with text using After Effects 22.4.0 (Build 56)
    I don't know why but when you type a text and hit the enter key to go to a new line, the last character goes to the other side of the sentence.

    I've changed font, compostion, I cleaned cache file, restart the program but nothing change.

  8. After Effects v22.3.0 DNxHD Alpha render broken - still not working correctly.

    On April 22 I posted that "When rendering to DNxHD on 22.2.0 with an alpha channel, under format the options are None or Uncompressed. Both options work. On the latest release, the options are None or Compressed, if you choose compressed, no alpha channel is created, making it useless for creating titles for Avid. This needs to be3 fixed immediately."

    Tom N responded and asked for me to upload some example files. Unfortunately, due to be very busy, before I got a chance to do that, the issue was marked resolved. DNxHD renders out of AE with an alpha channel…

    Thank you for filing this bug.


    I made a quick attempt to reproduce this problem but could not.


    Could you please provide us with more info:

    • The exact version of After Effects that you're using, from the About After Effects dialog. (Ex., the current public release is 22.4.0 build 56.)
    • The OS and version you're using.
    • A project file that demonstrates the problem OR a specific set of steps that I can follow that causes the problem.
  10. Bug on boot

    After Effects is slowly becoming a nightmare to use. I now have to reinstall it after every restart on my Mac as all the plugins become unresponsive. I've tried cleaning Adobe completely but it does the same thing every time I restart.

  11. *Critical* All Expressions get same error

    Every single Expressions I apply throws the error
    "add() needs exactly two arguments"

    This is making all work with expressions impossible in 22.4.0
    Will try downgrading...

    EDIT:
    Downgrading to 22.3 fixed this instantly.

    Thanks for filing this. Could you please try the latest release of After Effects? The most recent release from last week was After Effects 22.4.


    In the past few months there were some bugs where workspaces would not save correctly when restarting After Effects. Apologies for the disruption As of 22.4, all the bugs around this issue that we're aware of have been fixed.


    If you're still experiencing a problem, please reply here with more detail so we can investigate. We will need to know:

    1. What exact version of After Effects you're using.
    2. What OS you're using.
    3. Any error messages you're receiving.
    4. A description of the behavior. i.e., The steps that you take so we can follow and determine where the problem is.
    5. Screenshots or screen recordings are super helpful for error messages or before/after states.

  14. open multiple comps from render queue again PLEASE!

    Selecting more than one comp in the render queue and double clicking no longer opens all the Comps, just one.
    Please ensure this is fixed soon.
    I assume this is a bug, like the Effects panel no longer opening when you double click a layer, and that you will be reinstating some of this basic functionality in the next point updates

  15. AE 2022 V22.3.0 does not update layer in composition viewport when transform parameters are changed

    In the latest and greatest AE 2022 22.3.0, when I change a layer's Transform parameters, like adjusting rotation for example, the layer does not visually update per the change in view in the Composition viewer. This happens frequently and on a M1 Max MacBook Pro 16" with the latest macOS.

  16. AE frequently resets preferences upon opening

    Ever since the release of AE 22.2, it happens quite frequently to me that AE resets all preferences upon opening it. Maybe something like every fourth or fifth time of opening it (but the frequency seems to vary). Other times, I just get an error message that some preference file contains an expected value (but I don't think it resets all preferences, though).

    Is this a known bug? Can I do something about it? There are so many preferences I have to add back every time that I can't really work in these AE versions.

    Thank you for filing this request.


    Could you elaborate on how you would like to create a mask or alpha channel from shape layers?


    Using a shape as a mask or an alpha channel is already possible in AE. There are several possible methods, and I'll outline some of them below, but please let us know what you'd like to see that is different.


    Method 1: Copy a Beizer shape path to a mask path

    1. This only works with Bezier shape paths. If you create a parametric shape path (rectangle, ellipse, star, etc.), right click on the path (e.g. Rectangle Path 1) and choose Convert to Bezier Path.
    2. Twirl open the shape's Path group (e.g. Path 1) and select the Path property.
    3. Edit > Copy or Cmd/CTRL + C
    4. Select the layer you want to add a new mask to, and draw a new mask on it. It doesn't matter…
  19. Bug Report: line spacing weird behaviour / broken in AE 22.2.1

    The Line Spacing option from the text tool seems to be broken.It feels a bit like some value is added internally: e.g. spacing value "0" no longer results in several lines of text being on the very same baseline, but instead, it gives me something that I would expect from [value line spacing] = [value font size].

    Setting line spacing to "auto" leads to too much spacing, too, especially when using smaller font sizes.

    I first noticed this bug earlier this week, maybe last week. Should be around the time of the latest AE update, so I think this specifically…
