  2. MAJOR BUG - Output Module Quicktime format options panel has blank settings

    In the export options, the quicktime options has blank settings with values input, but no way to know what those settings are. Critical bug.

  3. AE 22.4.0 Project Window Comp names cut-off last letter

    This morning I updated to AE 22.4.0. Now I'm noticing that in the project window, many of the names of compositions have the last letter in the name cutoff. But it only seems to happen when the length of the comp gets long enough. It doesn't seem to affect anything yet, but it's worth looking at.

  6. After Effects v22.3.0 DNxHD Alpha render broken.

    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.

  7. Bug Report: AE 22.2.1 Project considered corrupt in AE 22.3. Opens fine in 22.2.1

    I have an AE Project created in v22.2.1 that works fine in that version. If I update and try to open it in v22.3 I'm met with a message stating that the project is corrupt as I have too many cameras. If I rollback and open it in 22.2.1 the file is fine.

    Please help, I need to be able to update but also need to be able to work on this file.

    Hi all,

    This issue has been fixed in the 22.4 update of After Effects 2022, released today ( May 10, 2022 ). Please let us know if you continue to experience any issues opening projects after updating to After Effects 22.4.

    Thanks again for reporting this issue,

    - John, After Effects Engineering Team 

  8. Fix Chapter Markers in the Timeline panel - AE 2022 v22.3.0

    Shift+X (x = Numbers 1-6) does not create a marker in the Timeline panel as it should. Selecting 1-6 does not jump to existing markers as it should. This feature currently is only functional in v18.0 - which I am still using because of this. It's such an important feature to my workflow and process.

    Resetting Keyboard Shortcuts and specifically creating them again, with even different modifier keys, etc. does not resolve the issue.

    Help??

  9. Bug report: Scripting command to add comp marker with comment fails with CSelectron error

    in AE 22.2.0 (Mac), the scripting function comp.markerProperty.setValueAtTime() no longer works. It now results in the error CSelectronASSERT fail: CSelectron: layer is null

    I have a script with this function that has worked correctly in previous versions of after effects, but now results in this error. I have found no workaround.

  11. Bug report: Effects panel doesn't show up automatically when adding an effect

    — The Effects panel you normally find on the left and who might automatically open when applying an effect on a layer DOES NOT show up. You have to manually activate it via Windows in the menu bar.

  12. Mercury Transit Preview still crashes in latest AE V 22.0.1

    After Effects V 22.0.1 still crashes while using a 3rd preview monitor via Mercury Transit.

    My setups: Mac Pro trashcan (Late 2013) 12 core with 64GB and AMD FirePro D300, now running MacOS Monterey. I have 3 monitors- 2 4K Dell P2715Qs over mini Displayport and a JVC DT-v24L1 broadcast preview monitor over HDMI

    Also occurs on new 2021 Macbook Pro 16 running Monterey

    Repeatable crash: Preferences-> Video Preview -> Enable Mercury Transit ->Video Device: Adobe Monitor 2: 1920x1080

    In a project that has different sized comps, say 1920x1080 and 1080x1080, AE will crash when switching between comps of different…

  13. Bug Report - Fractal effect not working properly in AE 2022.

    The Fractal effect (not the Fractal Noise effect) is buggy in AE 2022. It works fine until I try adding another effect to the layer. For example, if I start a new project, create a new comp, add a new solid layer, and then add the Fractal effect to it, it looks fine. But if I add a Glow effect to the layer (after the Fractal effect) the effect disappears.

    Almost all other effects will have the same result when used with the Fractal effect, but the bug is inconsistent. So If you have trouble recreating the issue, try adjusting…

  14. Add a 'Go To File' button after each export in the Render Queue

    We need a pretty simple, and seemingly very obvious addition to the render queue:

    After each completed export in the render queue, please add a button that can take you immediately to the rendered file's location. I find it odd how this hasn't been included, and you can't even go straight to that file's location by right-clicking on the item in the queue.

    Also, would it be possible to add the ability to copy the folder location of one item in the queue, to the rest of the waiting, ready-to-go exports? Without having to manually click on each item and…

    The link to the output file is there, but a bit hidden — twirl down the Output Module section and you’ll see a blue file path. Click this link to open the file location.

    File > Scripts > Change Render Locations will let you change all the queued items in one go, or you can shift/cmd-click individual Output Modules to select multiple exports to change at once.

  17. AE 2022 fails to export to Media Encoder 2022

    Hello! Since upgrading my Adobe suite to the latest 2022 versions I haven't been able to export my files from After Effects to the Media Encoder. When I'm ready to render I'll go to "File > Export > Add to Adobe Media Encoder Queue..." as usual, but nothing actually shows up in Media Encoder's Queue. I've sat and waited long enough, staring at Media Encoder, mentally willing the file to go through the dynamic link that my boss started poking at me with a sharp stick to see if I was still alive... I've had a similar lack of luck…

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks very much to everyone who collected and sent in log files. The cause of the issue has been identified as specific to After Effects running on macOS, with a fix now available in After Effects version 22.0.1, which can be downloaded through the Creative Cloud Desktop app. After updating to AE 22.0.1, please restart your machine to ensure that any processes which might be blocking Dynamic Link have been closed before attempting to send any comps from AE to Adobe Media Encoder.

    In order to help us distinguish between the Mac-only issue that was introduced in 22.0.0 and other pre-existing issues with sending AE comps to Media Encoder, we are closing this report as “Resolved”.

    If you are still experiencing this issue on Windows or after updating to 22.0.1, please either create a new UserVoice post or find an existing one that matches the problem you are…

  18. Render Queue - File Name and Location Template bug in 2021 (18.4.1 (Build 4))

    so I have a project:
    F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\Film Name\CODE.2.6.2021.aep

    When I use the File Name and Location Template (in AE 2021 only, all other versions work fine)
    [projectFolder]\renders\FINALS[compName]_Proof.[fileExtension]

    It seemingly randomly saves the file(s) in either:
    F:\renders\FINALS* or
    F:\filmmaking\renders\FINALS* or
    F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\renders\FINALS*
    never F:\filmmaking\Client Name (587)\Film Name\renders\FINALS* like it is supposed to.

    If after I apply the template, I click on the link, it takes me to the dialogue showing exactly where it is supposed to go. Click render and it renders to the correct path.

    If I don't click the filename first, it renders to a random parent…

  19. Rotobrush 2.0

    The new Rotobrush 2.0 does improve the spline you draw or brush to outline what you need to separate from the background. However, in the latest updates, the propagation and freeze steps hang up on long frame scenes. After much searching on the forums other users have found we need to uninstall the updates for After Effects and go back to 18.1. I just did that and now Rotobrush 2.0 is performing naturally!

  20. Shift Forward Slash

    I SWEAR that if I was working in the Effects panel .. the Effects panel active ... I could press Shift Forward Slash to fit my comp viewer to All. Now I can't do that. In order to get Shift Forward Slash to work I have to activate the timeline panel or the comp viewer.

    I know this has to have worked in the past - I apparently have the muscle memory of using it when the Effects panel is active because I keep trying to invoke it and my "why isn't this working" frustration is fairly recent.

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks for filing this bug. This is a known issue in After Effects 18.4. If the Composition or Timeline panel are not focused, keyboard shortcuts for zooming the active viewer panel do not work.

    This has been in fixed in After Effects Beta (v22.1). Please install the latest build to confirm the fix. Apologies for the disruption.
