  1. BUG: Double clicking keyframe in timeline does not open keyframe properties

    When double clicking a keyframe in the timeline the keyframe properties do not open, only the keyframe is selected. You need to manually right click and edit the keyframe to change values.

    This issue only started when updating to AE Version 17.1.3 (Build 41) on Windows 10.

  2. Access text properties (kerning, font size, leading, etc) via scripting

    Access text properties (kerning, font size, leading, etc) via scripting
    We need more access to text properties via scripting. It will be helpful to change, for example, the font size of a text layer via scripting, that way the textbox stay the same size becouse right now I can only change the scale of the layer and it changes all proportions of the layer (height and with in pixels, size of the textbox).
    If we can access to that properties via scripting we can let all LayerObject attributes the same (textboxes, width, height, scale) and only change font size, leading,…

  4. Compatibility issue - MacBook Pro 16 - AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB

    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.

  5. Interpret footage bug

    AE2020, Mac i7:


    1. There is an asset in project encoded with Apple ProRes 422 LT movie with assigned profile HDTV (Rec. 709) 16-235.


    2. This is incorrect so user selects Interpret Footage.


    3. User sets color management to sRGB working space.


    4. Closes and saves file.


    5. Reopens file and the asset has gone back to the old profile again, HDTV (Rec. 709) 16-235!

  9. Change camera controls back to the mouse, please!

    The Camera controls trough the three buttons of the mouse provided an amazing workflow for setting the camera moves.

    The recent upgrade of AE i did now doesn´t have the Camera Tool anymore, instead, is divided into three different functions; "Orbit Around Scene Tool, Pan Under Cursor Tool and and Dolly Towards Cursor Tool".

    By doing this change the workflow has become WAAAY slower for me, since i have to keep hitting C to change between tools.

    These three functions used to be accessible through the three buttons of the mouse, and it was so much intuitive and easier to…

  10. [BUG] ProRes DNxHR RGB 444 12 bit Export fail


    1. Export ProRes DNxHR RGB 444 12 bit with no Alpha, but "premuliplied" setting

    2. Import the Rendering back into AE.

    3. Playback reports error. Video is black.

    Workaround: Set the output alpha to "straight" even though there is no alpha channel.

  13. Drop shadow/stroke not working when 3D mode is enabled on layers

    I've successfully tracked a video to add text into it.
    Drop shadow and stroke will not show up unless I turn the 3D layer check box off.

    I've added drop shadow as a regular effect and as a layer style.

    This has to be a bug of some sort, I've done this many times before.
    I'm working on After Effects 2020

  14. Output profile bug

    AE 2020. Renders to Prores HQ with a workspace setting of "Rec.709 Gamma 2.4" produce a file with the incorrect profile "HDTV (Rec. 709) 16-235" when read back in, producing a gamma shift with colour management turned on.

    Renders to Prores 4444 seem unaffected.

  15. One AE file can be edited by 2 or more person real time.

    I work in a company and we mainly use After Effects for production. There are times that we need to produce a lot of videos that are separated in different compositions and in a very tight deadline. We can't help each other since it is not feasible to work in one AE file with 2 or more persons using it. Is there a way that this can be possible?

    Thank you for filing this report.

    Your screenshot shows that you are launching After Effects 15.1.2, but asking it to open a project saved by After Effects 16.0.1.

    You can resolve this by one of two methods:
    1. Use the command line to launch After Effects 16.0.1 (aka After Effects CC 2019).
    2. From After Effects 16.0.1, choose File > Save As > Save A Copy As CC (15.x), and render from that project file using After Effects 15.1.2.

  17. Display color management

    You could add the same new Premiere Pro color management in After Effects.

    Thank you for filing this request. Can you please clarify what you would like to see added to After Effects? Please post that as a new request. This one has been closed as Resolved.

    After Effects has supported display color management for many years. More information is available on this page:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/color-management.html#enable_or_disable_display_color_management

    A difference between how Premiere Pro and After Effects use display color management (DCM) is that After Effects has a fully configurable color management pipeline, whereas Premiere Pro uses DCM but does not allow you to configure a project working space. In order to enable display color management, you must choose a project working space in After Effects. (Project Settings > Color) Once a project working space is set, DCM is enabled in After Effects.

    Under the hood, Premiere Pro currently assumes Rec. 709 for most color management tasks. This is a simplification of what actually…
