  1. Team Projects in AE crashes every time you try and copy a PSD from one composition to another

    I'm trying out team projects for the first time with 2 other animators. I created a master team project file that they are trying to incorporate their existing AEP files into. Each animator imported their old AEP files into the team project. They need to copy layers from their imported comps and paste them into compositions that I made in the team project. Every single time they hit command C to copy the layers from their imported projects, AE crashes and shuts down completely without warning. This was reproducible on different computers on different Adobe accounts. It also happened on…

  2. Bug Report - Broken text animator on 3d-text layers

    Text gets cut off along the top of the text box boundary when animating in from the Y-Axis -- only when the text layer is 3D. Seems to be a new bug with the latest AE update. Would appreciate it if you guys could check that out. Thanks!

  3. Advanced Puppet Pin Reordering Bug

    CC2018 (15.1.0-build166) / MacOS 10.12.6

    I am not able to change order of advanced puppet pins after pin position has been modified. Doing so kills preview and breaks mesh. If I revert back to original order, preview is restored and mesh works again.

    I'm able to recreate this problem on multiple machines.


    1. Apply puppet mesh to layer

    2. Add 2+ pins to mesh

    3. Adjust position of pins

    4. Change order of Puppet Pins

    5. Move layer position (not sure if this is necessary)

    6. Adjust position of pins

    Sometime works for a few seconds after, but eventually preview will fail. revealing mesh will show…

  4. Rename master properties feature

    Can AE follow the lead of XD, Figma and Sketch and rename this feature?

  5. Submitting a bug which continually crashes After Effects

    I have discovered a bug in After Effects. Here you have a few very simple comps nested inside each other - no matter that happens, when I double click on ShieldShoppingBag comp and try to interact with ANYTHING inside the comp, timeline, layers etc, AE crashes without warning. Please look into this and fix!

  6. Stroke and Cinema 4D render

    When a stroke is applied to a shape on a 3D layer and the Cinema 4D renderer is selected, when trim paths is used the width of the stroke changes. When the Classic 3D renderer is used, this does not happen.

    Thanks for filing this bug report, and for sending us the project file.

    Our engineers are examining the problem. Regarding the project you sent, they gave this feedback:

    This problem is independent of using Trim Paths.

    The problem can occur with shapes or text converted to Shapes, as in the provided project. With the CINEMA 4D renderer the Shape stroke width does not match the Classic 3D renderer – there is both a stroke symmetry shift around the path, and size can vary as well.

    The stroke mismatch is typically quite small. However, the provided project has Transform > Scale set to over 300%, thereby exaggerating the problem.

    To work around this you could avoid using a large scale value on the shape layer. Adding scale per shape path almost eliminates the problem visually, but is impractical to do for each shape.

    Another workaround could be to maybe prep the…

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    This is a known problem that we are investigating for a future update to After Effects. The problem happens when you migrate preferences from an earlier version of After Effects.

    If you reset the preferences for After Effects (hold Command/Ctrl + Alt/Option + Shift during application startup), this problem will go away.

  8. Crash-related CRLOGS-Files fill up OS-drive

    The latest AE Version is dumping huuuuge CRLOG-Files on the OS-Harddrive after crashing (which as everybody knows happens quite a lot).

    The Files can reach 20-35gb each. These files are meant for UPLOAD and this is unacceptable.This concerns workflow AND data-privacy. ADOBE just wanted to upload 120gb of my data to their servers from my workstation. This is NOT acceptable.

    WHAT ARE YOU UPLOADING THERE ? This is way more than just Crashlogs !!!

    And this is blocking my OS, my upload-feed and slows my system down.

    This is a perpetuum mobile of ****: AE crashes all the time, then…

    Thank you for filing this bug report. We are investigating the problem.

    You can safely delete the CRLOG files from your system. These are crash log files that are supposed to be automatically deleted.

    You can change your Adobe crash report preferences from within any Adobe application by choosing Help > Adobe Crash Reporter.

    Edit: Can we contact you for more information, via the email address you used when you filed this report? Thanks.

  9. Super annoying bug - missing layers in timeline

    Experiencing a particularly annoying bug; timeline shows only 43 out of about 260 layers. Yet preview will scrub and playback full project. So I can watch the full project, I just can't access or see most of the layers.

    Thank you for filing this bug report, and for including the project.

    I do reproduce a problem when I open this project on my computer. After layer 964, the layer bars (the bars representing the time span of the layer) do not draw. If I delete or shy some of the layers, the missing layers will draw.

    This appears to be a bug with After Effects drawing that many layers at once. I have forwarded this bug to our developers for evaluation.

    In the meantime, I would recommend any or all of following to work around this problem:
    - Shy the layers that you are not currently working on.
    - Pre-compose groups of layers to simplify the composition, or:
    - Otherwise re-organize this composition by breaking it into smaller compositions with fewer layers.

    The above steps will help not only with working around this bug, but will make the composition…

  10. AE CC 2020 (17.0.2): Transform Effect Glitch on Render (Rotation)

    AE CC 2020 17.0.2 Build 26
    macOS Catalina 10.15.3 (19D76)
    MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019)
    2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
    64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
    AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB

    There is a glitch that is especially noticeable with the TRANSFORM effect in AE CC 2020. Easily reproducible:
    New composition
    New solid
    Add transform effect
    Add rotation keyframe
    Add second rotation keyframe further down (1x cycle)
    Render

    There are random black glitches on rotation. This does not happen with the native transform (non-effect version).

    Does not appear to be reproducible with RX580 in 10.14.6.

    Issue disappears with Mercury Software…

  11. Preview window stuck in bottom right corner

    Using After effects 2020 on a iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011). The preview window is stuck down in the right corner. Can only see half of it.
