  1. FIX After Effects 2022 V22.0.1

    After Effects 2022 v22.0.1 DOES NOT EXPORT TO MEDIA ENCODER on Windows. This problem was reported for Mac, but it was directly stated that others have the same problem on Windows. Exact same symptoms, exact same behaviour. You try to export a video from After Effects using the Media Encoder Queue, and nothing happens. Media Encoder opens and just sits there doing absolutely nothing.

  2. Modern 3D Realtime Engine (GPU) for VFX and Motion Graphics

    After Effects finally needs a competitive 3D Realtime Engine (GPU) for 3D compositing and virtual workflows of the future. The Link to Cinema is too slow, complicated and unstable for simple 3D compositing tasks. So it needs something like "3D Elements" on steroids and native in AE.

    Dranging some 3D Assets into AE, add some effects, tweak and light them, is a must have in 2022. Compositing, Motion Graphics and VFX are not only 2D/2,5D! - they happen now also in 3D and Realtime!

    What this new real time 3D Engine needs:
    - 3D Geometry Support (import/export)
    - PBR Shaders…

  3. RAM Preview not real time on MacBook Pro M1 Max

    I'm currently having to use After Effects 2021 instead of 2022 because 2022 will not RAM preview in real time. I'm running a brand spankin' new 16" MacBook Pro M1 Max with 64GB Unified Memory & 4TB of space. The system is screaming fast so this AE issue is evidently a bug. Please fix as soon as possible Adobe because AE 2022 looks amazing and I'm dying to dive in.

  4. Please migrate the stuff we install properly

    Revolutionary idea: Migrate all my scripts and presets to the updated version. It should not break every major update. All content gets left behind when the previous version is deleted, so why not migrate the scripts that I have installed automatically? It does so for all settings, but I keep having to reinstall my scripts and custom UI panels. Other way would be to have a folder somewhere that contains user scripts? Like in Documents/Adobe where there is already a folder?

  6. Make the 'I' shortcut go to the earliest inPoint of multiple selected layers

    Currently the behaviour when using the 'I' keyboard shortcut, when multiple layers are selected, is to move the CTI to the inPoint of the top-most selected layer in the layer stack. This would be far more useful if it moved the CTI to the inPoint of the group, ie. the earliest inPoint of the multiple selected layers.

  7. Extended Viewer as an option to be enabled for 2D rather than only 3D

    The new extended viewer is a great addition to the program, nice being able to see outside of the viewer frame! It would be amazing if this was an option for a 2D workflow, there's definite benefits for being able to have vision of what's outside the frame

    A workaround for those who like this as well, you can create a simple 3D layer and hide it. It will allow you to still use the draft 3D mode to have the extended view enabled for your 2D layers. Not sure what impact it would have on performance though having 3D…

  8. Wrong render output when rendering multiple composition with different resolution in the same queue

    I'd like to report an issue we are facing since After Effects 22.4 and 22.5 (it doesn't affect AE 22.3) on two different workstations running macOS 12.4 Monterey.
    This, by the way, doesn't happen on a windows 10 workstation.

    The problem is easily reproducible. In a project, create 3 compositions with different aspect ratio, 1920x1080, 1080x1080, 1080x1920 .
    When you queue the composition in this order 16:9, 1:1, 9:16, the last rendered (9:16) seems to be squashed in a 1:1 ratio, with a green rectangle at the bottom.
    When rendering in 16:9,9:16, 1:1, the last rendered (1:1) outputs to a…

    AE 22.6.0 (Build 64) keeps throwing error: attempt to remove an item from a position outside of list length (27 :: 9). The error happens any time you undo something, or move a layer or keyframe in the timeline. Working inside a TEAM PROJECT, which I assume is part of the issue. AE is almost unusable as the error throws constantly.

  10. Bug Report AE 22.1.1: Menu Bar and all right click drop-downs not working

    Menu bar and all right click dropdowns are not working in AE 2022. You click an item in the menu bar and nothing appears, you click again and it shows up for a moment but disappears when you move your mouse over to click on a drop down item.

    When you click for the first time, you can click on drop down items by guessing the approximate location of where they are but they are invisible so it's a guessing game.

    This makes AE completely unusable. Fixes when you delete your preferences file but it is not feasible to delete…

  12. Bug Report: Immersive Environment Projection Options

    In Version 18, they removed the "VR Goggles" from the Composition Window which is where we would change the projection for the Adobe Immersive Enviroment so that the footage would be properly displayed inside of a VR Headset. You didn't give us another place to change this settings so any versions of AE past 17.7.0 are unusable for 360 VR workflows. Can we get our button back? #AdobeUXQC_Fail

  13. Make All Effects 32bit Compatible

    I use After Effects for compositing my 3D renders, and I always export 16 or 32 bit EXRs, starting to use ACES. Unfortunately, many, many effects are still only 8 bit, some support 16, and some can do 32. If you don't want to lose me and many other compositors (at least those that are left), please update more effects to 32bit!

  14. AE 22.6 Bug CSV File Issue

    After upgrading to AE 22.6, I am unable to render a comp that uses a CSV file to assign colors to multiple shape layers. I keep getting error 512. After rolling back to 22.5, the project works again.
    The mogrt I created from this project also crashes Premiere 22.6.1 when I try to render. Rolling back Premiere to 22.5 fixes the problem.

  15. Lock Workspace

    I think it would be useful to borrow the Lock Workspace feature from Photoshop for After Effects, esp with the wide use of so many scripts and CEP panels in many workflows. I accidentally pull off tabs or slide them around in my day-to-day use of AE, esp since I’m using a Wacom pen most of the time.

    I’m sure there’s some wrinkles to consider, esp when switching Workspaces while locked - do you prompt with a pop-up or automatically switch it?

  16. BUG - Fast Box Blur repeat edge pixels creating line of pixels on right side, After Effects version 22.6.0

    This bug only seems to be in After Effects 22.6.0, I can't replicate it in previous versions of After Effects (2021, 2020, 2019). It seems to happen when Fast Box Blur is placed after some effects, but can't quite pin it down to certain effects. CC Toner, Curves, Fill, Fractal Noise. The layer is not off center or otherwise transformed. Opening projects in previous versions does not show this bug.

  17. Text selector not working

    Hi, AE will not let me select all of my text with my cursor no matter how hard I try.

    I downloaded the latest beta and this issue still persists. This basically inhibits me from doing any work efficiently being that I work with a lot of text on a daily basis.

    Please fix this very BASIC and core issue. The stability and updates for AE and Premiere have been extremely disappointing lately.

    It feels like you people just stopped caring about your user base.

  18. Crash when Duplicating Layers v22.5.0

    I found a reproducible crash in AFX CC 2022 - (no crash with CC 2021 and older.)

    This happens with JavaScript expression engine - no crash with legacy ExtendScript engine.

    I have a null layer with a shape layer parented to it.
    The null layer has an expression in the Position property.
    The expression looks at the position of the layer that is "index - 2" above it. (There are two null layers above, so the expression works.)

    When I duplicate the null and shape layer together, then drag then to the bottom of the stack, all is normal.

    If…

  19. Memory Leaks errors when exiting the app when a comp uses the Particle Playground effect

  20. New Shape Layer 'Expression Repeater'

    How about a new type of Repeater for shape groups that looks pretty much the same as the existing one, except that values in it's Transform properties are not applied cumulatively, but rather have their expressions evaluated individually for every copy of the shape?

    So if I add a random expression to the repeater's Position property, I get a bunch of randomly positioned copies. Ideally we'd get expression access to something like repeaterIndex (like textIndex in text layer expression selectors) but even without any new syntax it would be amazing. I can already imagine making a growing vine which automatically…
