How can we improve After Effects?

Support the HAP codec

The HAP codec, which is massive in the live video industry, is no longer supported.

Please bring it back? It would be very nice.

        I used HAP a lot for big screen projection and LED events.

        Not sure what to use anymore? Please bring it back!

        ...I'll be the 448th vote asking for this. Is there a status update? "We're going to find a solution" doesn't cut it.

        Also, if anyone from Adobe actually ever reads this: don't remove industry-standard tools without a plan for replacing them!

        New update, nothing Hap ......
        I'm really disappointed with the behavior of Adobe!

        Today I installed the update of After Effects & Premiere.
        Still no HAP or other often used Codecs. So I went back to Install the Media Encoder 12.0. Now I still have the Chance to render without a second encoding. But it's still not how it should be. We have a lot's of productions that now take way longer because of this.

        Very frustrating, many modern professional content creators use HAP extensivley for realtime content creation... need this back ASAP!!

        Hi,

        When can we expect HAP go be reinstated please?
        I think it would be good to get an update?
        Thanks

        @Anonymous You actually need to keep CC 2017 around for quicktime interoperability, not 2015.

        @Adobe please find a way to bring back codec support for Media Encoder!

        At the meantime dont forget that you can install after effects 2015 to convert to hap

        Please bring back the codecs!! Not just HAP but the other codecs as well. This is ridiculous!

        How could you think about removing HAP?
        It is not a codecs that you use to play, Adobe wants to penalize those who do the most spectacular jobs?
