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.

        And while you're at it, could you please reinstate DXV-3 support? Another format used by live events professionals.

        Please bring HAP back, as an events professional I use HAP all of the time for media server content and the loss of direct After Effects rendering has caused a huge problem both in time and confusion for my clients and suppliers.

        I have about 20 - 24 hours of quicktimes, all in older codecs. All of a historical nature. None can be re-shot. I fail to understand why Adobe dropped support for older QT codecs without first having good replacements for them. Those of us working with older footage can not and WILL NOT update. Our livelihoods were built on Quicktime, and they still depend on it.

        Bring HAP back to After Effects CC 2018, can't work on older projects anymore

        I have been talking to Adobe support and I have been met with untold ignorance and the usual "we are sorry for the inconvenience".Dear Adobe, impacting people's workflow in this wreckless manner is not exactly an "inconvenience"
        Please restore support for the HAP and DVX codecs.

        Just spoke to Abobe support about this issue and fortunately the response is positive:
        "As I can see here it seems that it was a bug that it was deleted... And we are working to get that solved."

        They told me that use of HAP in Adobe CC should be re-implemented in the next "3-4 days", 5 max.

        Fingers crossed

        HAP is the worst loss we have in the Adobe.
        probabily more than the dolby support

        Hi Victoria,

        Thank you for taking this under consideration. How is the progress on this looking?

        Best wishes,

        Vincent

        We need HAP to supply our clients with the format they need. Adobe CC is so flexible why remove one of its most useful codecs?
        Pkease bring HAP back.
