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.

    MAKE IT WORK PROPERLY, no HAP, seriously?
    Maybe you should discontinue After Effects, after all you make it worst on every new version, not only that you ******* always come up with some **** like not supporting hap, ffs get a life, do it properly.

    WE WANT HAP!
    Adobe why do not you listen?
    Can we think you're not capable?
    Or are there mysterious reasons?
    Our money is more accepted than complaints ........

    Adobe with every version tries hard to users leave adobe suite. This is most stupid thing i've ever seen. Oh, no! the most stupid thing in AE for example was not support professional graphics cards and not follow standards in graphic industry. Sick leftist minds!

    Yes this is very important for Pros, HAP is a brilliant codec for very High res movies at HQ

    I have CC 2019 for any work not involving HAP and CC 2017 for HAP projects. Until they sort it out just use CC 2017 for encoder / premiere / after effects and your good to go (just a couple of years back in time)

    Victoria! Please include the following information to Your pinned comment:
    One needs to install the old version 2018 of premiere pro and then install the linked hap codec installer. After this procedure HAP could be available in AME 2019 as a format choice in the format tab (just below H264 Blu-ray) and then the different subsided types are availabe in the export preferences.

    This is very unclear and undocumented as yet. It needs explanation.

    It is not necessary for me to keep paying the monthly subscription in case I can not count on AE to do the work all the way to the finishing line. I will return to the product when it functions as we require and as it did before.

    The HAP exporter you've linked to does not natively support After Effects, so this is not solved.

    ... and the linked installer quite obviously doesn't support the latest version of Premiere Pro.

    Victoria, I'm sorry but this issue is as far from resoved as ever possible.

    Or to quote the phrases that trigger Your system: There are still severe problems with the usability of after effects in a professional environment.

    Funny thing is, HAP is open source. Surely it wouldn't take much for Adobe to implement an encoder as well as a decoder.
