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:
Add transform effect
Add rotation keyframe
Add second rotation keyframe further down (1x cycle)
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 Only rendering. Happens with Mercury GPU Acceleration (Metal), which is the only option available on MBP16,1 with native GPU.
Same is reproducible with RX 5700 XT in eGPU in 10.15.3 (19D76).
When will this be fixed?
Brian DeViteri commented
Can you provide any ETA on a fix? Colleagues are into exact same issues with iMac 27" eGPU setups in Catalina. It's especially a problem for projects that are built with transform as a "template" effect.
Thank you for reporting this bug, sorry to see you're experiencing this issue. The AE team is aware of this problem with 16" MBPs and investigating possible fixes.
