New Update 18.0.1
You cant click on the footage anymore to scale it directly with your mouse....?
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!
Thank you for reporting this issue. The behavior you describe sounds like a possible bug; the ability to scale footage with the mouse has not been removed. Would you be able to post a link to a screen recording showing the issue you are experiencing? And what are your system specs and OS version?
Thanks very much for any additional information, I hope we can get to the bottom of this.
- John, After Effects Engineering Team
