  1. About the phenomenon that the preview freezes and the error notification appears when duplicating the composition.

    I encountered a phenomenon that the preview freezes when processing in a specific order on Windows version cc2020 (17.1.4).
    It occurred even if I tried it on another PC in the same environment.

    Steps to occur


    1. Create a composition. (Including precompose)

    2. Read the aep file.

    3. Duplicate the composition created before reading the aep file on the project window.

    4. Duplicate the duplicated composition further. (The preview of the composition you create later will not be updated.)

    5. If you erase the layer in the composition that was duplicated for the second time after the preview freezes,
      You will…

  4. Bug - Wrong speed when playing the audio file

    I am new to Adobe Effects and am currently testing the application.

    I have created a new composition and added an audio file. When I play the composition. the music plays sometimes normal, sometimes too slow.

    I can't imagine that it is a feature. Especially since there was no notification or similar. In any case, this does not work as expected... In any other video editing program there is no problem playing the file.

  5. After Effects Minimax

    Photoshop has Minimum and Maximum and the option to preserve squareness or roundness.
    Do the same in After effects' Minimax, add an option to preserve roundness, since by default it preserves squareness.

  6. Add effects to better handle 3d passes

    with the upgrade of the EXR workflow inside AE it is easyer than ever to do 3d compositing inside AE. But there is a lack of native tools to do so.
    First of all the camera blur is slow, doesn't handle the aliased problems in the zdepth very well and doesn't produce a convincing photorealist blur...
    Next the pixel motion blur was a great addition when it was promoted a few years ago but it would have been great to be able to feed it with a motion vector pass coming from the 3d render to be able to produce…

  7. Time Remapping doesn't seem to function properly when used with EXR sequences

    Enable Time Remapping doesn't seem to function properly when used with EXR sequences. I rendered a multi-pass EXR sequence from C4D and split it up using ProEXR from fnord. However, in order to save time, I only rendered the frames that had animation on them, figuring I could time remap it in AE to add handles to the beginning and end. Usually, the workflow is to move one frame back set a new key, delete the final time remap key and extend the ending layer. This doesn't work, everything afterwards just shows up black. As a workaround I've had to…

  8. Background per line of text

    I'm missing the opportunity to add background to text layers. More specifically, a background that adapts to the line breaks in any given text.

  9. A quick color matching function in Lumetri

    After Effects has no quick color matching function for different clips.
    Please integrate a color matching function in Lumetri like you did in Premiere Pro.

  10. Bug Report: Camera Lens Blur "Repeat Edge Pixels" issue

    Camera Lens Blur's "Repeat Edge Pixels" feature doesn't behave as expected along the left edge at small (≤.5 pixel) values. The attached project file shows this behavior, from frame 11 to 30. Above .5 pixels, the feature behaves as expected.

    Adjusting with the Rotation and Aspect Ratio values can change the threshold at which this behavior disappears, but doesn't fix the issue.

    Tested on an updated AE2020 (17.1.4, build 37), Win10 x64. Occurs at all bit depths and compositing modes I could think to try.

    The "Attach a File" thing's being weird, so you can download the file here:

  11. Set Channel’s alpha with masks does not work if set to same layer

    The Set Channel effect does not seem to respect masks for the alpha source anymore, if the layer refers to itself.

    When „Source Layer 4“ points to the same layer it is applied to, with the dropdown set to „Masks“, the effect would apply the layer’s alpha, but only within the layer’s masks. Now, it does not respect the masks at all and won’t apply the alpha.

    Simple Setup: red shape layer with a mask, „Solid Composite“ with green color applied, then „Set Channels“ with „Source Layer 4“ set to the same shape layer, using „Masks“. See attached images for…

  12. AI-Generated Depth Maps

    There are many experimental and research projects that have attempted to create a depth maps from single non-stereoscopic 2D images. Many of these attempts have had greats results, and there are ways to get this effect for yourself if you scower the internet and piece together multiple free and open-source applications, scripts, and machine learning databases. But given that apps like Instagram already do a basic version of this for video in realtime, it's not unrealistic to apply the same effect to videos, especially as computers get faster and the research/resource pool grows in the next couple years. I know…

  14. soft light math changed?

    Has the math behind soft light blending mode changed recently? For years, I have used soft light to add effects with a 50% gray solid but now the results are different... I've tested the project settings/color management and can't seem to get this right...

  16. Stamp tool ignores masks&effects when selected different copy source with m&e

    Hello,
    I wanted to remove a tracker with the stamp tool today. But the stamp had to be lightened. Therefore I created a duplicate of the layer and lightened it a little bit with exposure. When I selected the alternative stamp source with effects and masks in the stamp, the effects on the post-exposed layer were ignored. This seems to be a bug. As an alternative I created a precomp and put the effect into it. Version 17.1.3 (Build 41 Windows) Thanks!

  17. BUG: CC Repetile gives empty pixels gap when applied to an adjustment layer

    When applied to an adjustment layer CC RepeTile generates 2 empty extra pixels between the tiles. This is a bug! The problem is present in both AE 2019 and 2020 versions. When applied directly to the footage it seems to work fine.

  18. make SET MATTE work as it should

    SET MATTE should work like TRACK MATTES.
    when using a shapelayer as the matte then the effect works fine,
    but not with other footage.

    AND NO.... i don't want to precompose every single s***.....
    Make a Checkbox in the effect: work like TRACKMATTE.....done

  19. 3d Model Importing into After Effects.

    I would like to be able to Import 3d Models into After Effects, and Not just through Cinema 4d.

  20. Need folders (like in Photoshop)

    Please. 2020 year today and you still did not create folders in layers. I don't need precomps often, but very need folders for easy and fast work.
