  1. Export mxf, h264, h265 - just like Premiere Pro can do

    After Effect users are convicted to use Media Encoder to output .mxf/op1a and h264/h265. But Premiere can output all of these - why can't Ae?

    The route from Ae to AME is far from smooth - so it will save a lot of time to have these output codecs handy from within After Effects.

  2. [BUG] Draft 3D not working

    Updated to 18.0.1 today. New Project. Draft 3D button is clickable, but nothing ever happens. If hovering the button, it says 'enable hardware accelerated panels in prefs/display', yet I got that already on. Could anybody help? What did I miss? Does the GPU or driver version matter?

  4. Visibility of After Effects Work Space

    I am 90 and taking a course in AE for personal enrichment at my local Junior college. The current workspace for AE is all black and the icons at the top are o small - that combination makes it difficult to use. I saw a tutorial on Vimeo in which the workspace was a light grey in color and the icons where reasonably large to be able to use. So I suggest that Adobe make this a new standard for new users and beginners to learn AE more easily. As a former technical writer/editor I wrote highly detailed instructions manuals…

  5. Show full project file path in header

    I use the "Edit Original" option out of Premiere a lot. It opens up the associated After Effects file. But there are times where I have multiple AE files in Premiere and would like to know which AE file I am actually working on.

    I know the filepath is in the header of the app. but please show the full file path. There is plenty of space up there yet my filepaths are truncated with ellipses. Please give us an option to see the exact location of the project. As it is now, I have no idea the exact location…

  6. After Effects v18.0 won't start

    After I installed v18.0 of After Effects, AE will not start. The launch screen gets stuck at "Initializing Required Components"

    I've tried renaming Rename 18.0 as 18.0old in C:\Users<user>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects

    I've tried clearing the Media Cache stored at: C:\Users<User>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Common

    All with no luck. Crash file attached.

  8. Import multiple image sequence in one go

    When importing multiple image sequences (by pointing to one frame, just like when importing only one sequence), Ae imports only the single frames, not the sequences.

  10. Split this forum into BUG REPORTS & FEATURE REQUEST sections

    Why is this site combining Feature requests AND bugreports together.
    I can't even filter Requests from bugreports.

    At least a filter would be nice to have!

    Thank you

  11. BUG: Collect Dependencies - Adds a space to folders names

    Having an issue when I collect dependencies on a project as it adds a space to folder names. This then stops the files backing up to One Drive due to the space being added to the project and changing the names from what I set in the AE project files.

    Please could this be stopped. Thanks

  12. A bug in After Effects with importing ProRes 4444 files with alpha

    After Effects is not correctly interpreting the alpha Chanel of ProRes 4444 files - if there is an alpha fade in the imported 4444 video, a black shadow can be seen under the fade - this is the same whether premultiplied is selected or not. I have loaded the same files into Motion and Millumin and they work correctly. See the attached still - the text should be fading from transparent to white but is showing as transparent black during the fade.

  15. Pixel-Perfect Art

    After effects is a fantastic tool for animation, and it has nearly everything you need to succeed, but it leaves me wanting more when it comes to smaller canvas sizes. I'll expand on what I mean. To achieve crisp pixels in after effects, one has to set their layers to draft mode and deal with subpixel sampling. Shapes within After Effects don't exist as pixels but as vector art interpreted as pixels. For example, if you position a pixel at an X or Y coordinate with a decimal point, like "200.5", the program will do its best to render a…

  16. Major Bug in AE 17.7 Related to Illustrator and Color

    Imports from Illustrator are showing colors that are way off. This appears both in the imported illustrator layer and when the Illustrator layer is converted to shape the color is wrong. I was not having this problem in 17.6 and when I downgraded and opened the exact same project the colors were magically fixed. This is a major issue that needs to be fixed immediately.

  17. Tracker that notes how much time you actively work in a project

    I know there are many apps out there to track how long you work on a project. But if you are like me you switch between adobe apps and projects all the time. When it is time to make my invoice I sometimes use auto save to see how long and when I worked in a project. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just push a button and get an overview on how long you (actively) worked in a project?

  19. Composition toolbar tools order.

    A dynamic composition toolbar is fine, but PLEASE put the tools in the same order as they were before. Grid/Guide Title Safe first, Mask Shape path visibility 2nd and so on.

    For those of us who have been using clicking a position to activate a a tool for 20+ years, changing the order is a big PITA!

  20. レイヤースタイルを部分適用させてほしい

    書体は部分的に変更できるのにレイヤースタイルは一部分けできないので不便です。テキストをコピーして別のレイヤーにペーストしたら元のスタイルまで変わってしまうので使い物になりません。レイヤースタイルも部分的に適用できるようにしてください。
