  1. Warp stabilizer Dynamic link

    Recently I had to import a lot of edits from PR to AE, If you stabilized the footage in PR, somehow in AE it doesn't want to work when the warp stabilizer analyzes the footage nothing happens. you have to remove it and apply AE warp stabilizer. :/

  2. Application Memory leak - Crashing After Effects

    Since updating to macOS 12.0.1 and After Effects 12.1.1 build 74, AE is crashing with report run out of application memory. My Mac is NOT an M1 Mac. Anyone else getting this?

  3. Reloading updated footage does not reset RAM preview

    When new footage is detected, RAM preview should reset for the new frames it detects. Currently, it jitters back and forth between old cached frames and new ones.

  4. splines and masks

    How is it that mocha plugins masking is so much nicer and smoother to work with then AEs native splines/masks. Its so laggy and mocha is so smooth like butter.

  5. keeping plugins and scripts working when new version come out.

    You provide new versions too often. It's not comfortable to re install all plugins each time.

  6. Precomp and take existing anchor point

    When you precompose a shape layer, art layer or solid, the resulting comp should take the anchor point of that layer. Make it a checkbox in the Shift+CMD+C dialogue. Bonus points for calculating the average of multiple layers.

  7. Mp4 files showing green glitches, both in preview and rendering

    Whenever I import a mp4 file it appears green, even though the files are not corrupted or damaged. Sometimes in the preview I can see the file appear normal, without any issues and when I render it shows like a green screen. This doesn't happen when I import the same file into premiere so I assume the problem is with After Effects

  11. AFTER EFFECTS 2021 18.4.1 Bug > Not relinking / replacing missing files

    After effects version 18.4.1 stopped replacing missing files as before:

    1 - In previous versions when you replaced a missing file that is located in the same folder as other missing files in the project, AE would smartly re-link all files at once.

    Now it is not doing this anymore.

    2- In previous versions if on the Project panel search bar, you typed "missing"or even just "miss" it would show all missing media in your project, regardless of what type of media it is. Now you can only view missing media by specifically typing "missing footage"or "missing fonts" ", "missing…

  13. Source Text expressions crashes in Arabic

    When I use expressions for a Arabic Text on Source Text, It works in the beginning but after a few second AE crashes.

    If you want to see the crash, move the time indicator several times, or duplicate the layer several times.

  14. Pre-Comp Library

    Creative Cloud libraries are a great feature of the CC environment. What if we could save AE pre-comps as assets to be re-used in different AE projects?
    If I create a simple animation using AE shape layers, I might want to use the same animation later. I could render it, but that would be a destructive way to save the element.

    Can Adobe implement some sort of pre-comp asset file into the CC library ecosystem? If I create a simple shape layer animation and would like to save it as a pre-comp file outside of the original AE project, it…

  15. Bug report: paint stroke with shift

    using paint stroke with holding shift to draw straight lines creates multiple actions in the history, so I cannot undo the stroke with "Command+z"
    this applies to clone stamp tool as well.

    just checked the previous versions and last time it was working correctly was AE CC 2019.

    AE 22.0.0

  17. Reset After Effects error: internal verification failure, sorry! {itemH cannot NULL} (5027 :: 20)

    Every time I try to add text to my composition, I type a letter after adding the text box, and the letter appears in all caps and the character all caps button automatically turns on. Then this error: After Effects error: internal verification failure, sorry! {itemH cannot NULL} (5027 :: 20) pops up. This happens every time I type a letter, and I cannot type an under case letter because the "all caps" button is automatically activated every time I type.

    I am using the most recent version of After Effects 2021 (since 2022 seems to have media encoder issues.)

  18. Please fix C4D Renderer and don't set it as default

    Please don't set the "Cinema 4D Renderer" as default while it completely breaks every single feature of After effects 3D Layers.

  19. Farsi numbers issue in Essential Graphics

    There is a bug preventing Farsi text output from Essential graphics text output.

    After entering / pasting Farsi numbers into Essential Graphics input text box, they automatically turn into English numbers.

    Unless Hindi digits is checked in character pannel which forces them to Arabic numbers.

    Image 01: Farsi Numbers have turned into English Numbers upon submitting.
