working in 4k, 32 bit, full res, and using the offset effect has caused the alpha matte to stop working in this example AE project. the "shadow" layer dissapears entirely instead of being matted, not always, but most of the time. changing to 16 bit fixes the problem. also opening in 2019 fixes the problem.1 vote
Thank you for following up via email. We are able to see the problem and will be reviewing this issue internally.

When trying to change font style it is acting weird and I cannot change it on Macbook Pro late 20161 vote
Thank you for filing this bug. I can confirm that in After Effects Beta, version 17.6 build 20 (current on 19 Nov 2020) on macOS 10.15.7, when selecting the font style in the Character panel the first style in the menu is chosen regardless of which style you clicked on.
This problem does not occur in After Effects Beta on Win10.
We will investigate this bug for a future update.
Following up on Tim's request to post individual feature requests from Sander's site here....
Expressions and coding are some of the most powerful tools AE animators have at their disposal, so the fact that using them has such a negative impact on performance is truly disappointing and counter-intuitive.
"The interface slows down drastically when applying lots of Expressions, Code allows us to easily create complex animations and connect values. This is the highest on my list of improvements that After Effects can make."95 votesUnder Review · AdminVictoria Nece (Sr. Product Manager, Motion Graphics and VFX, Adobe DVA) responded
Just updated to After Effects CC 2019 V16.0.0. MacOS High Sierra, latest iMac with enough of RAM and supported GPU. Preferences resetted. CC 2018 works like charm without speed problems.
Anybody else experiencing a total slowdown of the UI with the new AE version?
Everything feels like frozen and AE is practically useless.
Sorry, cannot work with this. Returning back to CC 2018.
If this is not a general fault, any bright ideas what to do? Please...15 votesUnder Review · AdminVictoria Nece (Sr. Product Manager, Motion Graphics and VFX, Adobe DVA) responded
Thanks for letting us know, we’re investigating this issue. Restarting AE has helped at least one customer.
