  1. Bug Report AE 22.1.1: Menu Bar and all right click drop-downs not working

    Menu bar and all right click dropdowns are not working in AE 2022. You click an item in the menu bar and nothing appears, you click again and it shows up for a moment but disappears when you move your mouse over to click on a drop down item.

    When you click for the first time, you can click on drop down items by guessing the approximate location of where they are but they are invisible so it's a guessing game.

    This makes AE completely unusable. Fixes when you delete your preferences file but it is not feasible to delete…

    Hi all,

    Thank you for reporting this issue and for your continuing feedback. The team is aware of this problem and is investigating potential fixes.

    The issue appears to be that After Effects is not being fully "focused" on launch due to dialogs being shown during launch or other applications being focused while After Effects is loading. The workaround is to click the After Effects icon in the macOS Dock if the menus are not working. This fully focuses the app and should allow menus to behave correctly. Please let us know if this doesn't fix the issue for you. Relaunching can also help ( as noted below ) but clicking the After Effects icon in the dock is much more direct.

    Again, we are investigating fixes for this issue to be included in a future version of After Effects. We will update this post when a fix becomes available…

  2. The Responsive Design intro moves to the cursor

    When I try to stretch the layer from the beginning it is the display of the Responsive Design area that comes.

    Hi Bruno,


    Thanks for filing this bug. We're aware of the problem, and the bug is awaiting review by our developers.


    This problem can be caused by any marker sitting on the first frame of a layer, not just a Responsive Design – Time marker on a pre-comp. The issue is that when After Effects checks what objects are under the mouse, it finds the marker first. This is especially problematic for Responsive Design – Time markers, because they are meant to move with the layer.


    Until the bug is fixed, you can work around the problem by moving the Responsive Design – Time marker out of the way, stretching the layer as desired, and then right-click on the layer bar and choose Markers > Update Markers From Source. (Alternately, you can modify the stretch and in/out values for the layer in the In/Out/Duration/Stretch columns of the Timeline panel. They're…

  3. Bug Report - Preview Resolution Changes Raw Images Gamma in "Linear Working Space"

    Since a couple of updates I've had this weirdest glitch.

    On imported RAW images, when the preview resolution is set to anything less than "Full", the layer's gamma suddenly gets waaaaay off.
    This only happens if "Linearize Working Space" is checked in Project Settings.
    I've also reproduced this bug with .dng instead of .RAF, so the RAW image format does not seem to matter.

    Currently using AE 18.1 on windows 10, Camera Raw is up to date and this glitch happens whether GPU acceleration is on or off.
    Unfortunately I can't seem to find on which version thig bug appeared,…

  4. Rename master properties feature

    Can AE follow the lead of XD, Figma and Sketch and rename this feature?

  5. Preview window stuck in bottom right corner

    Using After effects 2020 on a iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011). The preview window is stuck down in the right corner. Can only see half of it.
