  1. AECC2018 on Mac has a problem about mp4& MOV

    AECC2018 on Mac has a problem about the 60fps mp4 & MOV.
    When I imported the 4 60fps mp4 files to new 30fps composition, AE preview screen caused the missing frame (or replace different frame) and insert the green or red screen that I don't add.

    Thank you for filing this bug report.

    Can you please post a sample MP4 or MOV that causes this problem? We will need a sample in order to investigate.

    What camera shot this footage? Does this footage use variable frame rate (VFR)?

    You can determine if an MP4 file uses VFR by doing the following:
    1. Select the footage in the Project panel.
    2. In the File menu, choose Interpret Footage > Main.
    3. Click the More Options button at the bottom of the Interpret Footage dialog.

    In this dialog, if the Variable Frame Rate Mode can be changed, then your footage uses VFR. Try changing the VFR mode to Smooth Video Motion, which will preserve the frame rate of the video, but potentially lose audio sync.

    Either way, please let us know if your footage uses VFR.

  2. CC Twister - Shading Problem

    In the 2018 version of After Effects, having the shading checkbox checked in the CC Twister effect panel worked as expected. After upgrading to 2019 After Effects, having the shading checkbox checked caused the element to blow way up and once the twist had completed, the location had shifted on the screen as well. The element using the CC Twister Effect is an imported Illustrator asset. By unchecking the shading checkbox, all went back to normal. Any ideas why?

  3. BUG REPORT: Switching to user defined layout

    Problem: Crashing related to user defined layout. May be related to palette / Script UI panel; XML file attached.

    Methodology:
    1) Moved all files at directory
    C:\Users\myUser\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects\16.0

            to another location, I.E. "Desktop / TEMP".
    

    2) Start AE. If no crash, add one file from "TEMP" back to "16.0"

    3) Repeated until files originally in
    C:\Users\myUser\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects\16.0\ModifiedWorkspaces
    were added back to the folder and found that AE crashed when activating the layout found in the attached XML. Other user defined layouts were tested as a precaution; none caused AE to crash.

  4. Merge Grouped Shapes sent from XD

    The new ability to send assets from XD to AE is amazing and helps a lot (especially for prepping disorganized Illustrator files).

    It would be great to merge paths that are at the bottom of a group. Or at least having the option to toggle it. My layers are nice and grouped in XD, but I don't want each path to be it's own layer in AE.

  6. Bug report: Text layer grouping alignment reverts to 0%

    When duplicating a text layer, the grouping alignment reverts to defaults (0%) on the new layer. A duplicated layer should retain all of the properties of the original.

  8. Bug report: "Noise" effect backward compatibility

    Create new project in AE CC 2019. Add "Noise" effect somewhere. Then Save a Copy As CC (15.x). After that try to open this project in AE CC (15). You will get an error that "Noise" effect is missing.

    Funny, but it's true. Fix this backward compatibility bug, please.

  10. Bug Report - Layers jump position on their own

    This is not an idea, it's a bug report, I have a bunch of layers staggered in time, they have no animated position, however, when the needle reaches the out point of the following or previous layer in the stack the current layer visibly changes its position. If I solo each layer then they behave as expected.

  11. Fullscreen Mode doesn't work on macOS

    Please for the love of god enable fullscreen mode in the entire Adobe suite. Why is this not a thing in 2018? When I'm using multiple Adobe apps at once, this becomes super frustrating as all of them are stacked on the desktop with other application windows as well.

    PLEASE, implement this.

    Thank you

  12. BACKSPACE BUTTON NEXT TO THE PLAY BUTTON

    Premiere Pro, After Effects, Character Animator and Audition should have this button, as Cinema 4D has. It's a great tool to do an invert reproduction.

  14. "Collapse Transformations" even when mask is applied

    When a precomp that is set to "Collapse Transformations" has a mask applied, Collapse transformations is disabled. It would be great to have the ability to both collapse transformations and mask a precomp. I understand that this could cause a strange effect with precomposed 3D layers, but imagine it would be a great way of dealing with a precomp of 2D layers set to various transfer modes.

  15. Bug: Essential graphics. Replacing comp breaks master property keyframes

    Master properties with keyframes works great so far in general, but I've found a major problem.

    If I replace the Essential Graphics layer with a new version, all the keyframes go away, even though in my case all of the master properties were the same. I also had trouble pasting the old keyframes onto the new layer. I was getting errors about what type of keyframe even though I was pasting the same kind of property (literally the same).

    What I was doing was trying to make an alternate version of my Essential Graphics template. The master properties stayed constant.…

  16. pointsOnPath/normalOnPath bug

    I'm using the createPath() function to create an arrow based on a driver path (the arrow will follow the driver path). I created a driver path that has two points and no bezier handles. I make the expression and the results are that the end of the arrow next to the first point on driver path won't take the expressions normals that I coded. They are at 0 height above the path. Until I add a bezier handle to the driver path's origin point - it can be any bezier handle, and everything will work as expected. I've included an…

  17. AE CC 2019 Make Current Time display larger

    The Current Time Display is probably the simgle most important number display in the interface. It is too small to comfortably read. Please make it larger (at least as a preference).

  19. AE 2019 fails to load libraries

    AE 2019 seems to fail to load libraries, or to just display them. It dosplays the title of the current library, but no item for it, and the list remains empty.

    objects from libraries, previously linked, work, and can even be updated. This is really the panel that stays empty.

  20. BANDING :(

    After Effects shouldn't generate banding errors easily (defined steps of luma and chroma). Premiere Pro goes better than After Effects in terms of banding when you use smoothed masks or blur effects.
