  2. Scripting Bug - Duplicating layers with layer controls

    I'm using a script I sell to make a grid of layers. For some reason, if there's an expression on the layer that I'm duplicating that points to a layer control on the layer or on another layer, it locks up After Effects completely. I can replicate the issue at will.

    I assume it's because After Effects doesn't know how to reference the expression as it copies? If I disable the expression, it works.

  3. Gaussian Blur (GPU) artifacts and quality issues

    Gaussian Blur (new GPU based one) has unexpected/poor results compared to the legacy one. Visual artifacts occur in 32-bit mode on adjustment layers, and in general it has a less natural, more blocky look than the traditional Gaussian Blur.

  4. Bug: Moving between screens with different scaling

    When click-dragging a property's numerical value (e.g. position or scale), if the mouse cursor crosses onto a screen with a different scaling setting in Windows Display Setttings to the one with AE in it, the value jumps. The bigger the difference in scaling, the bigger the jump.

  6. Roto Brush crash AE V 17.7.0

    Hi.

    Anybody else noticed this?

    Cannot use Roto Brush effect with UHD Prores 4444 material and colour management. Roto Brush crashes AE almost immediately.

    macOS 10.15.7
    GPU Radeon Pro Vega 48 8 GB

    Metal GPU Acceleration.
    Colour management on.
    32-bit ACES AP1 working space with Arri Log C material.

    When I turn colour management off, I can use Roto Brush.
    Exciting to see what happens when I have to turn colour management back on when compositing 😬

  9. Losing the ability to manipulate the objects in the 3-d space

    Every so often when a scene in AE is 3-d tracked I lose the ability to manipulate the objects in the 3-d space. I click on the object in the scene, the item in the editing bay, and every other way to make the 3-d handles appear and nothing works. When this happens it means I have to start from scratch because I can no longer move the objects. In addition I can not make the 3-d trackers reappear in the scene, even if I change the size of the track points. This typically brings them back into the scene…

  10. Please bring back features

    Please bring back features like "select single view" in viewer settings. It is crucial for those, who are working with 2D animations on small screens and need more screen estate. I've uninstalled version 18.0 and using older v17 until the feature returns. Thank you!

    Hi Tomas,

    Can you please explain further which option you’re missing? There were a few changes made in After Effects 18.0 that you might be referring to, and I think there might be a translation problem.

    In After Effects 18.0, the toolbar in the Composition pane was updated to reduce clutter and improve 3D workflows. Details are here:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/user-guide.html/after-effects/using/whats-new/2021-2.ug.html#ImprovedCompositionToolbar

    One thing that was changed is that 3D controls now only appear if you have a 3D layer in the comp. We’ve heard from a number of folks that the View Layout menu (selecting 1/2/4 views), which is part fo the 3D controls, is being missed. In the latest releases of After Effects Beta, which you can install via the Creative Cloud app, the View Layout controls are now also accessible via the View menu; you can access these options at any time without a 3D layer being present. Please try…

  15. BUG: White dot/blob appears in 8bpc project

    I have encountered a weird bug. First, I thought it was a fault in the project, but today I created a new, blank one, added an empty comp and the white blob is back. It looks the same and its on the same position.
    Since its repeating in a brandnew project, this is likely a bug.

    Its only visible in 8bpc projects, all higher bpc, this blob is gone.
    I haven't re-installed AE yet, since its a workplace station and the IT has to do this and also reinstall all plugins. During a working day, thats almost impossible.

    Do you…

  16. Multi sequence import it broken.

    When I try to import multiple sequences, they will all import however only the last one will have all its frames eg 0-249 the rest will have the frame I selected and say 0-0 or 180-180.

    It would be much more user friendly (and honestly save me a lot of time) if I could just import the folder and it would import the images as a sequence, or in this case multiple sequences

  17. Ridiculously slow and laggy interface

    I almost can't work in it. Third party effects are useless and the overall responsiveness of After Effects 202 is terrible. If I didn't keep getting the ridiculous drawing error in the 2019 version, I'd be using it. You HAVE to fix this issue fast. Your application is almost useless right now. People are going to switch. Right now, I totally regret upgrading to CC 2020.

  18. Closing one of two (or more) composition panels should make your other composition panels larger.

    Currently when you have two more composition panels open (i.e. one is locked and you are making changes in a precomp and looking at the effects of that change in a different comp), the default behavior when you close one of those composition panels is to collapse any surrounding panels inward, leaving the other composition panels the same size.

    This is annoying, because rarely do you want the effect control panel or your plug-in panel to expand. What you usually want is for the other composition panel to take up the space where the two were.

  19. BUG - Project Panel reset items position

    Every time I do CTRL-C (copy) on a layers in composition panel all items in Project panel resets its position. Often I work on dozens of Compositions and need to go through some and copy some layers from one to other after I hit CTRL-C I have to scroll Project panel to look for my destination composition despite of that it was just in place where I left Project panel before pressing CTRL-C in composition. Its just annoying.

  20. After Effects isn't importing a multi-layer tiff file as a composition.

    After Effects isn't importing a multi-layer tiff file as a composition. It goes through the motions but nothing appears in the project window.

    I can import as footage and allow it to select a layer or flatten the image, and it imports as expected.
