    Hi folks! A quick update to let you know that three new Multi-Frame Rendering features went live in the After Effects public beta (18.4×37 and later) earlier this week:

    • Speculative Preview: When AE is idle (you’re checking your email, grabbing a coffee or even just browsing effects), it will render your timeline in the background so you’re ready to preview when you get back.
    • Multi-Frame Rendering in Adobe Media Encoder Beta: Enable MFR in the AE Beta and export in the background up to 3x faster.
    • Render notifications on desktop, iOS and Android: AE can let you know when it’s done no matter where you are via the Creative Cloud app. (Fun bonus: notifications will even work on your smartwatch!)

    Here’s a link with more info on each feature:
    https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-beta/multi-frame-rendering-is-here-aka-the-multithreading-you-ve-been-asking-for/m-p/12131175#M925

    Let us know how things are working for you on the beta forums. And stay tuned for more Multi-Frame Rendering…

    Exactly what Jordan said. Also, to Victoria, please click back and sort the list of requests by "TOP" and let me know if your team might one day bother to respond to any of these long ignored, top requested features. It's shameful.

    We're truly grateful for all this and look forward to the improvements, but I guess this is our yardstick for how many years it takes the team to respond to a request goal. I know this one was a doozy, so hopefully you can now address the other top requests that have never been acknowledged or commented on.

    I have tried in vain to relay Adobe's absolute lack of communication around After Effects to their team. They don't care, they give me tons of "Oh yes, we're talking to the team about it and things are going to change!" Aaaaand, they don't. No updates on any of the other requests in here, even requests that have been marked fulfilled are not acknowledged. Meanwhile on the Premiere uservoice page and almost every other major app there are constant updates on progress. I am so absolutely utterly disgusted by the apathy from this team.

    Thank goodness we're paying so much monthly so we can watch nothing happen on almost every single request in here. If you check out the Premiere uservoice and sort by TOP you see their team at least has the decency to respond to the highest voted items. Unfortunately no amount of poking or prodding via social media or direct contact matters, Adobe always cuts/pastes "We'll check in with that team and hopefully fix that!"

    Again, the years fly by without so much as an acknowledgment from Adobe much less implementation. Can't even express how much this would make a HUGE difference in our workflow.

    Just one more little nudge, not that it matters, to expect any customer support or the faintest acknowledgement from Adobe in this forum would require a miracle of conscience from their absentee support staff.

    Can someone, ANYONE, from Adobe do us the freaking courtesy that other Adobe improvement forums seem to have, and acknowledge some of these suggestions? This one in particular is critical to just about ANY FREAKING ANIMATOR I KNOW using this app. Premiere, Photoshop etc all have Adobe people chiming in regularly, here it's crickets. Frustrating to say the least.

    As a workaround for importing video to animate against, you can import a PNG or JPG sequence (File → Import Cycle…) and use the Cycle Layers option for Start = Synced to timeline. This is new in version 2.1 released in April 2019.

    Or how about the team fix it so this app can use prerecorded video? I can't believe it doesn't have the basic functionality already, it's been asked over and over and over.

    Thank you for reporting this bug. Our team is investigating the cause of this problem.

    This problem occurs when rendering from the After Effects render queue using premultiplied alpha. If you change the alpha mode to straight (in the Output Module Settings dialog, set the Color option to Straight (Unmatted)), the problem does not occur.

    Hey Tim, how about you respond to the TOP voted suggestions since most have been sitting here ignored by your team? Do you even care that in each of these top voted requests there hasn't been a single word from your team? Or that each of those forums is filled with angry posts begging for your team to respond? Why does almost every other Adobe uservoice page have responses to their top requests but not you?

    Mobile notifications for renders are now in public beta! They’re available in build 18.4×37 or later. You’ll also need the Creative Cloud app on iOS or Android.

    If you haven’t used the public beta before, you can download today’s release in the Creative Cloud desktop app. Look for the “Beta Apps” tab on the left side. The public beta installs right alongside your release builds and projects are compatible so you can go back and forth as needed.

    Looking forward to your feedback! You can share your thoughts in our beta forum here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-beta/render-queue-notifications-now-available-in-18-4x37/m-p/12131167

    We really appreciate you commenting in here Jessica, but how about you address some of the greater requests or mark some of the higher ranked ideas as anything other than "totally ignored by our team." I know bug reports are critical, but if you're willing to comment on this post, then why not any of the hot ideas or top ideas?

    I have pleaded with Adobe support via Twitter and every other medium on earth for their developers to communicate with us more than once a year or so on these forums. Premiere and every other major Adobe app has constant updates on uservoice requests that have been voted up, here we get crickets on requests that are years old and never acknowledged. It's truly despicable of Adobe to treat this user base with such disregard.
