    The fix from AE Beta 18.1.0 (Build 30) is now rolled out and included in the official AE 18.1.0 (Build 38) release candidate!

    - Footage Interpretation bug of ProRes444 as only 8bpc including incorrectly marked as "Millions of Colors" - FIXED!

    - Footage Interpretation bug of ProRes4444 when Alpha Channel is Premultiplied resulting in wrong unpremultiplied RGB values - FIXED!

    - Footage Interpretation bug of ProRes4444 when Alpha Channel is Premultiplied and "Premultiplied - Matted with Color" is somthing else then black (RGB[0,0,0]) resulting in wrong unpremultiplication and wrong alpha channel - FIXED!

    I checked everything and the bit depth is definetly there! ProRes4444 in not broken anymore ;)
    Thank you Adobe!

    Maybe, all of you should thank me that I made a lot of noise over at After Effects Beta Forum:

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-beta/problem-with-bit-depth-when-importing-prores-4444-and-hevc-10bit-files/td-p/11178126

    As it looks for today, it's finally fixed in AE Beta 18.1.0 (Build 30) although there is no word about it in the bug fixes release notes section.

    - Footage Interpretation bug of ProRes444 as only 8bpc including incorrectly marked as "Millions of Colors" - FIXED!

    - Footage Interpretation bug of ProRes4444 with Alpha Channel Premultiplied resulting in wrong unpremultiplied RGB Values - FIXED!

    ;)

    But I think we still need to wait for a final release candidate...
    Or did someone tested if it's already fixed and rolled out in AE 18.0.1?
    I can't test it right now because I'm in the middle of a project and don't want to update to 18.0.1 right now...

    Cheers Felix

    It's still not fixed in AE 17.5.1 and AE Beta 17.6.0 (Build 25) on Windows 10 v.2004 64 bit.

    I can't say anything about the Mac version because I don't have one and I can't test it.

    After extensive tests by looking at the actual RGB color values and not only judging by eye if there is banding or not I have to disagree with Ярослав Семенов.
    This is NOT only a GUI bug at least not on windows!

    There is definitely a loss of color depth information!

    This is a footage interpretation bug and not only a GUI bug.

    There is also another footage interpretation bug for Prores4444 files when Alpha Channel is Premultiplied. After unpremultiplication (interpret footage) the unpremultiplied RGB values are wrong.

    I confirm this bug!
    Bug exists on Wondows too!
    AE 17.1.4 (Build37)

    ProRes 4444 has many more bugs and it's totally broken in AE 17.1.4:
    - Rendering with RGB+Alpha with "Alpha Premultiplied" results in wrong Alpha Channel
    - Rendering with "Millions of Colors (8bit)" Data Rate and file size is higher then with "Trillions of Colors (16bit)"! Should be the opposite!!!

    Adobe fix this **** I need to work!

    I agree with you that the Gizmo is too big! Options for scaling it (auto Viewport scaling dependent and undependent) and the option for seperate hiding are needed. I also hate the design of it in general. Why is Adobe not able to look at other 3D programms e.g. 3ds max, Maya, Blender and copy that instead of recreating the weel in the worst manner. The axes lines of the Gizmo are way to thick, the extra big 3 handles on the axis bands for translation, rotation, scale are unnessesary if there is already a thin axis band line. These cover up content in your comp you might want to see. Overall it looks like a kids toy instead of welcome helper. huhh damm clearly someone with no 3D background must have designed it!

    What's even more absurd in the latest AE Versions is that C4D Lite gets installed but if you want to use it, you first have to create an account at Maxon (collecting your contact details e.g. email) and you have to be signed in! This was not the case in earlier AE versions, C4D was just usable without extra action needed. Come on Adobe I did't bought a product from maxon but I should create an account for that third party company?!...
    Even if it's a cost free account at Maxon - this is data collecting at it's best!
    Adobe, if your AE installer installs C4D on my system than I should be able to use it right away!
    Everything else I classify as scam ;)

    I haven't recognized this ProRes bug yet but ProRes 4444 has many more bugs and it's totally broken in AE 17.1.4:

    - After Effects interprets all ProRes 4444 files as "Millions of Colors" (8bit) although they are "Trillions of colors" (16bit)

    - Rendering ProRes 4444 with RGB+Alpha with "Alpha Premultiplied" results in wrong Alpha Channel! "Alpha Straight" is OK and works.

    - Rendering with "Millions of Colors (8bit)" Data Rate and file size is higher then with "Trillions of Colors (16bit)"! Should be the opposite!!! Whats wrong here?

    Adobe please fix this **** I need to work!

    In AE Preferences -> Display:

    "Hardware Accelerated Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels"

    Turn it off to test if that helps to get back normal performance.

    What really slows down the overall UI including Composition Footage Layer Window, Timeline, RAM Previews, Text Tool (Selecting text and Editing), Shape Layers, Activated Rulers & Guides, Panning in zoomed in Composition Window, drawing Masks, Painting etc. is when in Preferences -> Display:

    "Hardware Accelerated Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels" is activated!

    Especially when working with large footage files and compositions (4K, 8K).
    Turning it OFF in Preferences speeds up everything although I have a nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 board which should be more then capable to accelerate AE's UI.
    It should be the opposite (turning it on) but it's not!

    Adobe is still very bad at using the GPU properly and this GPU UI acceleration never worked for me on any computer I worked on regardless which CPU (AMD or INTEL) or GPU. I always turn it off for performance reasons for the good.

    Turn it OFF and enjoy a much more snappy overall UI ;)

    My System Specs are quite fast but Adobe is still crawling:
    AE 2019 16.1.3 (Build 5)
    OS: Windows 10 Pro 64bit
    CPU: AMD Threadripper 1950x (16 Cores @ 3,6 - 4,2 Ghz Turbo)
    GPU: nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 8GB StudioDriver vers. 431.70
    RAM: 32 GB G.Skill Trident Z Quad channel DDR4-3200 CL14
    System Drive: Samsung NVMe M.2 SSD 960 EVO 512GB
    AE Cache Drive: Samsung NVMe M.2 SSD 970 PRO 512GB

    I have read there was a change in newer nvidia drivers so Mocha did not recognised the GPU properly. This bug is fixed in MochaPro but it is not fixed in Mocha AE (AE Version 2019 16.1.3).

    In Mocha AE Preferences -> GPU:
    "GPU Processing is not supported See Logfile for details"
    [x] Allow unsupported GPUs (use at your own risk) checkbox does not help either.

    So Mocha AE complains about an unsupported GPU and switches to software only which is very slow with 4K footage although I have an officially supported nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 board.

    For further reading about it:
    https://forum.borisfx.com/t/gpu-processing-not-supported-ae2019/5098

    Adobe hurry up fixing this. martinb (Mocha Product Manager) at Boris FX forum said it's up to Adobe to implement the new and fixed Mocha AE version into After Effects.
