Hello

 

I just downloaded the latest version of AE, and what a surprise : the EFFECT panel is a total disaster (how can you publish and update, even in Beta, with such a bug ?)

 

When, in your main comp, you open a precomp and add effects on a layer, if you go back to the main comp and use the EFFECT panel on any layer, it goes directly to the last layer of the precomp !

Managing to see the proper effect of the proper layer is then really hard, you have to click on all the layers randomly until the EFFECT panel finally displays the effect of your layer.

And even that way sometimes it goes into the precomp and displays the effect of the layer in the precomp.

 

AE became totally unusable

 

Worse : if you manage to see the proper effect of your layer, and modify datas, sometines it randomly goes to the layer in the precomp, show its effects, while still displaying the dropdown menus or text aera of the effect you were mofifying in the main precomp. And then : it crashes

Hi @alexv50240868,

Thank you for reporting these issues. We are investigating both the crashes you've mentioned and the issue with the Effect Controls panel.

 

Regarding the Effect Controls issue, would you be able to share a screen recording of the issue as it occurs? We haven't yet been able to reproduce it in our investigation. It's possible that it is related to a certain setup in a project.

 

Thanks for any further information you can provide,

- John, After Effects Engineering Team

After this bug report, i confirm that I can't use AE Beta 24.2.0 (Build 14) other than doing a CMD-S after each action. Otherwise, it crashes so easily that all i did after last save is lost.

I will record my screen, but one thing i can tell you to reproduce the bug, is that the issue is happening when i drag the EFFECT panel under the PROJECT panel

 

... this, is my workspace for small monitors (eg. when i work only with my 14" laptop)

 

It happens too when I drag the EFFECT panel on the left of the COMPOSITION panel

 

... and this is my workspace for my 32" monitor (then I can have the PROJECT panel and the EFFECT panel direclty available, not tabs, more productive)

 

It seems that when the EFFECT panel is at its default place, as a tab, close to PROJECTS, everything works as usual

This issue can be found in both AE 24.1, 24.3, 23.6. The effects control panel, if you click into it or drag an effect into it, jumps into a different composition. If you detach the window, the effects control panel does not update to the selected comp. Behavior is normal until several comps and effects are added to the project.

Recently I am facing the same exact problem. (AE v24.4 as well as AE beta ver).

Not sure if thats the case for everyone, clearing the cache from (edit > purge > all cache) helped me out.

In addition, for certain circumstances, closing all the unnecessary tabs in AE sometimes help too.
