As part of AE Beta 22.0x46 and above, there are changes to the set of Output Module templates that are created and changes to the Output Module Template Defaults.

 

When After Effects is installed for the first time, or if you clear your preferences, the following changes will be made:

 

  • New Templates Added
    • Two new templates have been added, High Quality and High Quality with Alpha. High Quality is based on QuickTime ProRes 422, while High Quality with Alpha is based on QuickTime ProRes 4444. 

 

  • Older Templates Removed
    • The QuickTime and AVI NTSC and PAL DV templates have been removed.
    • The Save Current Preview template has also been removed.

 

  • New Defaults
    • The Movie and Save Current Preview Defaults will use the new High Quality output module template.
    • The Pre-Render and Movie Proxy Defaults will use the new High Quality with Alpha output module template.

 

 

When upgrading to a new version of After Effects with existing Output Module templates, the following changes will be made:

 

  • The new High Quality and High Quality with Alpha templates will be added to your existing set of templates. You can delete them if they are not needed and they won’t be recreated.
  • No existing templates will be removed.
  • No defaults will be changed.

 

 

Please let us know if you have any issues accessing or interacting with these new templates.

 

Thanks.

Upon launching .46, all I get is this debugger dialog, and then upon pressing OK AE quits.

Thanks for reporting this. We are working on reproducing internally. Doesn't appear related to the output module change mentioned above, but something else that went into this build.

We've identified this was an issue that was fixed shortly after the x46 build was made last night. It'll be fixed in the build that is released tomorrow. Sorry for the trouble!

Love it!  ProRes is a worthy successor to Animation.  Thank you.
