Hi, community!

 

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season! Happy New Year to all of you. This edition is late by a few days (sorry about that!) because I was out of the office for a long time enjoying my parental leave ๐Ÿ‘ผ and sabbatical. 

Community Highlight

Adobe is partnering with School of Motion to deliver a FREE and LIVE motion design workshop targeted towards anyone who needs to deliver motion graphics for social media. New users and/or designers will enjoy this workshop packed with very useful tips and tricks. The workshop covers how to create stickers, overlay graphics, and more! Sign up here.

 

Top troubleshooting topics from January 2022

1. After Effects Menu bar and mouse right-click not working on macOS Monterey

The After Effects team is aware of this bug and are working on a fix. Meanwhile, here are a few workarounds to this bug:

Workaround 1: Open the project file in Finder (not from After Effects)

Workaround 2: Click the โ€œLearn" workspace preset

Some crashing bugs have been fixed in After Effects version 22.2 and some performance issues are being addressed for a future release.
