After Effects 18.2 is now available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop application. This release of After Effects includes support for DirectX12 on Windows. DirectX12 now replaces OpenGL as the default display rendering technology for After Effects and Premiere Pro on Windows, providing a more modern codebase with improved stability and performance. In addition to that, many bugs have been fixed as well.

This is the wors update ever now AF is ussless. Clean installation (adobe cc, gaphic drivers) doesn't help even old versions don't work... I am devastated because adobe support does not exist... Seems like I am not only one with this problem. https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/after-effects-18-2-freezes-at-start-up/td-p/12031414
Really sorry to hear about this, Dziurdzia.D.
Can you provide the following info? FAQ: What information should I provide when asking... - Adobe Support Community
The more details you can provide, the better.
I am devastated because adobe support does not exist...
Did you try contacting 1:1 support? If you have a case number, I can check the details.
Looking forward to helping you with this.
I would lowe to be more specific but Adobe is not sharing Logrecords with anyone this seems to be big secret, I spend 40 minutes on phone with technical service without connection with anyone just waiting for the technician. Adobe seems like worst software company with monthly subscription...
I have seen both the discussions that you have linked and responded to them.
Adobe doesn't share log records with anyone. I think a better way to get connected is to start a 1:1 chat with an agent. Go to this link and click the message bubble at the bottom-right corner of the page to get started. Make sure you're signed in with your Adobe account.
If you can DM me the number you dialed for phone support, I'll be able to verify if you dialed the correct one.
