After Effects 22.4 is now available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop application. This release is recommended for all users.

 

What's new?

There is a new preference to separate the Position property dimensions in the Timeline by default. When enabled, the Default Position Properties to Separated Dimensions preference (available in Preferences > General) automatically separates the Position property into X, Y, and Z when a layer is created.

I'm having issues with the 3D tracking.

After 3D camera tracking and adding a NULL, the controls are warped and trying to choose a selection of tracking points always has the red circle (selection) sideways. In this instance I only picked 1 tracking point.

I do this all the time, and this is the first time I'm having this kind of result and I just updated today.

Hi @JamieWoods,

 

Sorry to hear that the 3D camera tracker isn't working correctly for you. 

  • Can you test this behavior in a new project? 
  • Are you on Windows or macOS? 

 

If all the projects exhibit the same behavior, can you roll back to the previous version and let me know if that is working correctly? 

Here is how you can reinstall the previous version: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/faq-how-do-i-reinstall-a-previous-version-o... 

 

Thanks,

Rameez

I just updated and now my dropdown windows don't correctly.  They open and then when I go to select they disappear.  Also, the don't lock open so I can select.  This is driving me crazy.  Any one else have this problem?

I do have another issue with the audio.  When I export audio out of Audition with the correct levels and put the audio track in After Effects, the audio level drops consideralblly in playback and the final render.  By almost half, and that is with turning the level on the audio track all the way up in After Effects.  I have noticed this problem ever since I upgraded to CC2022.

My computer is MacBook Pro 16" 2021, Apple M1 Max, 64 GB.

This happens to me ALL the time. Restarting AE seems to fix it every time, thankfully.

I am still having this issue, and restarting After Effects doesn't help.  It is also inconsistant.  I had two projects today that both had the propblem. So I adjusted the audio in Audition and re-exported it.  I imported it in to AE and this time the audio was way to hot.  The other project I adjusted the audio, re-exported, imported, and it was still to low.  This is becoming very frustrating.

Hi @Kazek Lokuciewski

 

What kind of computer do you have? 

After Effects would freeze on the splash screen mostly due to third-party plugins. If you have any third-party plugins, remove them temporarily and see if it works. 

 

If you want to roll back to the previous version, here are the instructions: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/faq-how-do-i-reinstall-a-previous-version-o...

 

Thanks,

I have facing so many issues with this 22.4 version, that I uninstall it and install the 22.2.1 which the last steady one.

 

My problems (I am on WIN10, PC) :

 

- the first start popin when the app is opened is impossible to close, the click is deactivated, the soft is blocked, the only solution is to open After Fx via a project, then to go in the preference and to prevent this start popin to appear.

- It's impossible to close the app, when a project is loaded. Even with CTRL + ALT + SUPP, so I can try to force via the task manager, it doesn't work, I have to restart the computer.

Hello, Rameez: I have version 22.3 but 22.4 does not appear on my CC page, even after refreshing, restarting CC and refreshing again.
