The August 2023 release of After Effects, version 23.6, is now available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop application.

What's New?

Essential Properties in the Properties panel

When you select a layer with Essential Properties, you can use the Properties panel to quickly edit Essential Properties of a composition or precomposition that you added in the Essential Graphics panel without opening multiple panels.


What's Fixed?

  • Modifying the keyboard shortcuts for the Zoom In or Zoom Out commands for the Composition panel no longer causes the shortcuts to stop working. 
  • In the Properties panel, choosing Reveal in Timeline for the Position property when multiple layers are selected now reveals the property for all selected layers. 
  • In the Properties panel, clicking on the value of a property with an expression applied now correctly shows the pre-expression value. 
  • Using Shift+J or K to navigate the Timeline panel works as expected when After Effects is installed in non-English languages. 
  • After Effects no longer crashes when previewing for a long time with Draft 3D enabled.
  • After Effects no longer crashes when a script uses callbacks.callbackData.
  • Holding the Shift key while dragging the rotate handles of the 3D gizmo now constrains rotation to 5 degree increments instead of 45 degrees.
  • Duplicating both a layer and the track matte layer assigned to it now updates the track matte reference to the duplicated layer.
  • In the Properties panel, the Layer Contents window now auto-scrolls if necessary when you select a shape in the Timeline panel.
  • Reassigning certain keyboard shortcuts that have a default command assignment in the After Effects Menu bar (For example, Ctrl+Z for undo) now executes the new command instead of the default command.
  • The Roto Brush effect no longer causes After Effects to crash in certain cases where multi-threaded rendering fails.
  • In the Properties panel, changing stroke properties after changing stroke color type no longer shows an error.
