After Effects Clone Stamp Won't Release

This has been driving me nuts for years. I'll be clone stamping something, I'm on frame 45 and clone 829, and the while I'm painting, the stamp won't "release," meaning when I let go of the mouse, the stamp tool remains engaged and paint chaos begins. I have not found a way to reliably release the tool other than button mashing. Caps Lock doesn't work, saving doesn't work. 

 

It is extremely frustrating and I'm surprised to find that no one has posted about it!

 

Any ideas on how to "release" the stamp tool?

Hi @trashcaneron,

Thanks for reporting this issue. Since this seems like more of a Bug than an Idea, I've moved it over to our Bug forum.

 

Would you be able to provide a screen recording of the issue when it happens? Additionally, what are your system specs and what type of input device (mouse, pen, tablet) are you using?

 

Thanks for reporting this issue and for any further information you can provide,

- John, After Effects Engineering Team

Hi @trashcaneron,

Thank you for making that recording. Unfortunately, it doesn't show enough of the UI to give us a better understanding of what might be causing the issue. Would you be able to share a fullscreen recording, rather than a cropped one? Feel free to share the link with me privately to avoid posting it publicly, it will not be shown to anyone outside our team or used for any purpose other than understanding the bug.

 

Thanks again,

- John, After Effects Engineering Team
