Beta features

Scene Edit Detection.pngScene Edit Detection

Powered by Adobe Sensei, automatically detect scene changes in an edited clip and place scenes as layers for a faster project setup. Scene Edit Detection makes it much quicker and easier to reuse part of an edited video clip.

The Extended Viewport extends real-time 3D draft previews beyond the composition's frame boundaries. View 3D content located outside of the frame's edge, then bring it into the scene with ease. Switch back to standard frame view when you need to see your composition’s final look.

List of bugs fixed in version 22.1.1 

  • Fixed an issue that caused After Effects to crash on quit after using Maxon Cinema 4D exporter.
  • Fixed an issue with CryptoMatte plugin that caused After Effects to crash if EXR sequence was larger than the composition.
  • Fixed an issue that caused After Effects to crash when starting audio only preview while using Draft 3D.
  • Fixed an issue with sync settings that caused After Effects to crash on quit after downloading the preferences.
  • Fixed an issue where re-linking a multi-layer PSD file would produce an invalid buffer error if one of the layers was deleted.
  • Fixed an issue where PNG files with an embedded ICC profile were not being rendered correctly when the Linearize Working Space option was enabled for the project.
  • Fixed an issue where the Preserve RGB option in the Interpret Footage options was not preserved when opening projects saved in After Effects 17.7 or earlier.
  • Fixed an issue with Text layers that prevented copy pasting South Asian and Middle Eastern text into a text layer that previously housed Roman or Greek characters.
  • Fixed an issue where Adjustment Layers would not be copied correctly from After Effects to Premiere Pro.
  • Fixed an issue where Cache Frames When Idle may start when a plugins UI was active in the foreground which could cause the plugin to respond slowly or hang.
  • Fixed an issue that caused After Effects to crash when using Hand tool when the Fractal effect has been applied to a layer and has focus.
  • Fixed an issue with Composition toolbar that prevented new composition from inheriting the 3D renderer used in previous composition.
  • Fixed an issue with Ground Plane that caused 3D grid lines to have inconsistent thickness.
  • Fixed an issue with Draft 3D that caused blank or offset comp content when resizing panel or changing magnification in auto-resolution mode.
  • Fixed an issue that caused rendering of After Effect projects that use C4D renderer or Cineware to fail with Dynamic Link.

Just installed AE 22.1.1 I have the same C4D error as eickholt. See attachment. 

Doesn't anyone at Adobe check these updates before they are released?

A simple test install would reveal the same error we are having. 

AE installed C:\Program Files\Maxon Cinema 4D R25 but can't seem to find it.

I cannot load Cineware on a layer to change the path because it gives the error to install R25.

Is there some text file AE uses to store paths that I can change to the correct path?

Hi antinnit,

Thanks for your message. No, C4D isn't owned by Adobe. You can check out this document for full instructions on how you can retain previous versions of After Effects. Please let us know if you need assistance with that.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Steve,

Sorry to hear that. I'm testing on macOS Big Sur and had no trouble exporting a PNG from both AME and the Render Queue and had no trouble doing so. Are you running After Effects 22.1.1? Please let us know more information about your system and media so we can try to reproduce your error here.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin 🙂 how are you? please note that the december 2021 update (version 22.1.1) with the new Universal Text engine DID NOT FIX the text animators issue, so text animators still work left to right, with right to left text. and what's worse is that in the new update - there's no way around that anymore (no latin text hack to write left to right with animators left to right)

I have already filed a bug report DVAAE-4220657 about this in october when I first saw this in the beta, seems it hasn't been addressed. 

so as you can see, for one line, you may try to reverse the keyframes, and place them on End instead of Start (that can cause other issues) but with two lines there's no way around that. 

this is a very big problem for RTL users. this update in relation to type is actually a step back in terms of usability.

Same here. This is cruciual please fix the RTL text animators issue - the entire RTL user community suffers greatly from this - basically it makes AE 22.1.1 not usable, since this is a core feature.

People will not update until you fix this issue - or at least bring back LATIN Text Type until this issue will be resolved.

Thanks

When I create a new Cinema 4D file from After Effects, it opens Cinema 4D R25 and it says no license available. I uninstalled Cinema 4D R25 and reinstalled After Effects. It didn't fix the issue. R25 was installed when After Effects was. And I couldn't find 'Cinema 4D Lite.exe' file anywhere. I remember R21 had that in its folder. I'm on After Effects 22.1.1image.png
