List of bugs fixed in version 22.1.1
Sorry for the frustration. Can you verify that you are running After Effects 22.1.1? Please check and report back. If you are not sure how to check, please refer to this FAQ.
Kevin, Yes I am. What I ended up doing is uninstalling and reinstalling AE 22.1.1 through the CC app. That fixed the problem. thanks!
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?
Also I tried uninstalling and reinstalling a couple times and that did NOT fix my error.
Is anyone home at Adobe?
Is C4D owned by Adobe and thats why its part of After Effects now? I always seem to have to uninstall, is there anyway I can have this not autoinstall with every update pls? Thanks.
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.
Will you be addressing the dreadful, terrible experience you're giving the community in regards to Snapping in AE before FY23?
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.
Same issue on Windows10...latest build...super-user workstation. Can not export PNG since 22.1.1 using Render Que BUT works if send to AME.
Errors attached...hit 1st "ok"and then next errors appear.
Sorry, hit "reply" on wrong thread! Meant the one above!
This new version compatible with Mac Mini M1 running Monterey?
Nope latest Big Sur, waiting to upgrade to Monterey
I cant get Borris Mocha FX to come up under animation tab.
Since the last update I am unable to open after effects.
This is the error i get every time:
Hope you can help out.
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.
Kevin he is right
Please help us fix it asap.
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.
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 22.1.1
