I have discovered what seems to be a bug in the new release of After Effects. (18.2)
When trying to edit an old file (135x135), I was surprised to see all graphics being “invisible” - Shape layers, images, texts etc.. Although no settings indicating that it should be.
After som investigation, I found that when changing from Full resolution to Half, it reappears. Same with Third and Quarter resolution.
Changing the canvas height (1 up/down) also makes the graphics reappear (eg. 135x136).
Changing the width only, doesn’t seem to work for at least values ranging from 129 to 144. (eg. 129x135 or 144x135).
Same problem seems to occour when working in the following sizes:
I have tested in both Catalina and Big Sur (Mac).
Have you tried anything similar, and where can i repport this?
Thanks for writing in.
Is it the Composition size of the media size that you have mentioned? I tried with both and it seems to be working fine. Could you share your system specifications (CPU, GPU, RAM) and the steps to repro it? If possible, please share a project file as well.
Looking forward to your response.
Thanks for the reply!
The issue occures when changing the Composition size.
I have tested on two different machines:
MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019)
macOS Catalina Version 10.15.7
2,6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7
16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB
iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017)
macOS Big Sur Version 11.3.1
4,2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
40 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
Radeon Pro 580 8 GB
The issue only occures in After Effects 18.2
I have added a test-project and screenshots.
Thank you very much for your time.
Thanks for sharing the details and project files, Christian.
I tested the project at my end and it looks completely normal even at Full resolution. Check out the screenshot.
Are you using any third-party plug-in which is installed on both machines?
