since the last update - I'm running 18.1.0 Build 38 now - some shortcuts stopped working. Being more specific, as far as I realized it the following shortcuts stopped working:
- V (for Selection Tool)
- Shift 1, 2, 3 (for Markers from 1 - 3)
I already double checked my shortcut cheat sheet, but everything in there is fine.
This usually happens, when I'm on a tight deadline, so thanks Adobe once again, for screwing up my workflow.
Without any system information or other technical details nobody can even guess. It could just as well be an issue with another app "stealing" inputs, invisible windows e.g. for screen recording or video conferencing software blocking shortcuts or general input failures with whatever device you are using. Start by trashing the prefs and shortcuts config file to restore factory defaults. Anything beyond that will require much better info on your part.
Thanks for getting back to me, Mylenium!
As I tried to state as clearly as possible, I have not changed anything regarding my setup, except for updating After Effects to the newest version. I haven't updated Windows nor any drivers, I did not install any programs or other sort of software in the meantime or changed anything else regarding my setup. That's why I'm so bummed out, because stuff like this keeps happening every now and then after an update.
I will try what you recommended - thanks!
Little additional info about my system:
Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 64.0 GB
MEG X570 ACE (MS-7C35)
GPU 1 - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
GPU 2 - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
NVidia Studio Driver 460.89
Thanks again, best regards!
I have the same problem with the latest update. I keep getting an error message "Unknow BIB error". Many projects stopped working, there were no problems before the update!
The October 2020 update (17.5) made some long-overdue changes to the 3d workspace & camera, which included a few shortcut key updates. I'm surprised you didn't see it then, but here's some info: https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/work-in-3D-space.ug.html#camera_controls
V should not have been affected, to my knowledge. (It works normally for me.)
You can revert Shift + 1/2/3 to the default behavior in Prefs > 3D
thanks for your answer.
No need to be surprised, that I didn't see it, though, because I already took care of disabling that new feature, before I posted in here.
In the end, completely removing AfterEffects, all of its preferences, plugins, scripts and whatnot did the trick.
Not the best workaround, if you're on a tight deadline, though.
I am actual experiencing this now on my current pc.
Try to use Undo(ctrl+z) basically all my crtl+ buttons are responding
Have you checked in AE's Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts to confirm they're mapped correctly?
Do you have any other apps or peripherals installed that could be overriding the functionality?
