After Effects 17.1.4 is now live!

After Effects 17.1.4 is now available for download from the Creative Cloud desktop application. This updates adds two new enhancements and contains several bug-fixes.

 

What's new?

  • The Channel Combiner and Channel Effects are now GPU accelerated
  • Motion Graphic templates that utilize the Roto Brush Effect can now be imported into Premiere Pro

 

What's fixed?

  • The Create Shapes from Vector Layer command is now disabled for Illustrator layers if the source file is missing
  • Bug fixes for the Median effect when rendering transparent pixels: alpha channel edges render correctly in 32-bpc color, and layers that are completely transparent no longer return an error message, “Photoshop Library operation failed”
  • Fixed an issue where using shape stroke taper was generating a spike at start and end points
  • Fixed an issue with Master Properties that was causing the push and pull buttons to be grayed out after keyframe interpolation changes
  • Fixed an issue where adding dropdown menu items to existing Motion Graphics templates and replacing in Premiere was resetting previous selections
  • Fixed an issue in the Echo effect, where it could produce garbage pixels in output

 

Complete documentation:

Keep the cameras rolling on Twitter @AdobeVideo

We used to have our video content spread out across a few different Twitter handles, but we've restructured with you in mind! By the end of this month, all Twitter conversations will be happening @AdobeVideo.

 

Join us there to stay up-to-date with changes to the application and opportunities to connect with other artists like you! We hold contests, share tutorials, and collect feedback for future improvements. By consolidating the Twitter handles, we're hoping creators of all types will share their work – we can all learn from each other!

 

Check it out, see if it suits you!

Resources for working remotely and learning After Effects

In order to make it easier for our community to work at home, we're taking several measures to minimize disruptions and make connecting with colleagues and clients easier during this time. We're very pleased to announce that all Creative Cloud Individual members can enjoy the benefits of our Team Projects service for Premiere Pro and After Effects at no additional cost.

 

How does Team Projects benefit me?

Team Projects allows motion graphics artists and editors to collaborate on the same Premiere Pro and After Effects projects while working from home. For detailed information and FAQ, read this blog post: https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-offers-team-projects-to-premiere-pro-and-after-effects-users-with-a-creative-cloud-individual-license/

 

This work at home period also provides us with an opportunity to upskill ourselves. We can utilize this time to learn After Effects and other tools. For new and existing users, this can be a very productive time to go through the After Effects user guide and video tutorials.

Avoid Phishing: 3 Easy Ways to Identify Adobe Staff

We have received several reports where some individuals in the community are posing as Adobe Employees. These individuals are falsely representing who they are to gain your trust, and possibly access to your computer or personal information by offering to help troubleshoot issues.

 

Here are 3 Easy ways you can identify Adobe Staff:

➊ All Adobe Staff have a RED ADOBE BADGE below their profile picture and an Adobe logo after their username. This staff badge is visible on Adobe Staff profile pages, original posts and reply threads. 

 

➋ Genuine Adobe emails are always __________@adobe.com

 

➌ Adobe Staff will never ask you to share your passwords or sensitive information in the Adobe Community. Adobe employees will always direct you to communicate through an official Adobe channel to set up support sessions.

 

Report abuse or suspicious behavior to: phishing@adobe.com

FAQ: How to fix "Display Acceleration Disabled" in After Effects

If you're running into a problem where After Effects displays a message on the Composition panel that says Display Acceleration Disabled, follow the suggestions given in this post to fix the problem.

 

macOS:
• Make sure your MacBook is connected to the power source
• Go to Preferences > Display and toggle Hardware Accelerate Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels
• Go to Preferences > Video Preview and toggle Enable Mercury Transmit

 

Windows:
• Update the on-board and dedicated graphics drivers of the computer. If this happens after updating the graphics driver, reinstall the previous version of the driver

NOTE: Nvidia driver version 442.92 seems to cause this problem on many systems. If you have installed this driver, please reinstall the previous version

• If your computer has Nvidia graphics, make sure to update the GeForce Experience software as well
• Go to Preferences > Display and toggle Hardware Accelerate Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels
• Go to Preferences > Video Preview and toggle Enable Mercury Transmit


If none of the steps given above help, obtain the System Information file (.NFO) and After Effects logs from your system and share them with us. Here is how you can do that:

Log files:

  • Launch After Effects and go to Help > Enable Logging.
  • Work in After Effects for a few minutes.
  • Then go to Help > Reveal Logging File.

 

System Info:

macOS:
Follow the steps given in this article: https://support.apple.com/en-in/HT203001


Windows:
1. Hold the Windows key and press R to open the Run window
2. Type msinfo32 and click OK
3. From the System Information window, go to File > Save
4. Save the file as .NFO

 

After collecting both the files, upload them to Adobe Creative Cloud Files by following the steps given in this article (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/share.html) and share the URL in the comments section below.

Adobe Enables e-Learning for Schools Impacted by COVID-19

UPDATE (March 19)

 

Thanks for your patience. We've been busy processing your requests.

We've started notifying schools who are eligible and have been provisioned successfully. We're hoping to complete the current set of requests soon.

We'll update this post soon. However, we also received many requests, where the information provided was duplicate, incomplete, or incorrect; it's taking us a bit longer to go through such requests.

 

We really appreciate your patience, please bear with us as we work through all the requests.

-----------------------------------------

With rising health concerns, many schools are moving to online learning. We’re giving our global K-12 and higher ed institutional customers the ability to request “at-home” access for students & faculty.
