Hello, I've been working with after effects for 6 months now but this is my first time using brush tool.

the problem i am having is that when i make a brush stroke in layer panel, i cannot see it in layer panel but i can see it in composition window.

i have attached video as well.

i hope i can find answers here 🙂

 

EDIT:

i have just installed cc 2020 and it works just fine. still no idea why it wasn't working in 2019.............

I'm pretty sure this is something related to your graphics card. Try to:

 

- Update the graphics card driver to the latest version

- Deactivate GPU acceleration for effects in File > Project Settings > Video Rendering and effects. Change Use to Mercury Sofyware only and try to paint again.

There was, and maybe is still a bug with one of the builds of AE. I don't remember the build number or the version. Make sure your version (2020, 2019, or 2018) is up-to-date. I have seen other threads with this forum describing the same problem.

 

It also helps if you are in the Paint workspace so all the tools and options are available. You also need to make sure paint on transparent is not selected unless a target layer has been specified.

I am using cc 2019 and it is up-to-date.

I have also tried paint workspace and each every setting is correct (RGBA and stuff) but still not working.

only difference "paint on transparent" makes is white screen appears for a bit and then it's the same story again.....
