I am trying to do a scribble effect for a music video I am working on but When I try to use the brush tool in After effects to create strokes, lines, etc., the brush only makes a dot and doesn't follow through with my mouse. Any way to fix this? I think i might be doing something wrong but nobody else seems to have this issue.

Check your settings. Check the help files. Paint is not necessarily intuitive.

I am having the exact same issue with all my project files now (I believer right after the recent update). I cannot make proper strokes with any brush tool (eraser, brush, rotobrush, etc) & it only makes 1 dot.

I have been unable to find any answers or fixes yet.

A lot of people who updated to AE 15.1.0 -- the newest -- reported the same problem.  Apparently the update broke some functionality.

If you have neither the time, the inclination nor the tech know-how to fix it yourself, you can always revert to 15.0.1 and wait for the bug fix.

Yes.  By all means you should fulfill your unwitting membership in the Adobe Unpaid Beta Tester Program.

If Adobe follows true to form, in about 3-4 months.  If you're not that patient, revert to the previous update!

I am currently using the trial version of After Effects Pro. If I buy into the subscription, will I be able to download a previous version of after effects or will I be stuck with this updated version leaving me with the same issue?

I can confirm that I was having this same problem; I reverted to the most recent earlier version (15.1 rather than 15.0.1) and the problem was resolved.

No, I subscribed and it gave me the option to download previous versions. It seems that's the only way.
