Welcome to the March edition of our community recap. Let's start with my favorite part of this post — the Community Highlight — where we feature one of our community gems every month. This month, our community champion is Roland Kahlenberg. An Adobe Community Professional (ACP) for many years, Roland has been sensational in helping users in our community. He is a regular in the After Effects community with over 2000 posts. His time and expertise are highly appreciated!
Roland’s been a Content Producer since the early 1990s. For over two decades he has helped fellow professionals and hobbyists with their Adobe After Effects exploits through various online channels.
Roland has lectured on Adobe After Effects and all aspects of Video Production at undergraduate and post-graduate levels – not bad for a graduate in Economics, from the University of Toronto.
These days, Roland spends his time working on projects for multi-nation brands, government statutory boards and for Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro users, he develops creative tools and intelligent MoGRT templates. Roland’s focus now is on developing full-featured, intelligent content-aware Motion Graphics Templates for bespoke Brands.
Roland is one of a few individuals certified in both Adobe After Effects and BorisFX MochaPro. Mixing Motion Design with Graphics, Visual Effects, and music make perfect sense for a multi-disciplinarian such as Roland.

3. Users can no longer see the 1, 2, 4-View option in the Composition Window
There is a known bug in After Effects 18.0 where users are unable to change views as the Select view Layout dropdown doesn't appear in 2D comps. This will be fixed in an upcoming release. The workaround is to add a 3D layer to the comp.
