I'm trying out After Effects CC and doing a simple position animation with an easy eased keyframe. I'm hping to adjust the bezier handles in the Graph editer as I've done a thousand time but I can't get them to appear. Am i missing a check box or something somewhere?

They changed the defaults to show the value graphs, which for position don't have handles, since one would edit the path in the comp Split the properties or switch to the temporal graph.

Hey bud, I have the same problem and still can't find a solution, pathetic thing is I've been working with AE since CS2.

Some compositions I have handles on my masks and some I don't...it's weird and driving me crazy.

What does split the properties mean? and how do I do it?

Check to see if the masks are locked in the composition where the handles aren't showing. Also, check the Composition Wing menu's View Options to be sure that masks are turned on in the Layer Controls.

I am missing my bezier handles in the graph editor as well on position keyframes.

What does it mean to split the properties and how do I switch to a temporal graph?

Thank you.

Just right click on the Position property of the layer in the timeline.  Choose "Separate Dimensions."

Switch the graph in the little dropdown menu at the bottom of the graph editor.

Why? How is it better than it was? What does it do except adding a step to get the handles AND having the dimensions separated when you don't need it, forcing you to have more key frames than you want???!!! I don't get it. I guess it makes something else more comfortable but what?

Adobe doing what Adobe does. They now have to justify constant yearly releases, and have confused 'different' with 'better'. And they are not interested in your opinion, or mine.

I try to use their products as little as possible in my workflow, now. Nuke FTW (although I would still use AE for pure mograph...begrudgingly)

GOT IT. Go to Window > Mask Interpolation. Uncheck "Use Linear Vertex Paths".

I found how to add Bezier Handles in After Effects CC 2018. You just have to click here:

The button is called: Separate Dimensions.

I hope that this works for you, it worked for me

I may be missing something with this, but, when I 'Separate Dimensions', an other wise simple ease on my 'Position' movement, seems to go out of whack, and get somewhat unwieldy.

I don't seem able to keep my actual movement linearly. Is anyone else encountering this?

I understand the purpose of having the separate control over X,Y,Z, but wish I could simply add an easy to my A to B movement.Screen Shot 2018-12-07 at 11.58.11 AM.pngScreen Shot 2018-12-07 at 11.58.17 AM.png
