Our community highlight for this month's edition is Joseph's Behance videos for After Effects:

 

Top three troubleshooting topics from October:

 

1. Pressing the Alt/Option key switches to the Camera tool in After Effects 17.5

With the introduction of the new camera navigation features, most of the shortcuts that used the Alt/Option key no longer worked. This bug will be fixed in the upcoming version of After Effects. The fix is now available in After Effects Beta, build 17.5.1×41 or later. You can test the fix by installing or updating After Effects Beta via the Creative Cloud desktop app.

2. After Effects crashes with error "Couldn't find main entry point for Camera Raw.plugin (48 :: 72)"

Download and install Adobe Camera Raw 13.0.1 from the CC desktop to resolve this problem.

3. After Effects System Compatibility Report: Unsupported Video Driver

You can resolve the problem by downloading and installing the drivers manually:

 

 

Top three how-to topics from October:

 

1. How do I make an existing object track the camera?

2. Refine Hard Matte vs. Refine Soft Matte for luma keying

3. How to create an impression of passing under a bridge?
