Since the recent Animate CC update, there are a few recurring issues that have surfaced, some of which are mentioned below:

1) Not able to render Movie Clips that are oriented and animated using the 3D Rotation Tool. The 3D orientation is not visible in the final render, but it is visible on the timeline.

2) Camera issues.

  • Pointless to add camera and advanced layer functions in Scene 1 only, as it destroys the purpose of nested symbols.
  • Need to optimize the camera as the scene gets heavy even with a few layers.

3) Other issues:

  • Layer filters are not optimized as well. The system crashes frequently when working with them.
  • Symbols disappear when re-opening the file.
  • Frequent blackouts when working with images.
  • Animate crashes when it is kept idle for some time.
  • Workspace issues - Toolbar and other menus disappear when Animate is booted. It has to be resetted everytime.

System Configurations:

  • Intel Core i7 (8th-Gen)
  • 32 GB RAM
  • Windows 10 (64 bit)
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB

Export format - .MOV (as it is not possible to export PNG sequence everytime in case of lengthy files and adding sound again in premier/after-effects)

I too ran some tests and was not able to see problem one. As for problem two, don't use scenes, thats old technology. As for three, are you using graphic symbols or movieclips?

Is it possible to show us imagery or a video of these bugs, so we can help you better?

As I am tired of the bugs in this curve program.

1. Bugs with the camera. Use the "Depth of the layer" on the camera. The first frame in the export will be a curve. And this is just one of the camera problems!

2. Bugs with deformation. SYMBOLS GET OUT! IS IT NORMAL? I WRAP A LOT OF TIME FOR ANIMATION, AND MY WORK GOES INTO THE DUSTY! A lot of "deformations" disappear after the opening of the project.

3. Why does hardware acceleration work only in a project? WHY I CAN'T USE IN THE WORKING ENVIRONMENT? 2019! You ask for big money for using this program.

4. Why when I put 48 frames per second, when I press "ENTER", does the animation play 32.26 frames per second? And THIS IS IN THE EMPTY PROJECT! But if you set, for example, 70 frames per second, then everything is fine! The project steadily holds 70 fps!

5. Today I left Animate open and went to sleep. Came, the program is closed! And when you open it turns out that there was a failure!

6. Why when I draw with a brush and cancel, it may happen that the drawn line is not deleted, but becomes an object?

About binding to the layers keep silent.

WILL YOU BE TO WORK WITH YOUR PROGRAM OR NO? YOU HAVE YOUR PRODUCT THAT YOU SELL TO TEST PEOPLE IN GENERAL?

Animate CC (all official releases so far) feels and behaves like a perpetual beta.

CS6 however is pretty stable. Not without its quirks, but one can do serious work in it.

With your CC license you can install Flash Pro CS6 and avoid most of the frustration.

I'm having tremendous issues with #2. I have some old FLA files that I'm trying to convert to using Advanced Layers and it's become clear very quickly that Animate CC with Advanced Layers ON is not suitable for any kind of complex animation/code situations. Judging by the scarce documentation, it appears to be a toy for beginning users.

Why isn't there more extensive documentation about Advanced Layers?? It seems like it was designed for one super narrow scenario and won't work for actual serious working scenarios. What's going on Adobe?

I am also experiemcing a bug, not sure if anyone else has come across this:

 

When I open an existing sessinon on anothber day, and try to move a graphic symbol, it sudenly snaps - twice as far, in the opposite direction!

 

It literally mirrors yourf movements, x2. It is some but nit all symbols, so I can't spot a pattern.
