Adobe After Effects Bug-Fix Update Posted over 2 years ago by Simon Day - Posted in General

A new update for After Effects has been released, which resolves a small number of bugs, including a bug that caused After Effects to not be able to play back a cached preview in real-time on OS X El Capitan.

The After Effects CC 2015 (13.7.1) bug-fix update has addressed these significant bugs:

  • Real-time playback of cached previews on Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) is no longer slowed down by drawing the preview-time indicator (PTI) in the Timeline panel.
  • Advanced color profiles (e.g., profiles for ACES, ARRI Wide Color Gamut, etc.) that were installed by the After Effects 13.6 update but removed by the After Effects 13.7 update are restored.
  • On Mac OS X 10.10.0 and 10.10.1, when you start After Effects it will notify you to update to Mac OS X 10.10.5. After Effects will crash after launch on Mac OS X 10.0.0 and 10.10.1. To avoid this crash, update to Mac OS X 10.10.5.
  • Image sequences import much faster, especially from network drives. See below for a more detailed explanation.

Fast import of image sequences

In this new update, image sequences now import much faster, especially from network drives.

Fast import of image sequences is controlled by a new option in Preferences > Import > Sequence Footage: Verify Individual Files.

Verify Individual Files is disabled by default. When it is disabled, After Effects skips a time-consuming secondary verification of individual image sequence files during import.

This includes not resolving file paths of aliases or symbolic links (symlinks); aliases and symbolic link paths are still resolved when the frame is rendered. However, if an alias or symbolic link fails to resolve (e.g., drive is offline or the file has been moved), the frame will not be reported as missing at import.

If you encounter unexpected missing frames in an image sequence, enabling Verify Individual Files may avoid the problem at the cost of slower import speed.

As always, this update can be installed through the Creative Cloud desktop application, or by choosing 'Help>Updates" in your Adobe software.
