When I hit shift and drag the time indicator to the end of my track unless I am zoomed all the way in it is not accurate to the frame. For example my track bar ends at 1.00f but if im not zoomed in when I shoft drag it snaps to 59.24 but to the naked eye it looks like its snapped to the end of the bar. Why does AE do this. It has led me to make mistakes many times.
see images -
The first one is zoomed a bit out and the second one shows where the indicator really is. If I shift drag I expect it to snap to the end where I need it to be.
All snapping in AE is resolution/ zoom level dependent since it happens at the UI level. It realyl has never been any different.
That indeed seems irregular, but the question is, what your layer consists of and what it is what you are doing elsewhere.Perhaps you merely inadvertently moved the layer, perhaps you use time-remapping or something...
