    AE 2014 Crashes when copy and pasting layer styles

    Bryan Sliwowski Community Member

      So we found and reproduced an AE CC 2014 Crash on multiple desktops.  When attempting to copy a layer style from one layer and pasting it to another layer (we've tested this with .png, .jpg and text) AE crashes.

      AFTER EFFECTS CAN'T CONTINUE: SORRY, AFTER EFFECTS HAS CRASHED.  FOR AFTER EFFECTS HELP... (0::42)

       

      We have found the work around for now, if you put ANY layer style on the second layer then you can paste the style of the first layer to the second. Essentially, you need to tell AE that the layer you want to paste a style to is allowed to have a style.

       

      Anyone else having this issue?  I can tell you that the computers we tested this on are a Lenovo and a Dell.  The Lenovo is running a Nvidia graphics card and the Dell an ATI.  I can post more computer stats if necessary but it that doesn't seem to be the problem.
